Opeth, Phil Anselmo, Black Label Society and many more added to Download Festival 2014

The organizers of Download Festival 2014 mean business – they’ve just announced a lot more participants, confirming artists such as Opeth, Phil Anselmo and the Illegals, Black Label Society, Bowling For Soup, Flogging Molly, Bad Religion, the BossHoss, Skid Row, Tesla, Bury Tomorrow, Danger Danger, Powerman 5000, Huntress, the Graveltones and Anti-Mortem.

The headliners had been previously announced: Avenged Sevenfold, Linkin Park and Aerosmith. Rob Zombie, Fall Out Boy and Alter Bridge were announced as the headliners’ main supports. It’s interesting to me how you can mix in Rob Zombie and Avenged Sevenfold with Fall Out Boy… but let’s just say that the festival is really diverse.

“This is shaping up to be the most diverse Download yet – a real tableau of the past, present and future of rock and metal,” said promoter Andy Copping. “You can see that in our headliners; Aerosmith, Linkin Park and Avenged Sevenfold, and in today’s announcement where we combine such renowned acts as Bowling for Soup and Opeth with newer acts like Bury Tomorrow.”
