Bloodstock Open Air Festival have confirmed a few changes to their 2021 line-up, with extreme metallers Cradle Of Filth replacing Dimmu Borgir.
Dimmu Borgir, who are unable to make the festival due to restrictions surrounding the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, released the following statement.
“Due to restrictions and uncertainties regarding international travel and logistics, we have to postpone Dimmu Borgir’s performance at Bloodstock until next year. The band is absolutely gutted about this, having to cancel Bloodstock again, but we have already confirmed with Vicky and the Bloodstock team that the band will be back in the UK for the 2022 edition. Stay safe!”
Elsewhere, the festival organisers announced that the additional Wednesday date is set to consist of a headline set from Onslaught, with support from Beholder, Ward XVI, Raised By Owls, and Anakim.
