Ready to get even more jealous of the UK festival? It’s been confirmed that Slipknot will be performing at next Summer’s Download Festival. They join already announced headliners Iron Maiden and Rammstein.
Slipknot’s Clown had the following to saying about the band’s upcoming festival gig”
“We are extremely honored to have been asked once again to headline the Download festival. It’s always good to have the church of the Knot, the alter of the Knot, giving the sermon of the Knot to the congregation of the Knot, the culture of the Knot. This summer cannot come soon enough. Partake in the imagination or don’t bitch.”
Granted, unless you’re planning to backpack Europe and make a stop at Donington Park in time, this announcement won’t mean much. However, the fact that Download Festival was able to snag Iron Maiden, Rammstein AND Slipknot as headliners is pretty big. Plus, the full lineup hasn’t even been announced yet! Off to a great start indeed. Next summer’s Download Fest will take place June 14-16, 2013 at Donington Park in Leicestershire, UK.
