Lamb Of God Confirmed as headliners for Bloodstock 2022

Headlining on the Ronnie James Dio main stage will be mighty groove metal overlords, LAMB OF GOD!

It’s been way too long since we’ve rocked the festivals of Merry Olde – what better way to announce our return than a headliner slot at BLOODSTOCK? Until then, pack your wellies and stay safe England – LAMB OF GOD (and Roger Brilliant) will see you summer 2022!

Saturday’s main stage headliner will be the previously announced, King Diamond-fronted, heavy metal icons MERCYFUL FATE, who roll over a year after global issues prevented their appearance at this year’s festival. The band tell us; “MERCYFUL FATE comes to BLOODSTOCK…this will be a dangerous meeting you don’t want to miss!

This time we are going to bring the Devil himself!
