At Donington Park and running over a 2 day weekend – 31st of May & 1st of June – The Download Festival aims to feature the best rock music spanning the old-school rock of Iron Maiden to the world of Marilyn Manson, through to the red baseball capped Limp Bizkit. The line-up now also features, as previously announced the Deconstruction Tour "bringing a true punk and skate rock element to the festival".
Some slots are still to be filled on the Kerrang!/Radio 1 Stage, but the line-up confirmed so far is:
Saturday, 31st of May
Funeral For A Friend
From Autumn To Ashes Brand New
Sunday 1st of June

The main stage will see already confirmed headliners Iron Maiden making their only UK appearance of the summer, and Limp Bizkit are returning to the UK for their first show in more than two years.

DiScuss: Is over £80 for a weekend camping at *only* a 2 day festival a bit much? Are there too many summer festivals? Is there a festival with a better lineup than this?
