The Atlanta heavy-metal kings have been confirmed to be the closing headliner on Saturday night at Bloodstock Festival. This will be their debut performance at the festival and their first UK show since having to cancel their summer dates including appearances at Reading and Leeds festival due to a “personal family matter”.
Mastodon’s vocalist and bassist Troy Sanders said, “Since day one, nobody has embraced Mastodon better than the UK. Thank you for inviting us to our first festival headlining slot at Bloodstock 2016! We will not disappoint!”
With the second headliner for the heavy metal festival set to be announced this week, the excitement grows stronger for the event, which takes place August 11-14 at Catton Park in Derbyshire.
