Megadeth and more for Download

Megadeth's Dave Mustaine has thrown down the gauntlet for Slash to join him on stage at Download, after his band were announced to play the three-day rock festival, along with several others...

Download takes place at Donington Park, Leicestershire, from 8-10 June.

Other acts just confirmed are Turbonegro, Buckcherry, Shadows Fall and Dream Theater.

But perhaps the most excited band to join the bill are Megadeth, who seem intent on some kind of link up with Slash from Velvet Revolver.

Frontman Dave Mustaine said: "The last time that Slash and I played on this stage on the same day was 1988 at Castle Donington, back when it was called Monsters of Rock. So, besides Download being one of the most prestigious festivals in heavy metal history to play on, I'm looking forward to seeing if Slash will join me to play something like 'Night Train' or 'Mr. Brownstone' for old time's sake."
