Well they announce the headliner in 2 days, I think this year looks good but I am sure there are other threads about it.

I think it will be either Metallica or AC/DC, they are the 2 big contenders for it this year. Metallica played every other year but skipped last year at download, AC/DC have always been rumoured to play but never have.

I would like it to be Metallica as I would love to see them live, AC/DC would be good also but it wouldn't be as good imo, but I have a gut feeling it will be AC/DC

I chose Metallica because ACDC has sucked since their first song and never changed. That's worse than getting progressively worse throughout your career, and even though they have been falling a long time Metallica has never reached the point of being as bad as ACDC. In fact they could get worse for the next 30 years and still not be ACDC bad.

if Metallica headline. that will be the only reason i go this year. the lineup so far doesn't interest me in the slightest, maybe its just me... it would be nice to see The Haunted play download as well....

Dude, I think I would know, Trivium invented Thrash, Metallica are lucky they got as far as they did piggy-backing off of Trivium's signature style.

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.

Not AC/DC. At least i hope not.
Think about it, download have without doubt gone for the "old" theme this year. If they add one more "classic" band, chances are people will get pissed off. So AC/DC will NOT be announced. Metallica are whoring themselves to Sonisphere, so it wont be them either.

My best guess: Blink 182.

Faith No More.
Anounced they're playing European festivals and the organisers of download have already said they want to book them.

It definatly won't be Metallica and I doubt it'll be AC/DC. I'm really pissed I can't go, I have an A-Level exam on the Friday apprently .

AC/DC I think are playing Paris that day, and Metallica are booked on Sonisphere, and the organiser's making all the bands sign UK-exclusive contracts top appear on the fest.
The rig:
Gibson SG faded special -> Marshall MG 50/100 (working on a valve amp)
