Organisers of the Download Festival have confirmed 17 more bands including Black Stone Cherry, CHTHONIC & The Oriental Orchestra, DragonForce, Masters Of Reality, Ghost, Satyricon and more for one incredible weekend of rock. Headlined by Slipknot, Iron Maiden and Rammstein, Download Festival takes place on 14-16 June 2013 at Donington Park. Day tickets are also going to go on sale from 9am on Thursday 28 March! Weekend tickets are still available and selling quick!

Back for their fourth epic appearance at Download Festival are American rockers Black Stone Cherry with some loud, hard, in-your-face rock music. The band's 2011 set left crowds gasping for more with a relentless onslaught of big guitar riffs at maximum volume. Taiwanese group CHTHONIC & The Oriental Orchestra and Norway's legendary Satyricon will treat fans to some pure unadulterated black metal, while bestowing utter mayhem and full scale metal force at Donington are DragonForce. Ghost are also confirmed for 2013 having just completed a successful UK tour culminating in a sold out Brixton Academy in London.

American rockers Masters Of Reality join the bill performing tracks spanning their six studio albums, and ready to 'Stand Up For Rock N Roll' are US group Red White & Blues. Fearless Vampire Killers will tear it up with some theatrical alt-rock, punk rock band of the moment Fidlar will bring their Californian jams to UK shores, and Brit hardcore group Palm Reader are getting ready to churn up the Donington mosh pit.

Californian'70s-style blues rockers Rival Sons are also confirmed, they joined Black Stone Cherry on their UK tour last year playing to packed out crowds across the country. American rockers Little Caesar are confirmed for some ballsy rock music, and the new supergroup Krokodil featuring members of Sikth, Johnny Truant, Cry for Silence, Gallows and Hexes will make their first Download appearance as a band.

Pop-punk piece Patent Pending are also added to the bill fresh from their tour with Bowling For Soup. Brit metal heads Idiom also join the bill, fresh from touring with Skindred, and last but by no means least are UK rockers Voodoo Six and Hammer Of The Gods.

Day tickets for the festival go on sale from Thursday 28 March at 9am.
