Q.O.T.S.A, Motorhead & Alice in Chains Announced for 2013 Download Festival

Q.O.T.S.A, Motorhead  &  Alice in Chains Announced for 2013 Download Festival -

The 2013 Download Festival has announced more acts set to perform at next year's edition of the 3-day metal fiesta.

The already impressive line-up now looks even better with Alice in Chains, Queens of the Stone Age, Motorhead, 30 Seconds to Mars, the Gaslight Anthem, HIM and A Day to Remember being added to the bill. They join previously announced headliners Slipknot, Iron Maiden and Rammstein.

Next year will mark the first appearance for desert rock titans Q.O.T.S.A, who are currently working on their new album.

Also rumoured to appear are glam-rock legends KISS, who are reported to be headlining the second stage at the festival.

Download Festival organiser Andy Copping has said of Slipknot's 2013 headline slot:

"Slipknot's last appearance at Download has gone down in the festival's history as one of the best ever headline sets. God knows what they'll have in store for 2013 but I'm looking forward to seeing how they'll top the last one."

Next year's Download Festival will take place from June 14-16 2013 at Donington Park.
