"Expect surprises" says Download

GIRLS Aloud to headline Download Festival?
Unlikely - but speaking after the announcement AC/DC are to break their recent festival duck to headline Download, the Castle Donington festival's booker-in-chief Andy Copping has warned that there may be bigger surprises in store for 2010.
He told Sound Advice: "You'll have to wait and see, but there's at least one big surprise which will shock everybody - in a good way.
"We will be keeping the bill as diverse as possible and we're happy with it. There's always been variety across the whole bill.
"When we booked the Prodigy I was vilified, but when I brought them back everybody was so excited.
"The same happened with Pendulum, but they turned out to be one of the bands of the weekend.
"The reaction to AC/DC has been a huge amount of amazement and excitement - they just don't do festivals - and the other two headliners we'll be announcing in the coming weeks are also both big acts and worthy headliners."
