Emotions ran high as one of the heaviest metal festivals returned to our fields with Bloodstock. In midst of panic and disruption caused by COVID, we were unsure about whether music would stir itself back into a frenzy come the summer, but it seems the festivals are coming back once again. We will see the likes of Skindred, KREATOR and Judas Priest renter our halls of darkness onto the fields of Catton Park in Derbyshire this weekend.
With Midlands counterpart of Download, hosting a smaller pilot version of their original mass festival, it sees a major heavy metal festival return in major fashion – full size scale with all the trimmings.
For me, I won’t be careening into festivals too soon since the pandemic, but I’m excited for lost of music fanatics and festival goers, and I’m certainly thrilled to see the many photos and videos that will come after it.
