Now in its fifth year, Bloodstock blazes into 2005 with its first ever outdoor festival. Having already established a successful annual indoor event, the next step for organisers has become to offer a traditional rock music festival, comparable to those regularly seen in Europe (albeit on a smaller scale – initially with a capacity of somewhere between 6,000-10,000), while at the same time capturing the spirit of the original Monsters Of Rock shows which used to take place at Castle Donington during the 1980’s and 1990’s.
