In what organisers are calling their biggest year to date, a further 13 acts have been added to this year’s stellar line-up including Refused, Kids in Glass Houses, Lower Than Atlantis, Four Year Strong and many more…
Set to show crowds the shape of punk to come, Swedish band Refused will make their exclusive UK festival appearance at Download. Earlier this year, the band announced their long awaited reunion – this is one comeback show you do NOT want to miss!
Additionally, hardcore punk rockers Gallows return to Donington for our 10th year with their new line-up (including front man Wade McNeil, former Alexisonfire) and a new EP. Kids in Glass Houses will return following the success of their third studio album Gold Blood, released last year. Alternative Brit rockers Lower than Atlantis also join the bill for what’s set to be the ultimate 10th birthday celebration. Bringing the hardcore pop punk, American natives Four Year Strong are joining the line-up with last year’s tour supports and nu metal Brits Don Broco.
Hailing from across the pond, electronic producer Porter Robinson has also been added, alongside Riverside rapper T. Mills. Other new additions include the likes of theatrical rock troupe Fearless Vampire Killers, female-fronted Kobra & The Lotus, German power metallers Edguy and American blues rock band Rival Sons, fresh from their UK support tour with Black Stone Cherry. Sheffield superstars Black Spiders also return to Donington, following their Download debut in 2009.
