Friday 12th - Sunday 14th June 2009

Leaping onto the UK festival calendar in 2003, Download Festival has left a permanent footprint on the live music scene ever since. Download returns for the seventh year running with a three day festival featuring more than 100 acts across three stages.

Def Leppard have been confirmed as a second main stage headliner alongside masked metallers Slipknot. They will be joined on the bill by Whitesnake, recently reformed nu-metallers Limp Bizkit, Orlando heavy metallers Trivium, Mötley Crüe, Korn, Pendulum, The Prodigy, Devildriver and DragonForce.

This year there will be a massive entertainment zone as part of the campsite, which will run until the early hours, well after the stages in the main arena have finished. This will include a cinema tent, funfair attractions, a third stage bar and several campsite bars.

Aftershock will be there, and the Soul Bowl will be open until the early hours with some very special guests appearing on stage.
