Cracking line up this year. Gutted about lack of Enter Kari but you can't have it all. The Megadeth camp have leaked that Godsmack and Black Veil Brides are playing the main stage on Sunday.

I know sonisphere is probably going to pull something special out of the bag (korn+skrillex, Axel and friends (ok not so special), Refused, At the Drive In, Sikth, etc) but really happy I have a Download ticket.

Boom!

I would love Godsmack to play, but it would surprise me if they were opening the main stage. They are huge in America! A second stage slot high up would be more likely.

How can the 3rd announcement be a huge dissapointment. You must have had high hopes to feel that let down. ;)

Was hoping for QOTSA. but not displeased with what we've got. Also, what happened to Motley Crue?

having had time to reflect on the announcement, I'm still holding on for the soni announcement before I decide which of the two I am going to. of those announced today - kyuss, terrorvision, megadeth are the only 3 i would watch. 5fdp can get fucked, and slash is just "meh" as far as I'm concerned. the others, I can take or leave.

not saying its a shit announcement, but 2 more "must sees" in that, and I would have bitten. particularly placebo or qotsa.

It's put me off buying a ticket as well, just yet at least.

So many repeats in that bunch , and of the bands that aren't repeated 3 of them were at Sonisphere last year (or 2010). The only bands I'd like to see really are Rise Against, and I can't even see them because they clash with Sabbath, and Kyuss Lives, who are brilliant. FFDP are just diabolical and most of the undercard, so far (for me) is just really boring. It's a bit frustrating as I really want to see Soundgarden and Sabbath, but the other 2 days just have nothing for me (except Biffy and Prodigy - both who I've seen many times before).

Well Sunday looks strong for me. Devildriver should be much higher in my opinion but LOG are the clincher. Epic !!!

I've already got my ticket, as i go whoever plays, as it's such a good atmosphere, except when prodigy and that aussie lot play.

In 2007 there were only 3 bands i liked, but stil had a cracking time

Are rise against big enough to headline 2nd, cause i know nothing about them.

Bought my ticket, amazing how big a difference the various sites charge for fees and stuff. The Download website appeared to want £13 postage lol, they can **** off.

Rise Against is such a poor way to end the weekend, hope the third is better but not expecting a lot. Still it's all relatively clash free at the moment which is good.

see i think it's fairly poor bu that is basing it on someone that is not the most heavy music minded and thought headers wise and lineup wise last year was about the best it might get for me to try download and it appears i might be right

Gutted that Slash is clashing with The Prodigy. I have missed Prodigy twice at festivals because of clashes. Looks like I'm going to have to do half and half this year. Both are too good to miss.

i would think The Prodigy will do a tour later this year anyway seen as they have a new album out. i'd end up waiting for billy talent that day and then waiting for the headliner

To be honest, good, as they are a poor mans AIC.

There's a thought, put AIC on supporting slash
