In just four weeks time, arguably the “most metal” (whatever that means) of the UK summer festival season takes place: Bloodstock Open Air. To get ourselves in the mood for a weekend of wearing denim vests and drinking mead out of horn, we’ve put together a gigantic Sunday Spotify Slaylist, featuring the best of this year’s line-up.

Not much to add beyond the obvious – Bloodstock Open Air has today confirmed Accept, Fozzy and Firewind for their 2013 festival. The trio join the previously-announced Anthrax on the bill over at Catton Hall, which in 2013 takes place on the weekend of 08-11 August. Early Bird Weekend Tickets are on sale now for the bargain price of £100, so if you want to save a few quid for Bloodstock’s infamous ale bar, now would be a good time to cough up some cash.

When German more-metal-than-all veterans, Accept, came back with their first album in 14 years in 2010, there was plenty of celebrating a spectacular comeback. There was also plenty of commentary about how immensely metal Accept are, to the point it’s become a cliché. What’s been perhaps slightly overlooked by some – and should be no longer – is how brilliant this band actually are.

Oh yes. Hammerfest 3 – headlined by Accept, Entombed and Satyricon – is taking place at Pontin’s in Prestatyn Sands, North Wales between Thursday, 17 March 2011 and Saturday, 19 March 2011. We’ve got four (4) (FOUR) tickets to give away. That means that if you win, you can take three (3) (THREE) friends with you. That’s pretty good, eh?!
