It is the rock trio’s debut appearance at the festival and naturally they’re looking forward to playing, saying “We’re really looking forward to Download. We’ve never played the festival before so it’s going to be really special”
Muse’s slot will follow the second appearance at Download of Faith No More, who last headlined in 2009 as part of their reunion shows. The band say “Hard to believe it’s been five years already, but what’s harder to deny is that a lot has changed. The last time we played Download the focus was on bringing back the past – now it’s all about the present and the future. Where it should be.”
Third on the Main Stage this year are A Day to Remember, who will play for the fifth time in their careers.
Rounding off the quartet of bands announced today is Marilyn Manson, who will headline the second stage. The self-proclaimed ‘God of Fuck’ who last played five years ago says “It’s been a few years since I’ve been at Download. The Pale Emperor will rise and I was born to cause chaos.”
The announcement follows yesterday’s confirmation of Slipknot, Judas Priest, Five Finger Death Punch and Black Stone Cherry.
