If the line-up for this year’s epic Download Festival wasn’t eye-poppingly outstanding already, they’ve only gone and announced 17 more awesome bands.
Headlining the Avalanche Stage on Saturday, are super-group Simple Creatures, featuring Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 and Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low. This is a UK festival exclusive. They had this to say about their appearance: “An evening of Trash-Pop reverie awaits you at Download Fest. There will be Creatures. They will be Simple. There will be singing and dancing in a big tent. What more could you possibly want?”
