Have a Slash at Download

GUITAR hero Slash is among the latest acts at the cutting edge of Download Festival’s lineup.
The former Guns ‘N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver axeman has a new album out in May featuring Dave Grohl, Lemmy and Wolfmother’s Andrew Stockdale - so expect a star studded line-up for his set.
Sound Advice picks from the 30 bands named this week include The Used, Atreyu, Flyleaf, Breed 77 and Year Long Disaster.
Plus plenty of acts with pedigree have been confirmed - The Damned Things features members of Anthrax, Fall Out Boy and Every Time I Die, Michael Monroe features members of The Wildhearts and Hanoi Rocks, Sweethead is a Queens Of the Stone Age side project, and Tiger Please are managed by Funeral for a Friend’s Ryan Richards.
Also named on the bill are Cancer Bats, Porcupine Tree, No Americana, Senser, Halestorm, Nonpoint, As I Lay Dying, White Wizzard, Zebrahead, Rock Sugar, Holy Grail, Straight Lines, Revoker, Young Guns, Tyketto, Die Apokalyptischen Reiter, Enuff Z’Nuff, Panic Cell, Glamour Of The Kill and Sybreed.
A spokesman said: “These 30 acts join headliners AC/DC, Rage Against The Machine and Aerosmith plus many more in what will be not only be the greatest rock festival this year but the ultimate festival experience at the legendary home of rock, Donington Park.”
Of course, you can celebrate the news by listening to this Spotify playlist containing nearly all confirmed Download acts.
