SIX NEW NAMES ADDED TO DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL LINE UP 2012
First up, Killswitch Engage are coming back to Download in 2012, having stepped in at the last minute to play the festival in 2010. With Jesse Leach back as the band’s lead singer, we can’t wait to welcome the band back to Donington in June.
Also on the bill are NOFX, one of the most dedicated and prolific touring bands on the live circuit, and yet another incredible addition to the Download 2012 bill. Black Veil Brides will be returning in 2012, having blown us away with a phenomenal set last year. The band continue to gain in popularity, and their performance this year is promising to be even more of a spectacle than last time.
Finnish symphonic metallers Nightwish have been confirmed, and will be playing tracks from their awesome 14-year-long career, including songs from their latest record Imaginaerum.
Oh yeah, and the ferocious Shinedown will also be ripping it at Donington in 2012 too, blasting out tracks from their new album Amaryllis as well as a bunch of their classics as well.
Rounding off this announcement are Swedish band Opeth!
The big news today is that day tickets for Download Festival will be sale tomorrow morning (February 17) at 9.00am!
