Evil Scarecrow Lead Latest Line Up Announcement For Bloodstock Festival

Tuesday, 04 May 2021 Written by Laura Johnson

Bloodstock have added 19 more acts to the 2021 line up.

The UK’s largest celebration of heavy music will once again take over Catton Park in Walton-on-Trent, Derbyshire in August, with the addition of an extra day that will make the festival a five-day event.

The 2021 instalment will also see the belated celebration of the festival's 20th anniversary, which was meant to take place in 2020 but could not due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Devin Townsend will headline the Friday main stage, with Judas Priest topping the bill on Sunday with their only European performance of 2021. Due to COVID-related availability issues, Saturday headliner Mercyful Fate have been replaced by German thrash legends Kreator.

The new additions to the line up include Evil Scarcrow (pictured), who will headline the Sophie Lancaster Stage on Sunday. They said:

"So, we haven't played as a band for a year. Not even a practice! We closed and abandoned our rehearsal room. Our van is gathering moss on a driveway. We have two new members who we have never played with. One of them was our main stagehand and we have not replaced that position. Basically, Evil Scarecrow are, in reality, unconscious in stasis, floating through the void of space until we clear the disease-ridden Van Allen radiation belt.  Along came the good ship Bloodstock, who nudged us awake to see if we will come and play with them. "No", we mumble, "No band yet. More sleep". They return with a cup of tea and a bacon sandwich. "It's headlining the Sophie Stage" they whisper. Shit. So, we’ve sprung back into life! We are dusting off our props and may even have a band practice or two. So, if you want to see the most shambolic, unpracticed, unprepared Evil Scarecrow show ever, then join us! We can’t promise our usual super-polished -ahem- performance. But we promise to bring the biggest, messiest, stupidest party yet."

Other new acts include Broken Jaw, Colpocleisis, Devilfire, Grey Stag, Hanowar, The Injester, South of Salem, Son Of Boar, Wired, This Is Endless, Fellowship, Sorceress Of Sin, Frozen In Shadows, Hybridize, Strangle Wire, Words That Burn, Deitus, and Ghosts of Atlantis.
