Steel Panther, A Day To Remember, The Dillinger Escape Plan and more to play at Download festival 2017!
Download – the UK’s biggest rock / metal festival adding over forty of the world’s biggest bands to an unparalled bill. In 2017 the festival will take place from 9th – 11th June at its traditional place in Donington Park, Leicestershire. Tickets are sold on www.downloadfestival.co.uk/tickets.
Glam superstars Steel Panther will be hitting the Main Stage with their tongues firmly in cheek. The crew renowned for their debaucherously live shows are back to melt faces and hearts once more. “I’m so happy to be back. Performance at Download Festival, back in 2009 was our very first show in the UK, so this festival holds a special place in my heart!” says frontman of Steel Panther, Michael Starr.
After a sold-out Wembley show last week, arena smashers A Day To Remember this summer will be bringing the party to Donington, buoyed by the triumphant success of their new album Bad Vibrations.
Following the announcement of their retirement, pioneers of their genre The Dillinger Escape Plan will be making their last ever UK festival appearance.
