Download Festival 2019 – More Acts Announced
The line up for this year’s Download Festival is looking immense. They just keep adding more and more acts and I just keep getting more excited. Let me tell you a little of why the 2019 Download Festival is a festival not to be missed…
The line up really is amazing – usually in my option there is always one day (of any festival) that I would be happy to miss however, not in this case. All 3 days of music look epic and all of the bands are amazing!
Friday 14th June 2019
Main Stage – Def Leppard will be the main headliner and they will be performing Hysteria in its entirety. Wow! An English rock group formed in 1977 they have such a fan base I can imagine that the stage will be swamped.
Slash – yeah baby, I have never seen him myself but have friends who have and they have all said what an amazing set he puts on.
Whitesnake – another English group around for many years and for good reason.
Zippo Stage – Zob Zombie will be bringing his energy to Download headlining the Zippo stage.
EODM – An amazing super group featuring Josh Homme on Drums (Queens of The Stone Age) and Jack Black on occasion. They are not actually a death metal band. The name is meant to be ironic and humorous. They tend to have more of a bluegrass feel to them.
Saturday 15th June 2019
Main Stage – Headlining the main stage on this day will be Slipknot – a little too much for my tastes personally but that does not mean that I cannot appreciate they talent.
Die Antwoord – a south African hip hop/dance duo who have been around since 2008. With hits such as Enter The Ninja and Ugly Boy, what’s not to like.
Trivium – An American heavy metal band
Zippo Stage – You can expect to see the likes of Halestorm, Skindred, Stone Temple Pilots and Three Day’s Grace.
Sunday 16th June 2019
Main Stage – now this is the day that will put the rest to shame. There are so many great bands to see and especially TOOL! I am so freaking excited! They are never in the UK but they are coming to our stages at Download only! I have wanted to see these guys for years and 2019 is the year!
Smashing Pumpkins – another amazing band one that I have had the pleasure to see on several occasions. I can’t wait.
Zippo Stage – shame that some of these guys will be on at the same time as the other headliners however, if they are not your thing then be sure to go to the Zippo Stage;
Slayer who will be performing their final show in the UK.
Dream Theatre who are just brilliant.
You see why this is a festival not to be missed.
Across the days you can also find bands such as Me First and the Gimme Gimmes who are a funky covers band who like to put a punk rock spin on tracks such as R Kelly’s I believe I can Fly. They are great fun to watch. Reel Big Fish and Black Peaks are amongst other bands not to be missed.
If you cannot attend the full weekend then later on in the year usually April time, they release a limited amount of day tickets.
The weekend tickets are on sale now and can be found by clicking here. the prices to vary depending on the amount of days that you wish to camp. It also depends on the type of camping package that you choose.
The weather during June is usually nice and so don’t forget some nice light festival clothing to keep you nice and cool in the mosh pits at Download Festival.
