The biggest news is that the festival is to be expanded to three days; starting on Friday 10th June and finishing on Sunday 12th. Previously the festival has been a two-day weekend affair.
The Friday will be some sort of 'indie' day with Feeder headlining and support from Garbage, The Prodigy, Billy Idol and Weezer.
Saturday is set to be a mini-Ozzfest day, with Sabbath, Velvet Revolver and HIM confirmed, whilst Sunday will be all about the metal, with System Of A Down, Slipknot and Slayer plying their bloody wares.
Tickets are on sale now from the usual sources, expect to shell out £112 or so for the privilege. Additionally, the Download official site, www.downloadfestival.co.uk has a myriad of other ticketing options that include hotels and all in one tent-included camping packages.
