French metal monsters Gojira have confirmed that they'll be making their only UK performance of 2010 at Bloodstock Open Air.
After a huge year of touring in the USA with Metallica and Lamb Of God, the group had originally announced that they would be taking time off in 2010, to celebrate their 10 year anniversary.
Joe Duplantier, frontman of Gojira obviously had other ideas. He said: "We're really looking forward to playing the mighty Bloodstock Festival for the first time! It's a great line-up and we cannot wait to kick your ass, England!"
Bloodstock 2010 already has an impressive line-up, with Children Of Bodom and Fear Factory co-headlining the festival, with Obituary, Ross The Boss and Rage also confirmed.
Organisers have confirmed that there is another special headliner to be announced very soon.
Tickets are on sale now priced at £99.95 for an adult weekend camping ticket, £44.95 for a child weekend camping ticket, £30 for a campervan ticket and £10 for a car parking ticket
