On the latest recruits, Download promoter Andy Copping said: “This is shaping up to be the most diverse Download yet – a real tableau of the past, present and future of rock and metal.

“You can see that in our headliners – Aerosmith, Linkin Park and Avenged Sevenfold – and in today’s announcement where we combine such renowned acts as Bowling for Soup and Opeth with newer acts like Bury Tomorrow.”
