Bloodstock Reveal Line Up Changes And Additions Including Lawnmower Deth, Conan And Lotus Eater

Thursday, 01 July 2021 Written by Laura Johnson

Bloodstock have made some minor changes 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. Saturday headliner Mercyful Fate have been replaced by thrash legends Kreator, while Cradle Of Filth will step in for Dimmu Borgir, who have postponed their set until 2022. 

COVID-related availability issues also mean Thursday's Sophie Lancaster stage headliner The Night Flight Orchestra have been replaced by Lawnmower Deth, who said:

"We are truly sorry you’re not going to get Night Flight Orchestra. They’re terrific and awfully melodic. Naturally as the B-TEC replacement for them, we sound exactly the same, so your disappointment should be somewhat abated. Just think melodic Swedish hard rock, with balloons. However, the chance to get in a field, well a tent, with you lovely lot and some beer, did we mention beer, is the bar open yet? BLOODSTOCK, we’re coming! At our age, slightly slower, but we’ll be there. Bring beer. And dancing shoes. And beer."

Elsewhere, stepping into Soen's slot on Friday's Sophie stage will be Conan, while replacing Lost Society on Friday's Ronnie James Dio main stage, are Divine Chaos, with Lotus Eater joining the bill instead of Savage Master on Friday. Thrashers Shrapnel step in for Noctem on Friday's Sophie stage, Necronautical will take the place of Blasphemer, and Spectral Darkwave join the line up for Sunday's Jägermeister Stage.
