Linkin Park to headline Download

By | Published on Tuesday 7 December 2010

Following the announcement that the newly reformed System Of A Down will headline next year’s Download Festival, Linkin Park have been confirmed as the second band to top the bill.

The band’s frontman Chester Bennington told CMU: “We are very excited to be playing Download again next year. It’s one of the best festivals in the world and it’s always an honour to play in front of such a great crowd. We can’t wait!”

Live Nation VP of Promotions Andy Copping added: “It’s great to have Linkin Park back at Download next year. They’ve always put on a great show and following the success of their recent sold out UK tour, it was essential to have them at Download, where they will deliver their full-on live show”.

Musician and film maker Rob Zombie will also perform, sixteen years since he last performed at Donington with his former band White Zombie.
