With the beginning of this new year the number of headlines of the Heavy Metal festivals are growing up!
The Download Festival which announced its 3 principal headlines few months ago (Black Sabbath, Metallica and The Prodigy) has just added the critically acclaimed Thrash Metal Machine Head, and our favorite rednecks Lamb of God. The festival is continuing its opening to a larger audience with band such as Tenacious D (Jack Black) and the Grunge legendary Soundgarden. It is rumoured that Van Halen will play in exclusivity to the Download (RockHard mag).
The date of the 2 festivals (8 to10 of june for the Download and 15 to 17 of the same month) will probably give us a good idea of what band will complete the Download Line up(exclusivity except, such as Metallica), as every year.
