BLOODSTOCK Launches the 2017 ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ Programme!

bs_m2tmBLOODSTOCK launches the 2017 ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ programme!

BLOODSTOCK’s annual, hugely popular, grass roots-supporting ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ scheme offers unsigned and DIY bands the chance of being part of the BLOODSTOCK festival experience.  Plans for 2017’s are under way and BLOODSTOCK along with our favourite ale, Hobgoblin, are aiming once again to track down the best breaking metal bands across the UK!

Below is the list of participating venues and regions so far (there’s more to come in Europe) – so if you’re in a self-signed or unsigned band and want to try out for a slot on the BLOODSTOCK bill, then get in touch with the promoter near you for details and get yourselves involved!!  One winner from each event will win a slot on the ‘New Blood’ stage, with some lucky runners up also considered.

Email your nearest promoter on the details below to get full details on the local events and throw your hat in the ring.  In August 2017, YOU could be stepping on stage at BLOODSTOCK 2017!
