Nightwish take a bow at the end of a concert at The Palais in Melbourne, Australia, in January 2008.

Finnish symphonic power metal band Nightwish have been added to the billing of the United Kingdom's Bloodstock Open Air (BOA) festival.

The annual three day festival will take part through August 15-17. Established in 2005 as a spinoff of the original Bloodstock festival, BOA 2008 also features Dimmu Borgir, Opeth, Soilwork, Iced Earth and Helloween, amongst others.

The event, being held in Derbyshire's Catton Hall, will also feature a stage devoted to unsigned bands.
