Earlier this week, Bloodstock Open Air got in on the festival-headliner-announcement game by confirming that King Diamond would be making his UK festival debut as their Friday night headliner for 2013. Now while this is frickin’ awesome all of itself, we were talking about it in the pub over the weekend and realised the sheer lack of King Diamond/Mercyful Fate knowledge in  our immediate circle of friends. Dear readers, we’d be lying if we said we were anything less than shocked and ashamed.

Not wanting to be left behind in the big game of announcing-your-2013-headliners-as-early-as-possbile, today Bloodstock Open Air confirmed that King Diamond will be headlining the Friday night of their festival next year. The King join the previously-announced quartet of Anthrax, Fozzy, Firewind and Accept over 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 a new Merciful Fate t-shirt in time for next August, now would be a good time to cough up some cash.
