Biffy Clyro, System Of A Down, Aerosmith head Download line-up

System Of A Down, Biffy Clyro and Aerosmith have been announced as headliners of Download Festival 2017. 

Set for Donington Park from June 9-11, other acts will include Slayer, Five Finger Death Punch, Rob Zombie and Prophets Of Rage. More acts are still to be announced.

Download Festival’s Promoter, Andy Copping said: “We’re incredibly excited to announce the Download 2017 headliners. We have three giants of rock and metal topping the bill. As always, Download fans can expect world class performances across the weekend. You won’t want to miss a thing.

"System of a Down made headline history back in 2011 and 2017 will no doubt see them bigger and better than ever. Saturday’s headliner, Biffy Clyro, have raised the bar for rock music – we’re always looking for bands to make their Download headline debut, and I have no doubt they’ll be worthy of the title. I’m delighted the mighty Aerosmith will be back, and their closing set will be something truly special. The band has a long history with Donington, and having them headline for us again is a real honour.”

Presale tickets sold out in record time, but the general sale starts today (November 4).

Download's loyalty sceme, which rewards ticket holders who have been to Download three to five times before with vouchers, runs until November 18.
