It's getting closer, and more and more cool shit is coming out of the Download camp. Got a smartphone? You need this app. Want more names? WE GOT 'EM!
Download Festival is only SIX WEEKS away now (we still haven't bought wellies, FYI) and they made a few more announcements last night.
First up: The Download App. If you're heading to the fest this year, trust us, you NEED this on your phone. It'll keep you up to date with all the news and highlights over the weekend, plus it features a comprehensive timetable for who's playing when. Want it? Then search for Download in your relevant app store now!
Technology's al well and good, but how about some more names? GOOD! Because the fest have also confirmed the return of the Jägermeister Acoustic Stage, with the following names all stripping back on the bright orange truck for your pleasure:
Bowling For Soup
PLUS, the following bands will be performing on the Jägermeister Acoustic Stage:
The Mercy House
New City Kings
Elsewhere, Rival Sons also join the line-up and will take to the Zippo Encore Stage on Friday. PLUS I Am Fire and Bloody Hammers have also been added to the bill.
They join headliners Avenged Sevenfold, Linkin Park and Aerosmith who are all set to rain hell in Donington across the weekend of June 13 - 15, along with all the names on the poster above. For tickets and travel info and all that stuff, head over to www.downloadfestival.co.uk
