Machine Head to headline Bloodstock 2012 – ticket details

Metal titans join Alice Cooper and Behemoth in headlining the Derbyshire bash

Machine Head have been confirmed to headline this summer’s Bloodstock Open Air festival.

The metal titans, who released their latest album ‘Unto The Locust’ last year, will headline the festival alongside Alice Cooper and Behemouth later this summer.

The event takes place at Catton Hall in Derbyshire and runs from August 9-12. Also on the bill for the event are Paradise Lost, Hatebreed, Anvil, Grand Magus, Dimmu Borgir, Evile and a whole host of others.

Machine Head’s set will have a special twist, as it marks the 20th anniversary of their first ever live performance at a house party. To celebrate this, ticket holders will be given the opportunity to vote for the five songs from the thrash band’s debut album ‘Burn My Eyes’ that they most want to hear, which will then all be included in the set.
