NEWS: More bands added to Bloodstock line-up

WE know y'all are just heading to Bloodstock just to see Norn Iron's By Any Means and Overoth, but to make sure you keep yourselves occupied throughout the event the good people at Bloodstock HQ have added more bands to the already packed line-up.

Savage Messiah have been added to the Ronnie James Dio main stage slot on Saturday - and Foul Body Autopsy are amongst another crowd of bands added to the Jagermeister stage

With everything else going on over the weekend remember that Bloodstock also has a nominated charity, recently announcing its partnership with TEENAGE CANCER TRUST for the fifth year in a row.

Since kicking off a relationship in 2011, over £21,000 has been raised for the charity, with the money going to help the UK’s teenagers & young adults with cancer.

A BOA spokesperson explained: "To celebrate hitting the £20k mark and this special anniversary, this year we’ve set a fundraising target of £12,500 so we need your help to shatter that!

"Once again the charity will have a stall in the market area, where you can purchase Teenage Cancer Trust merchandise and join in the popular ‘T-Shirt Amnesty’ (clear some drawer space and bring your unwanted band t-shirts to donate or swap).  There are also three very special raffle prizes up for grabs.

"On Friday, you could meet headliners Trivium and watch their first three songs side of stage, while on Saturday, Within Temptation offer the same prize.

"On Sunday, one lucky winner could be taking home a black gloss BC Rich Warlock Edge guitar, signed by 2014 Bloodstock headliners, Down. To be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is purchase a raffle ticket for £1 at the charity stand, so stop by, pick up a ticket and be in with a chance of winning."

You see us metallers really can make a difference!
