Rammstein - Rammstein join Download line-up

Rammstein will perform at Download 2013.

The German industrial metal group have been announced as the second headliner of the three-day rock event - held at Donington Park in Derbyshire, England - which will take place in June next year.

Festival organiser Andy Copping, said: ''We're very excited to welcome Rammstein to Donington for the very first time.

''They are an epic live act and a perfect Sunday headliner to cap off what is shaping up to be yet another fantastic Download festival.''

When asked how they felt about being involved with the festival, Rammstein replied with their typical dry sense of humour, saying: ''It's only a festival, not a moon landing.''

It has also been confirmed that rock legends Iron Maiden will be headlining on Saturday June 15, marking the 15th anniversary of the bands first ever performance at Donington Park in 1988.

Frontman Bruce Dickinson told the Daily Star newspaper: ''It's exciting, we played the biggest Donington 25 years ago when 107,000 fans turned up. It's brilliant to be returning.

''It's a rock festival. The great thing about Donington is that you can make as much noise as you like.''

The festival will run from June 14 to 16 next year. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 28 September from www.downloadfestival.co.uk
