Bloodstock 2016: Patchwatch photo gallery
The very best of Bloodstock's denim and leather... well, just denim. And patches.
There are two things every discerning metal fan needs: the ability to withstand loud noises for hours at a time and a patch jacket. Okay you might not need the second one, but it's the custom uniform for every defender of the faith, and Bloodstock had its fair share. Despite the warm weather across the weekend at Catton Hall, dedicated headbangers were wearing their patchwork denim with pride while guzzling a range of ales and worshipping at the altar of metal.
Here are a selection of the best patches we saw at Bloodstock 2016.
