Another 36 bands have been added to the bill for this year’s Download festival.

Among the latest confirmed acts are Jane’s Addiction, NOFX, Sixx:AM, Alien Ant Farm and Amon Amarth.

They’ll join headliners Rammstein, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and many others at Donington Park on the weekend of June 10-12.

The event has also revealed plans for a tribute to late Motorhead icon Lemmy Kilmister, who passed away at his Los Angeles home on December 28 just four days after his 70th birthday.

Organisers Live Nation say: “Whilst we’re saddened to say Motorhead will no longer be performing at this year’s Download Festival, we will honour a true rock‘n’roll icon who inspired so many others on the bill, Lemmy Kilmister.

“For one year only, Download Festival’s Main Stage will be named ‘The Lemmy Stage’ in tribute to a much loved and missed legend. We are working with Motorhead’s management on a tribute to the great man during the slot he would have performed on, More information to follow.”

The complete list of 36 acts added today is Alien Ant Farm, Amon Amarth, Anti-Flag, Ashestoangels, As Lions, Black Peaks, Bury Tomorrow, Cane Hill, Danko Jones, Electric Wizard, Escape The Fate, Good Tiger, Grand Magus, Graveyard, Heck, Hill Valley High, Jane’s Addiction, Kadavar, The Kenneths, The King Is Blind, Monster Truck, Muncie Girls, Municipal Waste, NOFX, One OK Rock, Palisades, Periphery, Reigning Days, Shvpes, Sixx:A.M., Slaves (US), Strange Bones, Turbowolf, Wage War, Whiskey Myers and Zoax.
