BLOODSTOCK FANCY DRESS THEME REVEALED
SATURDAY NIGHT GOBLINS, TROLLS & DEMONS PARTY
With the most hard-hitting line up any UK festival can boast, BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR gives UK metal heads the best opportunity to catch dozens of exclusive appearances from the likes of headliners BEHEMOTH, MACHINE HEAD & ALICE COOPER, international heavyweights such as DIMMU BORGIR, TESTAMENT, WATAIN, HATEBREED, ICED EARTH, CROWBAR, NILE & SEPULTURA as well as home grown heroes ORANGE GOBLIN, PARADISE LOST, EVILE, ANAAL NATHRAKH and many, many more.
However it’s not just about all the awesome bands – and comedy, fairground rides, metal market stalls and other attractions – on offer. For once the headliners have set off their last firework and finished the final encore, it’s time for the REAL party to start.
This year’s fancy dress theme – inspired by HOBGOBLIN who support The BLOODSTOCK ARMS Real Ale bar and our very own Metal 2 The Masses – is GOBLINS, DEMONSand TROLLS. After MACHINE HEAD’s historic set on Saturday night, it’s time to get spooky, ugly and evil, to party the night away, as well as win one of three great prizes on offer. There’s also the small matter of some serious fun-times, with the 4 DJs of The Apocalypse and the infamous metal karaoke to entertain the morbid masses til the early hours.
The first prize for the most gloriously dressed is a pair of weekend tickets for next year’s festival, as well as a £100 cash prize. Second prize is £50 cash and a BLOODSTOCKgoody bag, with the bronze medal earning you a goody bag.
Whether you’re a Goblin from middle earth, Errormon, the Nibenay Basin, the Green Goblin of New York or even Wychwood’s own Hobgoblin, Abaddon, Beelzebub, Mephistopheles or some other nefarious Demon or just an ugly, hairy Troll, there’s ample opportunity to get creative and take home the grand prize.
What’s more, anyone who purchases a weekend ticket between now and the 31st July (including anyone who has already purchased a ticket), will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win one of 25 pairs of tickets for BLOODSTOCK 2013 – for which one awesome headliner has already been confirmed.
Don’t forget – headliners MACHINE HEAD are letting fans pick five songs from Burn My Eyes – head to http://www.facebook.com/Bloodstock now to cast your vote.
