Rammstein confirm themselves for Download Festival 2013?

Band post 2013 festival dates on their Facebook page

Chris Eustace - 20 September 2012

The German metallers revealed their 2013 summer festival schedule on their Facebook page earlier, with the band set to appear at Nova Rock, Hurricane, Southside, Rock Werchter, Wacken, FortaRock XL, Impact Festival, Rock on Volga, and Greenfield Festival next year, as well as heading to Donington Park for Download.

Like Soundgarden last year, these dates were apparently revealed by accident, and have since been removed from their page.

Rammstein are one of the perennial rumours for Download Festival, but this year speculation had gained credence through suggestions that the three headline acts would all be from different countries.

Intriguingly, they are most likely not the act that Download organisers were set to announce as the first headliners this evening – with all rumours pointing to Iron Maiden being revealed instead, and this is expected to go ahead as planned.

Download Festival 2013 takes place at Donington Park, Derbyshire from 14-16 June next summer.

Tickets are not currently on sale, with a recent Early Bird scheme now expired, but more are expected to be put on sale soon.

Stay with Virtual Festivals on Twitter and Facebook this evening for the big Download 2013 announcement at 6pm, plus all the news and rumours as we get them.
