**Breaking News** - Monday 15th February
Aerosmith and Rage Against The Machine added to the Download 2010 line-up
This statement posted tonight in the UK at the Download festival site:
Legendary multi-million selling rockers and one of the most popular and influential political bands in contemporary music set to headline this year’s Download festival.
You want more headliners? You got it. We can confirm that as well as the already-announced AC/DC, the other two headliners on the Download 2010 are none other than one of America’s greatest Rock ‘N’ Roll bands Aerosmith (With, believe it or not, Steven Tyler) and hip-hop punkers Rage Against The Machine.
Celebrating 40 years at the top, Aerosmith will return to the main stage at Donington Park for the first time in 16 years.
Last playing as headliners of the Donington Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1990 and 1994, Steven Tyler, Joe Perry et al return with their legendary juggernaut performance, one that has earned them the title of best-selling American rock band of all time.
Rage Against The Machine, who in a storm of publicity and heavy campaigning scored the UK Christmas No. 1 single last year, will for the very first time bring their sheer power of political alternative, hip-hop, punk rock to the festival’s main stage.
To this day, Rage Against The Machine, who were presented the Hall Of Fame Award by Kerrang! Magazine in 2008, remain one of the most popular and influential political bands in contemporary music.
The excitement doesn’t end there though Download fans, as we’ve got five more bands to announce later on tonight (Monday), so stay posted for more exciting news soon!
