The first headliner...
NME reports that Avenged Sevenfold have been named the first headlining band for the 2014 Download Festival. They will perform on Friday night, June 13. The festival runs June 13-16 at Donington Park. Rob Zombie will also perform on Friday night.
Festival organizer Andy Copping said earlier this year he wanted to get a reunited Led Zeppelin, Van Halen or the original lineup of Guns N' Roses as future headliners. He said: "I'd love to get them (Van Halen), but who knows when? Maybe one year we can get them to come over and it'll happen, I live in hope. You can't rule any bands at that level out: Led Zeppelin, the original line-up of Guns N' Roses, I'd love to get them, hopefully it'll happen one day."
This year's event was headlined by Slipknot, Rammstein and Iron Maiden with support from 30 Seconds To Mars, Queens Of The Stone Age, Motorhead, Enter Shikari, A Day To Remember and Bullet For My Valentine.
