Producers of the U.K.’s Download Festival have secured two of rock’s finest to take the main stage at their event next year. The 2014 edition of the annual fest will include a headlining performance by Avenged Sevenfold and a set by Rob Zombie . Both acts will perform on the first night of the musical extravaganza, which takes place June 13-15 at Donington Park in Leicestershire, England.
AX7 says they’re excited to be the headliners for the annual event, noting their performance will be a historic one for the group. “We are proud to be announced as the first headliner for Download Festival 2014,” writes the band in a joint statement on their Facebook page . “Friday, 13th June 2014 will mark a momentous occasion in the history of Avenged Sevenfold as we continue the tradition of spectacular Download performances by becoming headliners for the very first time, not just at Download, but at any UK festival.”
