Bloodstock announces Sabaton as Friday Night Headliner for 2019 Jack Press September 20, 2018 Gigs, News, Uncategorized 221 As the days get shorter, the nights colder, and the temptation to hide between the covers of your bed becomes maddeningly tough; it’s becoming clearer and clearer that festival season is over. Don’t worry though, Britain’s premier extreme metal festival Bloodstock Open Air are busy stoking the flames of next year’s fire, having announced the first headliner for their 2019 edition. Sweden’s power metal purveyors Sabaton will headline the Ronnie James Dio stage on the Friday night of Bloodstock Open Air, which takes place at its prestigious home of Catton Park. Sabaton have climbed the Bloodstock ranks over the years, having first played the festival way back in 2009 in the early hours of the afternoon for a mere half hour, and ten years on they’re returning, full production – tanks, and all – to headline conquer. If you’re a lover of their time-warping historical militant metal, you’ll wanna grab yourself a ticket as it’ll be their only UK appearance in 2019.
