Not content with what is looking to be a solid lineup, Download Festival have announced a mammoth 43 acts to join an already stacked weekend headlined by Slipknot, Tool and Def Leppard that features thrash legends Slayer’s final ever UK show along with acts across the musical spectrum, from Die Antwoord to Carcass.

Once again we returned to our hallowed home, Tech Fest, for another bout of metal goodness! This year we caught the likes of Crystal Lakes, Embodied, Heart of a Coward, Jonny Turner, Ursus, From Her Ashes, Taken By The Tide and Fractions!
