Avenged Sevenfold to headline Download Festival 2018

Avenged Sevenfold have been confirmed as the second headliner for next summer's Download Festival. 

The hard rockers, who released their latest album The Stage at the end of 2016, join Ozzy Osbourne in headlining next summer's event. 

The festival will take place from June 8th to June 10th in 2018, with Avenged kicking things off on June 8th and Osbourne closing the festival on June 10th. A final headliner for the event will be confirmed in the coming weeks. 

Avenged Sevenfold said of the booking: “We are more than honoured to be a part of this legendary show and line up.  Being asked to headline Download for the second time is a career highlight.  We would like to thank our UK A7X family”

Download Festival’s Promoter, Andy Copping added: "A real career highlight of mine was giving Avenged Sevenfold their first ever UK festival headline slot, and I’m thrilled to welcome them back. You don’t often see bands like Avenged Sevenfold top the charts, but much like seeing them live, they’re not to be underestimated.”
