Slayer, Anthrax, Gojira. Bloodstock Open Air is already bursting with win, but can now add to its ranks another fine name.
In the end, we just couldn’t resist Adam’s bittersweet dark Pierrot, resplendent with the tragedy of lost ice-cream and indulgent joy. Cry, laugh, scream? We just don’t know. We’re lost, confused, torn between a dichotomy of conflicting emotions. Which is pretty apt.
Adam, the winning artist, is less ambivalent:
‘I’m going to rock so hard that weekend, the pope will make an emergency visit to exorcise the whole event! Bring on Bloodstock!’
Bloodstock Festival runs from August 8th – 11th at Walton on Trent, Derbyshire. See the Bloodstock webpage for details.
