Download Days & Stages Revealed?
Having a little look around the Download official site, we’ve noticed that they might well have given away who this year’s 2nd stage headliners are. There’s also a hint at what days you can expect certain bands to be playing on.
Regard exhibit A:
Obviously, we love a bit of speculation around these parts. We’ve already made our own conclusions that Alexisonfire are going to be part of this year’s bill today but this poster posted on Download’s official website has us stroking our chin even more.
Take a look at the latest Download poster above. It would seem to suggest that the Friday will feature Faith No More headlining the main stage with Korn directly beneath them and Limp Bizkit also part of the main stage proceedings. Saturday could see Slipknot headlining, Marilyn Manson 2nd on the bill and Pendulum 3rd. Classic rock Sunday? Def Leppard and Whitesnake we already knew but ZZ top could be on directly before those two.
Now, check out our incredibly high-tech circling (cheers Gill!). Could this mean that Motley Crue, The Prodigy and Trivium are this year’s 2nd stage headliners on Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively? Perhaps, perhaps not.
We just thought we’d give you half of the thoughts that we have been having at Metal Hammer HQ today.
Download will take place on June 12th – 14th at Donington and will feature sets from Faith No More, Slipknot, Def Leppard, Whitesnake, The Prodigy, Limp Bizkit, Motley Crue, Marilyn Manson, Korn, ZZ Top, Down, Journey and many, many more.
