The organisers at Bloodstock Festival have confirmed a revised line-up for their 2021 event, set to take place this August.
Due to ongoing restrictions with the pandemic, the festival organisers have stated that some overseas bands are unable to make the dates, with Mercyful Fate dropping from the line-up as Saturday main stage headliners, though they are set to return to headline the festival in 2022.
Instead, Kreator will now take the vacant Saturday slot to headline the festival for the first time. Also added to the line-up are Bloodshot Dawn, Seidrblot, and Evile.
The festival has also announced that Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Butcher Babies, Life Of Agony, Sacred Reich, Necrot, Exhumed, and Unto Others will unfortunately not be able to make the 2021 festival.
