Bands joining the line-up include the mighty Fightstar: a decade on from their debut release, the post hardcore giants came back from a 4 year hiatus at the end of last year for a triumphant run of sold out shows celebrating their 10thanniversary and return to the Donington stage for the first time since their main stage performance in 2008.
Charlie Simpson from Fightstar said:
We are incredibly excited to be playing our first festival appearance in five years at this year’s Download Festival. Download has always been one of our favourite festivals in the calendar and this year is going to be the best yet! We can’t wait to hit the stage again and enjoy the mayhem.
Max and Igor, bring the Cavalera Conspiracy to Donington for the first time in seven years and neither Cavalera brother pulled their punches when describing what Download fans can expect.
I am super excited to be part of this amazing line up for Download 2015, we can’t wait to hit the stage and display some brutality from our new record. See you all on the pit!
I am excited to return to Download with Cavalera Conspiracy! I promise you all the most brutal show ever!
Other exciting acts bound for Donington include The Sword with the Texan stoner-doom-sludge-merchants confirmed for Download just in time to hit the studio in March to record their fifth album, while Sylosis bring their signature mix of thrash and death metal back to Download for the first time since the release of January’s gigantic album Dormant Heart. Emerging fem-punk rockers The Pink Slips make their Download debut this year, fronted by seventeen year-old Grace McKagen, whose father has dabbled with the bass guitar once or twice at Donington over the years. The Download faithful will also have a first opportunity to see Donington regular Ginger Wildheart moonlighting as an ass-kicking glam rocker with Hey! Hello!.
Download 2015 will also feature some of the most mind-alteringly awesome new music from across the Atlantic and beyond, including the genetic experiment in post-apocalyptic doom-punk known as Code Orange whose fellow Pennsylvanians Crobot will also be serving up their steel-reinforced, supercharged blues rock to the Donington masses for the first time.
Other newcomers include Southern bluegrass-rock groovesters Blackberry Smoke, and Dead Daisies – the Australian-American revolving door of Rock’s best and brightest.
This deluge of talent flooding Donington Park from June 12-14 will be joined by headliners Slipknot, Muse and Kiss, main support Judas Priest, Faith No More and Mötley Crüe, and such rock and metal megastars Black Stone Cherry, Enter Shikari, Marilyn Manson, Five Finger Death Punch, A Day To Remember, Slash and Miles Kennedy, Black Veil Brides, Lamb of God, Rise Against, Billy Idol, L7, Andrew W.K, In Flames, Testament, Parkway Drive, Hollywood Undead, Clutch, Body Count, Eagles of Death Metal, Godsmack, Mallory Knox, Motionless in White, Madball,Every Time I Die, Dragonforce, Backyard Babies, Crown the Empire, Northlane and H.E.A.T.
