Killswitch Engage, Shinedown, Black Veil Brides, Nofx, Opeth and Nightwish now confirmed

Download Festival are set to celebrate their 10th anniversary this year, and have announced that day tickets will be available to purchase from 9am Friday 17 February priced at £75 per day.

Organisers have now confirmed that American metalcore band Killswitch Engage, the multi-million selling Shinedown, last year’s biggest rock newcomers Black Veil Brides, DIY punk masters NOFX, epic progressive metallers Opeth and symphonic Scandinavians Nightwish have been added to this year’s Download.

“This year’s Download is going from strength to strength and the line up is shaping up nicely. We’ve had a phenomenal reaction to weekend tickets, and have decided to go on sale with day tickets early. Happy days!”
Download promoter Andy Copping
With a line up including headliners The Prodigy (Friday 8 June), Metallica (Saturday 9 June) and Black Sabbath (Sunday 10 June), plus an array of  acts such as Slash, Biffy Clyro, Steel Panther, Soundgarden, Lamb of God and You Me At Six, Download seems to be shaping up nicely.  
This year’s Download will also see the debut of the RIP Metal Hotel, the first of its kind indoor ‘pop up’ hotel located on the festival site, a mere hop skip and a jump to the main arena. Each room will have two beds, thermostatic climate control, an en-suite wet room with toilet, basin and shower, storage space, a flat screen TV, and secure card entry. Not only that, all rooms will be serviced with with quality linen, towels and toiletries by dedicated Metal Hotel personnel, as well as offering continental breakfast, providing a truly luxury experience to coincide with the festival’s 10th anniversary celebrations.
