The Dillinger Escape Plan, Sikth and Volbeat have all been added to the Download Festival 2014 line-up.

The rock festival will be headlined by Aerosmith, Linkin Park and Avenged Sevenfold as well as seeing previously announced appearances from Alter Bridge, Rob Zombie and Fall Out Boy.

Download Festival will take place at Donington Park between June 13 and 15, 2014. Other newly announced bands on the bill include Suicide Silence, Buckcherry, Memphis May Fire, Battlecross, Jake E. Lee's Red Dragon Cartel, Arcane Roots, Thy Art is Murder, The Amity Affliction, Avatar, Lonely The Brave and Feed The Rhino.

Sikth, who split in 2008, will reform to play the festival. Dan Weller of the band said: "We've always said that one day we would get Sikth back together and do another show and next year just feels like the right time to stop the talking and do it. To be honest we really miss playing those songs. Our fans have been so loyal so it's time to give them something back. We played Download in 2003 and 2006 so it seemed the obvious place for us to make a return."

Slipknot, Rammstein and Iron Maiden all played headline sets at Download Festival 2013 with support from 30 Seconds To Mars, Queens Of The Stone Age, Mötörhead, Enter Shikari, A Day To Remember and Bullet For My Valentine.
