Download Festival 2019 has just been announced! Although my guesses of Metallica and Bring Me The Horizon were completely wrong, I did get Slash right!
As well as Slash, we also have my personal faves Rob Zombie, Die Antwoord and Slipknot taking the stage.
Who’s Playing Download Festival 2019
Headliners: Def Leppard, Slipknot, Tool.
SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS, WHITESNAKE, ROB ZOMBIE, TRIVIUM, AMON AMARTH, CARCASS, DELAIN, DIE ANTWOORD, ME FIRST AND THE GIMME GIMMES, OPETH, POWER TRIP, REEL BIG FISH, SKINDRED, STARSET, TESLA, THE AMITY AFFLICTION, UNDEROATH
…MANY MORE TO BE REVEALED
And speaking of acts to be revealed, who do you think will be in the next announcements?
I always seem to get it wrong, but at Download 2019 I’d really LOVE to see: Powerman5000, Mudvayne and maybe some bands like Alkaline Trio and Finch.
And before you judge for Finch, they did that bangin’ Project Mayhem album which was a lot harder than their earlier emo days.
I think Clutch and Royal Blood would also be great additions to the bill (see I can mention ‘modern’ bands) – but I am seeing Clutch in December, so not great loss if they don’t turn up, eh.
Some of my predictions make sense, others not much so. But hey I did get Slash right for this year, even if he’s not a headliner.
