Ozzy Osbourne announced as first headliner for Download Festival 2018

Download Festival, the world's premier rock and metal event, today announced rock icon Ozzy Osbourne as the first of three heavyweight headliners across the weekend of 8-10 June 2018, at the spiritual home of rock, Donington Park.

Being no stranger to the hallowed grounds of Donington, Ozzy Osbourne will close the festival on the Sunday night. Having previously graced the stage as part of Black Sabbath in 2016, this will be his first ever Download solo headline slot. The Download slot will also form part of the final world tour announcement that was shared this morning.

Andy Copping, head promoter of Download Festival says:

"We're unbelievably excited to have Ozzy as one of the headliners next year. Already hailing from the Midlands, Ozzy Osbourne is no stranger to Download, and after Black Sabbath closed the festival in 2016, how could I not ask the Prince of Darkness to come back all on his own? The Download family are without a shadow of a doubt, in for a treat"

For tickets, further information and all things Download visit Tickets are available at the festival website.
