Download Festival Announce Lemmy Stage and 36 More Bands

(Classic Rock) Another 36 bands have been added to the bill for this year's Download festival. Among the latest confirmed acts are Jane's Addiction, NOFX, Sixx:AM, Alien Ant Farm and Amon Amarth.

They'll join headliners Rammstein, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and many others at Donington Park on the weekend of June 10-12. The event has also revealed plans for a tribute to late Motorhead icon Lemmy Kilmister, who passed away at his Los Angeles home on December 28 just four days after his 70th birthday.

Organizers Live Nation say: "Whilst we're saddened to say Motorhead will no longer be performing at this year's Download Festival, we will honour a true rock'n'roll icon who inspired so many others on the bill, Lemmy Kilmister." Read more here.
