Avenged Sevenfold will lock and load on the Download Festival main stage with material from 2016's well received album 'The Stage' and peppering their new tracks around classics such as 'After Life,' a slice of melodic metal heaven, or the poignant, 'So Far Away' will keep the masses at the main stage as if the Donington turf is draped in velcro.
The impact of Ozzy Osbourne on rock and metal simply cannot be understated or undermined. He isn't just the man. He is almost the only man. The Prince of Darkness and the King maker of the business.

Black Stone Cherry are the perfect festival band. A band with a stacked back catalogue of sing-a-long favourites, a band that can drift from foot-stomping, partner-swinging, hair flinging, frenetic riffs to songs which slow the pace down to a gentle sway with a tear in your eye and make you want to call home.
