Trivium have been announced as the final headline act for the Bloodstock Open Air festival in 2015.
The band will close out the Friday night of the UK metal festival on the main stage, with frontman Matt Heafy clearly enthusiastic about the news:
“The UK is where the world first took notice of Trivum,” he says. “And to pay true homage to that, Trivum will be playing the most metal festival that exists in the UK: Bloodstock! We are thrilled beyond words to celebrate our first time at Bloodstock with the the UK’s metal elite.”
Also announced for the Friday night are Sabaton, filling the ‘Special Guest’ slot, and Agalloch who will play at the festival on the Sunday.
Says Sabaton bassist Par Sundstrom: “We just had a kick-ass tour in the UK with lots of sold-out shows. With this fresh in our mind, we cannot wait to return to these shores again and this time we can actually bring our full production to Bloodstock! It will be the first time we have done a show like this at a British festival.”
Bloodstock takes place 6th-9th August, 2015 at Catton Park, Derbyshire. Tickets are available now.
