Also announced today are Feed The Rhino, La Dispute, Lawnmother Deth, Six Hour Sundown, Silent Descent, With One Last Breath, The Union, No Americana, Royal Cartel, Tyla, The Dirty Youth, Yashin, Voodoo Johnson and Sanguine.
Organisers have also confirmed a 5th stage at this year’s Download, with the return of the JägerRock Truck as The Jägermeister Acoustic Stage. After its success over the last few years and back by popular demand, the JägerRock Truck will host exclusive acoustic sets from famous live rock bands across the weekend.
This year at Download, the late Jim Marshall will be honoured by dedicating this year’s Main Stage to ‘the Father of Loud’ and the man responsible for ‘the Sound of Rock’. The Jim Marshall Stage at Download 2012 will play host to some of the biggest bands in rock, including Black Sabbath, Metallica, Soundgarden, Megadeth and many more.
