Queens of the Stone Age and The Gaslight Anthem are just two of the bands set to take to the stage at Download Festival next year.
Many fans are expected to descend on cheap hotels around the Midlands for the festival which takes place at Donington Park with 30 Seconds to Mars, Motorhead and HIM also announced as playing.
It is due to take place for two days from Friday, June 14th with these groups all set to join the bill alongside headliners Slipknot, Rammstein and Iron Maiden while glam rock legends Kiss are also rumoured to be appearing.
Slipknot’s last set at the festival was described by organiser Andy Copping as “one of the best headline sets” ever to take place there, adding that he was “looking forward to seeing how they'll top the last one”.
Further announcements as to who will fill the rest of the bill are expected soon while tickets are already available.
