Dimmu Borgir Pull Out Of Bloodstock Festival Due To Illness

Wednesday, 07 August 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Dimmu Borgir have pulled out of this year's Bloodstock festival.

The Norwegian metallers have cited circumstances beyond their control as the cause of their cancellation, with Queensryche moving up into the Sunday special guest slot, following Batushaka who join the line up as third on the bill. 

"Dimmu Borgir regrets to inform you that we have to cancel our appearance at this year's Bloodstock due to illness. The doctors have ordered full rest for a minimum of one week, and instructed that performing a show this weekend would increase the situation. We are truly sorry about this, as we had been looking forward enormously to returning to Bloodstock this year. Enjoy the festival, we will see you again soon!"

The UK’s largest celebration of heavy music will once again take over Catton Park in Walton-on-Trent, Derbyshire, with Australian metalcore mob Parkway Drive set to top Saturday's bill, Sabaton due to play their only UK show of the year when they headline the Friday night, and German rock icons Scorpions closing the Sunday. Head below for the full line up to date.

What? A multi-day festival that hosts some of the heaviest acts the rock and metal scene has to offer.

Where? Catton Park at Walton on Trent in Derbyshire.

When? August 8-11.

Who? Batushaka have joined the bill to make up for Dimmu Borgir cancelling, and the Wildhearts have stepped in to replace Code Orange, while Lotus Eater were added to the bill after Shvpes were forced to cancel their performance.
