System Of A Down To Headline Download
System Of A Down are to headline the 2011 Download Festival, which will take place June 10-12 at Donington Park.
The band, who will be making their comeback after a five-year hiatus, said:
“We are excited to announce that System will be playing some dates together in 2011. We also want to thank you for your loyalty and support, not only to System Of A Down, but to all of our solo efforts as well. We have no master plan of sorts – we are playing these shows simply because we want to play together again as a band.”
It has also been confirmed that US metallers Avenged Sevenfold will perform at next year’s Download.
Live Nation’s Andy Copping said:
“We’ve got loads more to come over the next few months, so watch this space. And make sure you grab your tickets as we are not increasing the price for 2011.”
