BLOODSTOCK announces after-hours Sophie Stage fun!

Festival Crowd Header

With BLOODSTOCK just three weeks away, the festival goblins have been hard at work locking in all the party fun for your annual metal weekender.

Once the bands are done each day, the after-hours entertainment in the big top Sophie Stage borders on legendary, so be sure to rock up to Catton Park early on Thursday 7th, pitch your tent and get your beer on in time for the evening’s proceedings.

On Thursday night from 10.30pm, the Warm Up Party will be in full swing, running through ‘til 3am.  Come on out, hear the best metal tracks from the house DJs, meet your fellow Bloodstockers and make new friends for the weekend.

On Friday, the Sophie Stage features Live Band Karaoke!  Do you think you’re the next Dio or Doro?  Get up on stage with the house band and show Bloodstock what you’ve got!  They play the song and you belt out the words, which will be up on the screens if you need ‘em, just like real karaoke.  Come to the Sophie stage during the day and check out what tracks you could sing from the list available, then be back to register your name and chosen song with the stage crew when the fun happens between 10.30 and midnight.  The heavy metal continues through to 3am with BLOODSTOCK’s very own ‘house’ 4 DJs of the Apocalypse.

Saturday’s fun is BLOODSTOCK’s Got Talent!  Have you got a musical skill that you want to show off to thousands of metal fans?!  With a full band rig on stage, maybe you want to get up and show off drum skills like Gene Hoglan, bass licks like Cliff Burton or solo away like you’re Dave Mustaine!  The crowd will get to vote by throwing their metal horns aloft in support (or will you get the Horn of Doom and have to leave the stage)?!  Come by and win prizes from your BLOODSTOCK’s Got Talent team!  When the fun is done, the 4DJs of the Apocalypse will take you through to 3am with metal classics, Hellfire performances, dancers and guest DJs.

Sunday sees the BLOODSTOCK Farewell Party running to 3am, so get those last drinks drunk with your new friends and vow to meet again next year to do it all over again!
