SLIPKNOT: tredje headliner klar for Download 2013

We can officially reveal that Slipknot will be returning to Download next year, headlining the Friday night of the festival.

This huge news marks the band’s second headline appearance following an explosive set in 2009.

They join fellow headliners Iron Maiden on Saturday 15th June and Rammstein on Sunday 16th June.

"Slipknot’s last appearance at Download has gone down in the festival’s history as one of the best ever headline sets," said Download promoter Andy Copping. "God knows what they’ll have in store for 2013 but I’m looking forward to seeing how they’ll top the last one."

Weekend tickets to Download 2013 are on presale to all Download subscribers right now, and will be going on general sale at 9am tomorrow (Friday). Click here to get yours!

A range of amazing RIP packages are also on sale here.

Slipknot, Iron Maiden and Rammstein on the hallowed Donington turf, plus LOADS more to be announced. It WILL get loud. See ya there.
