Mr. Big, Buckcherry And Alice Cooper Among Artists Added To Download Festival
January 24, 2011
It’s the announcement you’ve all been waiting for – the Download Festival have just gone and added 20 more bands to the line up!
From chief heavyweights and major players of the international rock scene, classic rock heroes, acclaimed rock legends and innovators to the latest hotly tipped acts emerging onto the scene, Download 2011 is set to make ears ring, voices hoarse and legs very weary this summer.
UK Top 5 charting modern metallers Bullet For My Valentine, critically acclaimed New Jersey boys Gaslight Anthem, Australian drum ‘n bass / rock dynamos Pendulum and US classic rockers Alter Bridge have all been added to the bill.
Legends of the classic rock fold will be back on the scene at Download this year – the Thin Lizzy boys are back in town, LA glam-rock stars Buckcherry return, as well as American ‘jam band’ Clutch, Brit rockers FM and Mr. Big.
The list goes on! Master of theatre and horror Alice Cooper will be at Download in 2011, along with Korn, Danzig, The Cult, GWAR and Masters Of Reality.
As if that wasn’t enough, we’ve also added Black Veil Brides, The Damned Things, Escape The Fate, Hollywood Undead and Kerrang! Magazine’s ‘Best British Newcomer’ 2010 award winners Rise To Remain.
Truly something for everyone!
These acts join headliners System Of A Down and Linkin Park, plus Avenged Sevenfold and Rob Zombie.
