The Download Music Festival is an annual UK based festival that is held in Donington Park in Leicestershire since 2003. The festival has just announced its three headliners for the June 12th-14th event. Metal, alternative rock and punk are the primary genres that are focused on at Download and this can be seen in the three solid headliner choices of Slipknot, Muse and KISS.
This will be Slipknots third time headlining the event and will be English stadium rock band Muse’s first time ever headlining. Face paint wearing rock legends KISS, will close out the festival on Sunday along with Motley Crue who will be performing their last ever UK festival.
Other line-up highlights include seasoned metal veterans Judas Priest, California rockers Faith No More and A Day To Remember. While some of the acts have been met with less then positive feedback you can be sure that the popular rock event will still sell out. Tickets will go on sale this Thursday and can be purchased on the festival home page.
