Puscifer, Cancer Bats, and More Added to Download Festival


The U.K. edition of Download Festival just announced a pretty exciting group of bands that will definitely make the trek worth it for U.S. fans.

The show is now slated to include: Puscifer, State Champs, Haken, Hundred Reasons, Cancer Bats, Static Dress, Punk Rock Factory, Casey, RedHook, Rituals, and Snayx.

The fest, which is officially called Download20, will take place June 8-11 in Donington Park.

In a statement about the new addition, the fest spokespeople say:

“The ever-enigmatic Maynard James Keenan will be returning to Donington, this time with his electro-rock band Puscifer making their Download debut. Expect the unexpected.

“Fresh off the back of their latest album, Glorious Sunset, Hundred Reasons haven’t played Download since 2006, and we can’t wait to welcome them back to the home of rock.

“Cherry Bombs have supported the likes of Corey Taylor on tour and are known to combine dance, fire, aerial, stilt walking, and more into one hell of a rock ‘n’ roll show.

“Hardcore punks Cancer Bats and 00’s revivalists Static Dress will also play the Opus Stage across the weekend.”
