SLIPKNOT are announced as the third headliner at Download Festival on Friday 14 June 2013, marking the band’s second headline appearance following an explosive set in 2009.
They join fellow headliners IRON MAIDEN on Saturday, June 15th and RAMMSTEIN on Sunday, June 16th.
‘"We are extremely honoured to have been asked once again to headline the Download Festival,” said Slipknot’s Clown. “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.”
More bands will be announced soon.
