Sunday night at Bloodstock will be Megadeth's first appearance at the festival at Catton Park, Derbyshire. The thrash metallers will close the festival in August 2014.

Their 14th studio album, Super Collider, was released in June and saw frontman Dave 'MegaDave' Mustaine reunited with Chris Broderick, David Ellefson and Shawn Drover.

2014 will mark the 20th anniversary of 'Youthanasia', Megadeth's highest-charting album so far. Dave Mustaine has said, "We are celebrating that by headlining the Bloodstock Festival in the glorious UK. Every year Megadeth and our UK fans get closer and celebrate another year of metal greatness together... the best is yet to come."

It has already been announced that Down will top the bill on Friday night at the festival, with Emperor taking the stage stage as the final act for Saturday. Catch them both at Bloodstock, which will be the only UK appearance for the bands.

Other acts revealed so far include Flotsam and Jetsam, Decapitated and Saxon.

Bloodstock Festival was recently awarded 'Best Festival (under 15K capacity)' at the Live UK Music Business Awards. Early bird tickets for the 2014 festival are already on sale, with all tickets expected to sell out.
