Download Festival announces 14 new bands; pub talk reveals 1 more?

About half of those bands will be playing on The Red Bull Bedroom Jam Stage (aka The Tiny Shitty Fourth Stage), which is hardly surprising considering most of them are A) tiny, and B) shitty.

Apparently The Plight are confirmed for the festival as well. We got that little tidbit in a pub last weekend though when we were a fair few pints in, rather than cribbing it off a press release, so who knows if that’s legit or not?
