Iron Maiden To Headline Download Festivals
The homecoming will mark the band's only UK appearance of 2016 as they tour the world in support of "The Book Of Souls." Frontman Bruce Dickinson had this to say, "Download is a very special place for us.
"Not just because it's always great to play on home turf but because there's a truly unique vibe there, it's the very heart of England and of metal, so a fitting place for Iron Maiden.
"The crowd is always fiercely passionate and the whole band feeds off that famous Donington energy. We aim to deliver a really memorable show for our fans to close the 2016 Festival. Although this is our sixth time headlining at Castle Donington, it's the first time we've been able to land Ed Force One right on the doorstep of the festival site." Read more here.
