Limp Bizkit have confirmed that they will appear at this year's Download Festival.

Though the next line-up announcement is not due until Wednesday morning (January 16), Limp Bizkit jumped the gun and mentioned Download in a message to their fans about the festivals they are due to play later in the year. Posted on their Facebook page, the Limp Bizkit message reads: "We are really excited to play India February 16 & 17. Its been long enough! We've always wanted to visit there. Also – plans for an exclusive USA run are underway for April/May. Did somebody say Sonisphere and Download after that?!! And the UK? And Europe? And Russia? And Australia? And Asia? It cannot be!! Let'z get your Bizkit on!!!"

If the band's post proves correct, Limp Bizkit will join Mastodon, Iron Maiden, Rammstein and Slipknot on the line up for Download 2013. Queens of the Stone Age, Bullet For My Valentine, 30 Seconds To Mars, Motorhead and The Gaslight Anthem also appear on the bill.

Download Festival will take place from June 14-16 2013 at Donington Park. The festival was headlined by Metallica, Black Sabbath and The Prodigy in 2012. See Downloadfestival.com for more information.
