The final headliner for Download Festival 2015 has been revealed... and look who else is joining them!



Shock rock legends KISS have been confirmed as the third and final headliner for Download Festival 2015.

Singer Paul Stanley has said: "Download has become a tradition of stature that separates the pretenders from the contenders and the champs from the chimps. It will be an honour to take our turf and leave no doubt why we wear the crown."

Meanwhile, Mötley Crüe will play directly beneath them on the main stage in what will be their last ever UK festival performance ahead of their upcoming split in 2016. Slash featuring Myles Kennedy + The Conspirators will also grace the main stage, while Enter Shikari will headline the second stage.

"The thing I love more than anything is playing outside, at night," says Enter Shikari's Rou Reynolds. "We thank Download for the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the great outdoors and engulf and deluge festival-goers with our noise. It is an honour to be closing the night and because of this we will bring with us illuminations. Do attend."

The above four bands join the likes of Slipknot, Judas Priest, Five Finger Death Punch and Black Stone Cherry who have been confirmed for the Friday, and Muse, Faith No More, A Day To Remember and Marilyn Manson who play on the Saturday.

Download 2015 is scheduled to take place across the weekend of 12 - 14 June, 2015, at Donington Park. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Thursday, November 20 from www.downloadfestival.co.uk and prices start at £170 for the weekend.
