Frontman Nergal said “BLOODSTOCK has a very special place in BEHEMOTH’s heart. They are one of the first major European metal festivals who took risks to position BEHEMOTH as a festival headliner; a game changer for us in the UK! I can’t wait to get back onto the legendary grounds of Catton Park and raise some monumental hell with our legions! Until August!”

The Polish legends have made the most of lockdown having spent the last year writing new material as well as producing one of the stand out livestream events of the lockdown period. Seeing them back in real life will surely be a highlight of next years event.
