It’s been a long time coming but it’s finally here, the next set of bands announced for Download 2018!

Unsurprisingly we’re seeing Marilyn Manson on the bill who put on a hell of a show last time he played the festival. Manson is also joined by returning band BabyMetal who, like them or hate them, put on a great show. I would like to see a hint of a new album from BabyMetal before the Download festival hits, but I’m not holding my breath.

For me the line-up so far is difficult to get excited about. Saying that i’m sure a lot of people will be happy to see Guns n Roses and Ozzy in the headline slots.

There are many more bands to be announced and I suppose we’ll just have to wait and see who else will be gracing the Download stages, although I would very surprised if we didn’t see Black Label Society and Bring Me The Horizon somewhere on the bill.
