A dozen new names have been announced for Download Festival 2009, stretching from the pants-crappingly exciting to the…err…pants-crappingly shitty. Oh.
Joining the line-up at Donington Park will be the Thrash Hits-favoured Bring Me The Horizon, Irish AC/DC support The Answer, the meat-loving Fightstar, post-Darkness survivors Stone Gods, Staind, the Corey Taylor-produced Facecage, the punctuation-abusing Go:Audio, the bafflingly-popular Shinedown, Static-X and their incredible haircuts, London rockers Auger Bane, Danish rockabilly metallers Volbeat, and some further nu-metal revivalism in the form of Sevendust.
Some interesting names in there…but are they enough to convinced you that Download should be your festival of choice this summer?
Tickets for Download Festival 2009 are on sale now from £135 – once again, the festival takes place at Donington Park, from June 12-14.
