Who We Think Will Have The Best Shows In Download Festival Lineup!

Although we're sure you've seen them multiple times, one of the ultimate bands that have been announced for the Download Festival Lineup is Avenged Sevenfold.

One band that we love and can't wait to see again is the fabled You Me At Six. With Classic Songs such as 'Bite My Tongue' and 'Loverboy'; we cannot wait to see them take control of the Zippo Encore Stage at Download festival 2018! Another band we cannot wait to see, especially after their latest album 'Reaching Into Infinity' is Dragonforce. We're sure that their vocals, guitar solos and crowd interactions will be bigger and better than ever!
