Opeth, Black Label Society and Bowling For Soup top the latest list of bands added to the bill for the 2014 Download festival.
They’re among the acts who’ll perform at Donington Park on the weekend of June 13-15 under festival headliners Aerosmith, Linkin Park and Avenged Sevenfold.
Pop-punk legends Bowling For Soup will celebrate their 20th birthday at Donington. Lead singer Jaret Reddick said: “We are really stoked to be coming back to Download this year. First and foremost, our little band turns 20 this June, so what better way to celebrate! Music, beer and Portaloos! Also, it’s a great opportunity to show our amazing UK fans that, although we don’t have plans to tour any time soon, they will still get to see our pretty faces once in a while. Can. Not. Wait!”
There are several more additions to the bill. They are: Flogging Molly, Bad Religion, Phil H. Anselmo & The Illegals, The BossHoss, Skid Row, Tesla, Bury Tomorrow, Danger Danger, Powerman 5000, Huntress, The Graveltones and Anti-Mortem.
On his latest recruits, Download promoter Andy Copping said: “This is shaping up to be the most diverse Download yet – a real tableau of the past, present and future of rock and metal. You can see that in our headliners – Aerosmith, Linkin Park and Avenged Sevenfold – and in today’s announcement where we combine such renowned acts as Bowling for Soup and Opeth with newer acts like Bury Tomorrow.”
