Metallica and Download – the Lowdown

There have been rumours flying around the net and the airwaves concerning a possible appearance by Metallica at this weekend's Download Festival...we bring you the news from the horses mouth

Having seen the rumours circulating online and heard the rumour on the radio today, Clear Channel, in it’s capacity as Download Festival promoters, has issued the following statement:

[l-zone1]”We are huge Metallica fans at Download and would be honoured to have them performing at our festival. However, they are not playing at Download. We gather a rumour was started when we added Apocalyptica to the bill earlier this week.”

So we’re sorry to dissapoint you all, but regardless of this news you can be sure that the Download lineup will really light your fuse!

See you at the weekend.
