Established in 2001, Bloodstock has progressed over the years from its humble beginnings as a one day event at the festivals spiritual home of the Derby Assembly Rooms to what we have today, a three day full on metal extravaganza held in the grounds of Catton Hall, Walton-on-Trent, Derbyshire.

Now boasting the best part of 100 bands across four stages, showcasing the best in metal from our UK Underground to top International acts along with comedy, karaoke, a mini fairground, the Serpents Lair VIP bar (a fest within a fest for ale, cider and perry drinkers!) and more all wrapped up within the camaraderie and atmosphere that truly sets us apart from the rest and there you have it - Bloodstock Open Air!
