The rumors were true guys, System Of A Down will be headlining next years Download Festival!

After a five-year hiatus the band will reform for one of the most talked about performances of next year. This will be SOAD’s third appearance at the legendary festival and rumors suggest they will be headlining the Saturday. This is massive news and it’s going to take another huge announcement to take the spotlight from this quartet.

System are believed to be playing a bunch of other festivals and shows around the time of Download, but this is the big one for the UK.

Avenged Sevenfold have also been confirmed for 2011. This will also be the Californian metallers third appearance.

After recent success on their UK headline tour it will be great to catch A7X’s brutal live show in the festival atmosphere.

Tickets go on pre-sale from 9am December 3, but Download subscribers can get their hands on tickets a day earlier, 9am December 2.

    Hmm I don’t know about Avenged Sevenfold but I would LOVE to see System live, would take me right back to my youth. Excited to see who else will be headlining… do you know of any other rumored acts for this year?

      There are countless rumours depending on what website or forum you read. But a large portion of the rumoured bands are playing other festivals around the Download period, hence why everybody is presuming they will be stopping by. I have heard Foo Fighters, Parkway Drive, Linkin Park, In Flames, Lacuna Coil, The Gaslight Anthem, Sick Of It All etc. You will never know for sure until announced, but it is fun to guess and things. Who are you hoping for?

        I don’t think this year will top last year, Aerosmith and Rage are pretty much my perfect headliners. I wouldn’t be surprised if good ol’ Rob Zombie takes to the stage given the fact that he’s touring the UK for the first time in like 15 years or summa. None of those particularly appeal greatly to me but like I said before, even if I’m not too keen on the headliners I will still go to Download! And System will be amazin’. Keep us posted!
