Download Festival has announced another plethora of bands including Devin Townsend Project, Suicide Silence, Code Orange and many more.

Download Festival takes place on 9 -­‐ 11 June 2017 at the spiritual home of rock in Donington Park, Leicestershire.

New to 2017, The Avalanche Stage shines a spotlight on everyone from the biggest global acts, to the latest breaking bands. Headlined by the previously announced Sleeping With Sirens, Simple Plan and The Dillinger Escape Plan, the Avalanche Stage will be hosted by new music champions, Kerrang’s Fresh Blood.

Alex Baker, presenter of Fresh Blood on Kerrang! Radio said:

“Right now, there is an undeniable, electric excitement about new music in the air and as soon as we saw the new Avalanche Stage we just had to be involved.It was clear from the get-­‐go that one of The Avalanche Stage’s aims was to ensure that there was a dedicated space for these new bands within the festival. Download has always been amazing at supporting new talent and I’ve always admired them for that– so it was a no brainer to get as involved as much as humanely possible!”

Metal behemoth, Devin Townsend Project will be making their welcomed return to Download Festival, featuring living-legend and ex Strapping Young Lad frontman, Devin Townsend.

On playing the festival, Devin said:

“Download! Amidst a crazy year, we have been invited to play at one of my favourite festivals in the world. The band is rocking better than ever, and we are fired up to have some fun with you guys. We look forward to blowing the roof off the place. See you there!”

The hottest name in hardcore, Code Orange are torchbearers for their genre and will excite festival goers with a crushing set. Twenty years on from the release of ground-breaking album Roots, Max & Iggor Cavalera reunite to perform the seminal record in its entirety to the Download crowd.

Having influenced heavy music with their rapid twin vocal and tech metal, groove masters SikTh will bring the Main Stage mosh pit to life. Deathcore stalwarts Suicide Silence are back with tracks from their eponymous fifth album and are set to deliver an incomparably powerful live set at Donington this summer. Joining them are unmissable supergroup elite, Krokodil who are set to impress with their immensely forceful metal, and UK stoner rock legends, Orange Goblin with their heavy hammer, steel toed riffs and fistfuls of attitude.

Renowned for his wild live shows and fiercely loyal fan base, Ohio rapper Machine Gun Kelly has received waves of critical and commercial success with sophomore album General Admission, which he’ll be bringing in abundance to Download this June. Aussie rock heroes Sick Puppies will serve up their tooth rattling rock and hard hitting hooks that will send the Download crowd wild. Led by the incredible Johnny Hawkins, San Antonio rockers Nothing More have cemented themselves in the top echelons of modern rockand will be bringing their ferocious live performance to Donington.

Having previously supported Iron Maiden, metalcore outfit The Raven Age stride between melody and brute force, and will be returning to Download for another epic performance. They’ll be joined by tour de force of energy,

Yonaka, and country rock n’ rollers Blackwater Conspiracy.

The dark and volatile Perturbator completes the trio of Dogtooth Stage headliners alongside the previously announced Exodus and Wednesday 13. Prepare to be lost in his technoir, dark synthwave as he closes the Dogtooth Stage for 2017. Dublin’s grunge pop rockers OTHERKIN will riff their way through infectious songs with a raucous energy, whilst London five piece, Drones will be out to deliver a barrage of hardcore punk for the Download Festival audience.

Having supported the likes of rock legends Black Stone Cherry and Halestorm, The Fallen State will bring soulful vocals and unapologetic rock to Donington. Expect a distinctive mix of pop, punk and new wave from London/LA duo Love Zombies, chaotic and energetic indie punk from Blackwaters, gritty modern blues fuelled rock from Bristol natives Tax The Heat and soulful rock n’ roll from Nashville’sTyler Bryant & The Shakedown.

Download Festival is the home of rock music and takes place on the sacred grounds of Donington Park, which have been associated with rock since the eighties. The festival attractsrock icons to its Main Stage, plus some of the best and hottest new acts in the world. AC/DC, KISS, Metallica, Def Leppard, Guns N’ Roses, Rage Against The Machine, Slipknot, Linkin Park and many more have all headlined its Main Stage.

That's what happens when you're Addicted to Love

My lad and his mate went this year.didnt know how to put up tent.he rang me to ask me how,so I told him to ask his neighbors.10 people later and 10 minutes.tent up.friends for life

I wanna go download SO bad, but none of my friends are into this music and won't go 🙁

Sam Saunders this is why we go!

My 19th is planned for 2018.🤘

Darrel Lister its a lie ther all horrible cunts

Haha mine and Liam Piper first year was 2015 and we couldn't put our tent up. Jess Lucas And Emma Gibson felt sorry for us and helped.the family has grown along the way 🙂

It was my first time this year and I've never felt more comfortable here than I have anywhere else The amount of people I spoke to, even if it was just for 5/10 minutes was amazing.. Didn't meet one bad person Roll on 2018

The best fans in the world. Bring on 2018.

Gabbie O'Neil such a lovely place and all we get is a few chats and a ballsack flashed at us 😂😂

Holy Hell it's me! Whaaaat?! 😀

I was camped in Green this year and met some amazing people on the first day. Ended up camping with them all for the whole 5 days, it definitely made DL better

Aye, Download is great fun, but not when people think it's acceptable to piss on your tent whilst you're in it

The best place and the best people!

I tried to buy a beer can from my tent neighbour and he gave me a 12 pack as a gift... and they were cold!

Shane Roberts met this geeza. In 2011 & again in 2012! Then 5 years later DL2017 he appeared out of no where in blue camp 😂 small world 🌎 haha

Was he addicted to love?

I love this festival. Everyone just gets on with everyone else. We had a bit of a panic when returning to our tent Sunday night, as we had shut it, but the zip was open slightly. Checked the tent, nothing missing, then suddenly realised that someone had been in the tent to get some pegs out and hammered in extra guide ropes to secure it. It had been really windy that day and someone must of noticed the tent was at risk of blowing over, and decided to help out. We still have no idea who did this for us, but this is how we describe the spirit of Download. It really is an amazing, friendly festival🤘🤘

Is he Addicted To Love?

Steffen Monsvik container

Martin Callum Neish, us a and Ryan until sunrise.

Nikki Davenport Michelle Johnson

I love download but this year some douche stole from our tent and six in the same row as us. First time I've had a bad experience at download. Won't stop me from attending next year, but I'll be more careful.
