Here’s who’s playing at Download Festival 2023 ThePipaNews


Metallica and Slipknot have been announced in the first wave of acts for Download Festival’s 20th anniversary show next year. The 2023 event features four days of music instead of three, meaning fans will be treated to even more world-class music in what will be a special year for the festival.

Metallica will play two headline sets on Thursday and Saturday but no song will be played twice. Metallica first played Download in 2004 and were last at Donington Park in 2006. With this long wait for a return to Leicestershire it’s fair to say this gig is overdue.

Bring Me The Horizon and Disturbed are also among the first wave of acts announced for the anniversary show.

Bring Me The Horizon will headline on Friday, with Slipknot closing the festival on Sunday.

The festival has been an icon for metal fans from across the UK and far afield since its first year ever way back in 2003. This first festival was just a two-day event and was slated to be headlined by Iron Maiden and Limp Bizkit, although the latter pulled out and was replaced by Audio slave.

Download 2023 takes place from Thursday 8 June to Sunday 11 June and will have four jam-packed days of music.

Which bands were on the 10th anniversary of Download?

The 2013 show was the 10th anniversary of Download, and fans were treated to three legendary headliners. Slipknot, Iron Maiden and Rammstein topped the bill, with other big names including Queens of the Stone Age, Motorhead and Bullet for my Valentine.

Who played at Download 2022?

Last year’s festival was the first full-scale edition of Download since 2019 due to the coronavirus pandemic. KISS, Iron Maiden and Biffy Clyro were the three headliners while Welsh reggae metal group Skindred, Rise Against and A Day To Remember also played memorable sets.

How to get tickets

The announcement was made just hours after early bird tickets were removed from sale. Tickets will go on sale again at 10 a.m. Thursday, November 10. This will include weekend tickets for both four and five camping nights. The tickets will go back on sale until Ticketmaster
