I made some comments on here a few weeks ago about how if Download 2021 is going to largely be 2020's lineup, 2022 is the year that they should really start to look towards the future and give lots of

The addition of Rise Against, Billy Talent, BMTH and BFMV would make me very, very happy.

God I love Rise Against, absolutely unreal band.

Billy Talent have been unofficially confirmed back at SD I believe. RA under Frank Carter on the original Download Friday would be good....but also clash with Lacuna Coil. Not sure I see a space unless of a drop out.

If they focused on the classics I wouldn't mind it, secret set at Reading was good fun.

Even if they just focus on the classics, there’s no way they should be subbing. They shouldn’t have last time out. Third down or second stage headliner is right for them.

Oh I agree its too high for them, just that if they were booked there I'd rather it be a classics set. I got Gravity for a quid in a charity shop and felt ripped off.

Same here. Include Architects and While She Sleeps and it'd be one of my favourite lineups, regardless of the other two headliners (assuming BMTH is one).

Have them headline Zippo against Kiss or whoever the dinosaur band is.

According to Ken RATM were meant to be doing RW 2021. Obviously now they are no longer going ahead with those plans. Reckon Download may have had them in the pipeline and lost them too?

If they were planning on continuing to tour festivals until 2021 then it must be an almost given that they were lined up for Download. If those plans have now been postponed a year, we can probably make a safe bet of them being there in 2022 instead.

But what about R&L... they aren’t looking like they are making up that date at all.

There was speculation that All Points East might have grabbed Rage since there US shows were being run by the same promoter.

Hmm seem a much bigger deal than any of the headliners APE has had thus far. Would surely be an almost instant sell out, especially if their R&L is in the can.

Highly doubt it. No way APE could get them

I can't see that & surely BST would be more likely if we're going by the AEG logic, being the bigger of the two London events. 

RATM were booked for Livenation events this year, so AEG don't have any sort of exclusivity on the reunion.

As much as I love those bands, I just can’t see Bring Me and Foos.
 

Given the poor reception Biffy got, I can’t ever see them bumping up a band like Bring Me, who are seen as a “pop sellout band” by most hardcore Download fans even though Amo is better than at least 80% of BMTH’s other output.

As for Foos, I just think if it was ever going to happen, it would have happened by now. There’s been so many chances for them to be booked but Download just don’t ever seem to be interested in them. 

I would happily take both of them over fucking SOAD and Maiden AGAIN.

Been said a few times on here now, but what with the major UK festival market dwindling and festivals like TITP gone and IOW downscaling, Download is seeming more likely than ever for Foos imo, especially after only doing Glastonbury and Reading/Leeds so recently. If they're coming to the UK for a festival tour in the next five or so years, there's nowhere else for them to go other than Download. I think it'll happen.
