Summer has only been over for a little while, but it has already been confirmed that Avenged Sevenfold will be headlining next year’s Download Festival. The annual festival which takes place at Donington Park in the United Kingdom has already revealed that the festival is scheduled to take place during the weekend of June 13- June 15.
Organizers have revealed that the California-based band will be performing on the Friday of the event. Also joining Avenged Sevenfold on their scheduled day will be Rob Zombie.
While those two names have already been confirmed, event organizer Andy Copping said that he would love to secure a reunited Led Zeppelin, Van Halen and the original line-up of Guns N’ Roses as future headliners; so far, his wishes have not been answered.
This past year’s Download Festival on the other hand, had quite a line-up including the likes of Slipknot, Rammstein and Iron Maiden as headliners while 30 Seconds To Mars, Queens Of The Stone Age, Motorhead, Enter Shikari, A Day To Remember and Bullet For My Valentine were “supporting” acts.
As for Avenged Sevenfold, the band released their sixth studio album, Hail to the King this past August which made it to number one on the Billboard 200.
