GOJIRA tell us “We are excited and honoured to headline BLOODSTOCK festival in 2018. One of our favourite festivals in the world. We had such a great time in 2016 with the BLOODSTOCK crowd and are sure that 2018 will be even better. We are already planning what we can do to make it the most awesome GOJIRA show yet. We can’t wait!”
Meanwhile, NIGHTWISH tell us; “We can’t wait to hit the mighty BLOODSTOCK Festival in 2018! By then we’ll be in full flight on our ‘Decades’ World Tour (a retrospective) so expect an unusual setlist with a bit of nostalgia for the old fans, but some recent epics for the new. We will throw ourselves into it with everything we’ve got so be there!”
