(Classic Rock) Download bosses have confirmed that Down have removed themselves form the bill for this year's festival. On Thursday, French festival Hellfest announced that Phil Anselmo had informed them the band would not play any European festivals and now organisers of the Donington event have confirmed Down are off the bill for 2016.

In a statement, Download bosses say: "Down have cancelled all of their remaining European tour dates and therefore will no longer be playing Download festival 2016."

It comes after Anselmo's "white power" outburst at the Dimebash event in January. Following the incident, which was captured on film and uploaded to YouTube, Anselmo originally claimed he was making a joking reference to drinking white wine backstage, but he later offered both a video and a written apology.
