Download Festival 2017 first announcement

It's that time of year again, the nights are drawing in, you wake up, it's dark. You get home from your 9-5, it's dark. What better way to shrug off those winter blues than with the first announcement of the legendary Download Festival, including, surprisingly, all three headliners in one hit. It's like Christmas has come early! Let's take a look at the announced bands.

Headliners this year are the mighty System Of A Down , Biffy Clyro and the legendary Aerosmith , all great bands in their own right. All previous bands returning to the hallow grounds of Castle Donington to once again plant their rightful flag in the centre of that field.

Other bands announced across the three day mudfest are thrash titans Slayer , Rage Against The Machine offshoot Prophets Of Rage , alongside Rob Zombie , Five Finger Death Punch , AFI , Of Mice and Men, Sleeping With Sirens, Motionless In White, Simple Plan, Every Time I Die, The Story So Far and Fozzy
