Hold onto your hats metal lovers, because Download festival have promised their biggest year yet with their 2016 line-up. And if the headline acts are anything to go by, you may well be rocked to death by some of the biggest bands in the world. The weekend is as follows:

Friday 10th June – Rammstein

Saturday 11th June – Black Sabbath

Sunday 12th June – Iron Maiden

Yes. Just pause for a moment to let that sink in.

It’s not a total shocker to see Iron Maiden at a UK festival, as they will embark upon their “Book of Souls” tour next year. Also with the announcement of Black Sabbath’s final tour “The End” taking place next year, it seems only right that they return to Download for one last time. But the return of Rammstein is very interesting indeed.

Tickets for Download 2016 go on sale Friday 23rd October at 9am so make sure you’re poised at your laptop, computer, tablet or phone to guarantee your ticket for this epic event.
