Faith No More to headline Download 2009
The newly-reformed Faith No More will headline this year's Download Festival

The band, who originally split in 1998, will join other headliners Slipknot and Def Leppard at the bash, which runs until June 14. Other bands set to appear on the bill include Korn, Marilyn Manson and Limp Bizkit.

Faith No More, who top the bill on Friday June 12, released a statement last week saying that they decided to reform because they felt that "through all the hard work, the music still sounds good, and we are beginning to appreciate the fact that we might have actually done something right".

The Download line-up so far is:

Faith No More
Def Leppard
Marilyn Manson
Limp Bizkit
ZZ Top
Motley Crue
The Prodigy
Dream Theater
Killswitch Engage
Billy Talent
Buck Cherry
The Blackout
