Linkin Park to play Download 2011
Linkin Park have been confirmed to play the 2011 Download Festival.
The US rockers, whose fourth album A Thousand Suns went to number two in the UK, will join System Of A Down and Grammy award-winning musician-director Rob Zombie at Donington Park in June next year.
Frontman Chester Bennington said: "We are very excited to be playing Download again next year. It's one of the best festivals in the world and it's always an honour to play in front of such a great crowd. We can't wait!"
Live Nation's Andy Copping added: "It's great to have Linkin Park back at Download next year. They've always put on a great show and following the success of their recent sold out UK tour, it was essential to have them at Download, where they will deliver their full-on live show."
Tickets for the Download Festival 2011, plus VIP packages, are on sale now from www.downloadfestival.co.uk, with prices remaining the same as they were in 2010.
