Hobgoblin is excited to unveil its exciting new partnership with Bloodstock Open Air Festival. The collaboration sees both parties teaming up to bring METAL 2 THE MASSES at Bloodstock 2013, offering breaking bands the chance to perform on the Newblood Stage.

Fear not the Mayan prophesy.

Early bird tickets for Bloodstock are now on sale. Now in collaboration with Hobgoblin beer! Imagine a festival where for once the beer tent is not selling windy tasteless lager.

Put the tix on the credit card, and if the prophesy does turn out to be true… it’s a  win-win!


Hobgoblin is excited to unveil its exciting new partnership with Bloodstock Open Air Festival. The collaboration sees both parties teaming up to bring METAL 2 THE MASSES at Bloodstock 2013, offering breaking bands the chance to perform on the Newblood Stage.

The road show, aptly titled ‘Hobgoblin presents Bloodstock’s METAL 2 THE MASSES’ will be visiting a host of UK and European venues to seek out the best new acts to grace the stage at Bloodstock Open Air 2013.  Bands will also be in with a chance of playing a number of established European festivals in 2014, along with a wealth of additional prizes.

In addition to this, as part of its exclusive sponsorship deal, Hobgoblin will be opening up the search worldwide via Wychwood.co.uk, inviting acts to submit their videos online from November 2012.  The contest will be mirrored on promotional packs of Hobgoblin from January 2013, where fans can vote for their favourite act, with the winner bagging the coveted slot on the Newblood stage.  In exchange for their vote, drinkers also win the chance to take home a whole host of music-related prizes via an ‘instant win’ competition.

Chris Keating, Wychwood’s Marketing Manager said: “Hobgoblin has been the official beer of Bloodstock for the last few years and what better way to intensify the brand’s long running association with music than by sponsoring METAL 2 THE MASSES?  This competition will cement Hobgoblin’s place amongst metal fans and will give fans a chance to play what is arguably, the best metal festival in the UK, as well as be seen by some of the biggest names in the industry, which really is a chance of a lifetime.”

Bloodstock’s METAL 2 THE MASSES competition will be open to all genres of rock & metal, so if you’re in a speed, thrash, death, doom, folk, battle, gothic, groove, metalcore, industrial, neo-classical, Nu, post, power, progressive, sludge, stoner, alternative, extreme, symphonic, Viking metal or hard rock act, then get ready to bring the noise!

Adam Gregory says “Here at Bloodstock HQ, we are really excited and proud to have Hobgoblin supporting not just Bloodstock but more importantly our fans and the breaking music scene here in the UK for our genre of music. Our joint collaboration really does go to show how the music scene is developing here in the UK and how important both Bloodstock and Hobgoblin feel supporting this scene really is. 2013 will represent a great year for unsigned music in our country and we are sure we will unearth some more great talent.”
