Soundgarden, Biffy Clyro, You Me At Six, and Tenacious D are just some of the latest bands to be confirmed for the 10th anniversary of the Kerrang!-sponsored Download festival, which is set to take place at Donington Park between June 8-10.
"We are beyond psyched to play Download 2012," says Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron. "It will be a huge year for the band and what better way to celebrate than bring it all to our UK family at Download? See you there!"
"We'd like to congratulate the Download Festival on their booking of Tenacious D," adds Jack Black and Kyle Gass in a tongue-in-cheek joint statement. "It's a huge day... a huge day for the Festival. It's just another day for Tenacious D."
Also confirmed for the festival are dubstep rockers Chase & Status Live.
"We're excited to be playing such a huge festival," says Will Kennard. "It's our first time at Download and it's gonna be absolute carnage!"
