Almost 50 Bands Added To Download Festival
Along with Papa Roach, who leaked the news of their appearance last month, the stack of new names includes Europe, Skin, Uriah Heep and Newsted.
Europe will return to make up for their cancelled set last year after heavy rain meant their gear arrived on time but the band didn't. Frontman Joey Tempest said at the time: "The flight was two-hour delayed from Sweden so the guys were very late. Then we hit traffic on the way here. It was very close but in the end we had to postpone. We didn't want to go on and play one or two songs – we wanted to play a good set."
They'll join headliners Iron Maiden, Rammstein and Slipknot at the hallowed Leicestershire location for the 11th edition of the event that replaced Monsters Of Rock in 2003. Check out the lineup
