Download Festival announces Bring Me The Horizon, Metallica, SlipKnot & more!

Download Festival will take place between 8th – 11th June 2023 at the hallowed grounds of Castle Donington. As Download celebrates its 20th year a 4-night special is set for 2023.

Metallica are set to headline both the Thursday and the Saturday of the festival! The band commented: “We are next-level honoured to once again come back and partake in the Download shenanigans on the hallowed grounds of Castle Donington, which has an unparalleled place in rock history. On top of that, to be able to share our double show format with two completely unique sets with no repeat songs for the first time ever in the U.K is way fuckin’ cool. Bring it on!!”

Bring Me the Horizon will headline the Friday night, frontman Oli Sykes says: “Download Festival was one of the first festivals I ever attended as a punter. It was our first amazing festival experience to play as a band, and now the fact that we are headlining such a prestigious event blows my mind. We can’t wait to bring a whole new sound and show for the Download audience.”

SlipKnot will headline the Sunday, Slipknot turntablist Sid Wilson says: “Download Festival! So many great memories, one of the most amazing crowds to play in front of, always an honour to share the bill with so many amazing bands, and of course, I’ll never miss the opportunity to play my homeland.”
