Download is one of our favourite rock festivals! The 3-day rock show, located in Donington Park, always hosts the biggest and best bands. And judging by the headliners, next year’s show will only be crazier. The early summer festival has announced it’s three massive headliners and we are stoked! Check out the bands below!
It wouldn’t be Download Festival without a few ferocious metal bands shaking the ground of Donington Park. And you don’t get more ferocious and earth-shaking than metal crew Avenged Sevenfold. A7X is one of those bands that have you hooked after just one show. And we can’t wait to see the quintet shut down Donnington Park with their genre-bending, intense rock tunes.
Guns N’ Roses
Legendary rock crew Guns N’ Roses are known as the kings of wailing riffs and gritty vocals. And although we the weren’t sure of the future of GNR a few times, they have proved time and time again that they are still the same badass rock n roll band who belted out ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine’ back in 87! And we adore them for it! GNR haven’t missed a beat, and their 2016/2017 Not In This Lifetime Tour confirms just how epic the band still is. GNR will be tearing up the stage at Download 2018, and we couldn’t be more excited!
The Price of Darkness is going to grace the masses of Download with his dark, eerie presence and we are living for it! The last time Ozzy Osbourne played Download was in 2016 with Black Sabbath, but the Prince is back and headlining Sunday night as a solo act. So grab your round sunglasses, your black eyeshadow, and your favourite bat friends, because Download 2018 is about to get dark!
So what do the fans think of this first Download Festival announcement? Check out some reactions below.
Ozzy Osbourne & Guns N Roses announced as download headliners? Is this the fucking 80s? Bad bookings.

Avenged Sevenfold for Download? That band remain the only artist who have had a CD ejected from a moving car window by me, due to how shockingly shite it was.
