This year Bloodstock welcomes a brand new charity partner. YoungMinds organisation work tirelessly to support young people’s mental health across the UK. ‘YoungMinds’ will benefit from our guest list donation scheme and have a stand in the arena for you to drop by, drop a quid in their collection box and find out about their work.
Bloodstock’s first phase of club nights have started! More will be added for June/July, so don’t despair if your local town’s rock club isn’t listed yet. Get along to one of the following events, check out some tunes from BLOODSTOCK bands old and new, and be in with the chance of winning weekend tickets or related giveaways. There are fun ways to win – previous events have seen the likes of bucking broncos, endurance tests, and air guitar-offs! Check your local club for details, as dates are subject to change.
