FINAL TWO HEADLINERS FOR DOWNLOAD ANNOUNCED
As the already-announced AC/DC, the other two headliners on the Download 2010 are none other than one of America's greatest Rock 'N' Roll bands Aerosmith and hip-hop punkers Rage Against The Machine.
Celebrating 40 years at the top, Aerosmith will return to the main stage at Donington Park for the first time in 16 years.
Last playing as headliners of the Donington Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1990 and 1994, Steven Tyler, Joe Perry et al return with their legendary juggernaut performance, one that has earned them the title of best-selling American rock band of all time.
Rage Against The Machine, who in a storm of publicity and heavy campaigning scored the UK Christmas No. 1 single last year, will for the very first time bring their sheer power of political alternative, hip-hop, punk rock to the festival's main stage.
To this day, Rage Against The Machine, who were presented the Hall Of Fame Award by Kerrang! Magazine in 2008, remain one of the most popular and influential political bands in contemporary music.
The excitement doesn't end there though, as Jared Leto's phenomenal THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS, SlipKnot frontman Corey Taylor's other band STONE SOUR and iconic punk rocker BILLY IDOL have also been added to the line-up.
Also on the bill are LAMB OF GOD, one of rock's most brutal live bands, and the incredible FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, who were one of the biggest highlights from last year's festival.
Don't miss your chance to experience these band, plus over a hundred others when Download returns to Donington Park in June, celebrating 30 years of rock heritage at the illustrious site.
