Bloodstock Festival announced yesterday evening (Saturday, August 12th) Gojira and Nightwise as headliners for 2018! 


After their most successful festival to date in 2017 and first ever weekend sell-out at a capacity 15,000 tickets, BLOODSTOCK is thrilled to announce GOJIRA and NIGHTWISH as its first headliners for 2018’s event which will take place at Catton Park from 9th-12th August.


GOJIRA tell us “We are excited and honoured to headline BLOODSTOCK festival in 2018. One of our favourite festivals in the world. We had such a great time in 2016 with the BLOODSTOCK crowd and are sure that 2018 will be even better. We are already planning what we can do to make it the most awesome GOJIRA show yet. We can’t wait!

Meanwhile, NIGHTWISH tell us; “We can’t wait to hit the mighty BLOODSTOCK Festival in 2018! By then we’ll be in full flight on our ‘Decades’ World Tour (a retrospective) so expect an unusual set list with a bit of nostalgia for the old fans, but some recent epics for the new fans also. We will throw ourselves into it with everything we’ve got so be there!


The bands were revealed at the festival this weekend, on the big screens at the Ronnie James Dio main stage. See the video reveals below;

Early Bird tickets are available now at this location, priced £125 plus booking fee. VIP tickets will be available from 1st September.
