Elsewhere, Winterfylleth, Exhumed and Necrot have all been added to the Sophie Lancaster Stage line-up. 

Bury Tomorrow said of their slot: “We're really excited! Bloodstock is known for showcasing the best bands in the genre, so we're genuinely honoured to be involved in 2020. See you in August!”

Winterfylleth enthuse: “We have been fortunate enough to have been asked back to perform at the festival on a number of occasions since our early days, and it has always felt like coming home when we do.”

Headlined by Devin Townsend (Friday), Behemoth (Saturday) and Judas Priest (Sunday), Bloodstock Open Air takes place at Catton Park in Derbyshire from Thursday 6th to Sunday 9th August 2020.
