Zog's annual obligatory Download Festival thread (in Off-topic)

So, the new year has been here for a while and festival fever is already kicking in with rumours and announcements starting to get us music lovers' adreniline pumping.

Every year I (usually GL also) go to Download Fest at Donnington, UK (the old Monsters of Rock site) and have rarely had a dull moment there.

Here is the link to the site after the first 9 bands have been announced and there are still over 100 bands to follow, 2 of which are headliners.


I'm already imagining being in that field in the middle of nowhere rocking out to Back in Black :)

ᆪ180 pop this year! We called it last year... /sigh

What's the bet that it'll be ᆪ200 next! ;)

But have you seen who's headlining!

I bought mine early bird :)
The DC will be epic and if the forums are anything to go by we'll be getting even more for our money than we could wish for :)

Other 2 headliners announced plus a few other bands.
Aerosmith FTW!!!!!!
Rage and Billy Idol should be good also

Considering AC/DC went for $140 AUD for the headline shows in AUS the value sounds pretty good.

Yeah, and the gf and I got ours at the early bird prices which were around 20 cheaper each.
