Kiss are also rumoured to be joining the line-up. The glam rock band are reported to be headlining the second stage at the festival.
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.
Of Slipknot’s headline set on June 14 2013, Download Festival organiser Andy Copping has said: “Slipknot’s last appearance at Download has gone down in the festival’s history as one of the best ever headline sets. God knows what they’ll have in store for 2013 but I’m looking forward to seeing how they’ll top the last one.”
