Download Festival line-up

This year's Download Festival takes place at Donington Park on Friday 11th to Sunday 13th June. AC/DC headline on the Friday, with Them Crooked Vultures, Wolfmother, Bullet For My Valentine, Motorhead, Deftones, Stone Temple Pilots, Volbeat, and Megadeth also confirmed to appear. Tickets with weekend camping cost £170 (no doubt with a booking fee on top... and probably a car-parking charge, too...). The organisers have also banned flags on poles from the arena following a number of complaints last year. The capacity for this year's event will be 111,000, making Download the second-largest festival in the UK, after Glastonbury.
