Gearing up for 2021 after this year’s unfortunate but unavoidable cancellation, Bloodstock Open Air Festival have confirmed that Mercyful Fate will headline the main stage on Saturday.
They will replace Behemoth, who were set to headline the main stage this year but unfortunately cannot proceed with doing so next year.
Reforming in 2019 after a lengthy hiatus, the King Diamond fronted black metal icons will also be joined Dimmu Borgir, who’ve also been named as their subheadliner.
Also headlining the main stage at Bloodstock Open Air Festival 2021 will be Devin Townsend and Judas Priest.

Next year’s Bloodstock Open Air Festival will take place on August 11th-15th 2021 at Catton Park, Derbyshire.
