The big names are all there with likes of Limp Bizkit, Jimmy Eat World, Korn, Down, Enter Shikari and Cancer Bats amongst others all set to appear at the bash, which is due to take place at Donington Park on 14th to 16th June 2013.

Limp Bizkit, who jumped the gun slightly by posting on their Facebook page 24 hours prior to the official announcement that they would be appearing at Download, will be headlining the second stage alongside the likes of Him, A Day To Remember, The Hives and Converge.

The main stage is taking shape nicely with headliners Slipknot, Iron Maiden, Rammstein joined by new additions Stone Sour, Mastodon, Five Finger Death Punch and Young Guns along with the aforementioned Enter Shikari and Cancer Bats.

Download is known across the globe as being one of the premier festivals for rock and metal bands and has boasted headliners such as Metallica, Linkin Park and System Of A Down in previous years.

Tickets are currently on sale with prices starting from £165, excluding fees.
