Idol says: “It was a fantastic experience playing at Download 2010 in the teeming rain, with the audience completely unfazed. If that was fun, this year should be dynamite.”

Rise Against frontman Tim McIlraith adds: “Download always puts together one of the best and heaviest lineups in the UK – and we’re pretty damn ready to get muddy with the best of them.”

Five Finger Death Punch, Black Stone Cherry, Faith No More, Marilyn Manson, A Day To Remember, Motley Crue, Slash and Enter Shikari have already been confirmed for the bill, with many more to follow.
