Linkin Park To Headline Download 2011
Hot on the heels of last week’s news that System Of A Down are to headline Download 2011, organisers have today announced that Linkin Park will also headline at the 2011 festival, which takes place June 10-12.
Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington said: “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!”
Organisers have also confirmed that Rob Zombie will perform – 16 years since he last played the Donington Park site with his then band White Zombie.
As well as SOAD, it was confirmed last week that US metallers Avenged Sevenfold will play at next year’s Download.
A limited amount of weekend with camping tickets for Download 2011, plus RIP packages, are on sale now from www.downloadfestival.co.uk. This ‘early bird’ offer ends 5pm Monday, December 20, and includes three-day and five-day camping tickets.
Organisers have also confirmed that prices will remain the same for Download 2011 as they were in 2010.
