Download festival adds Steel Panther and HIM to line-up


Steel Panther

Steel Panther are one of the latest additions to this summer's Download festival.

The tongue-in-cheek rockers play the second stage on the final day of the Donington event.

Organisers have bumped the LA band further up the line-up after their crowd-pleasing performance on the third stage in 2009.

The festival takes place from 11-13 June with AC/DC, Rage Against The Machine and Aerosmith headlining.

Others acts announced include Saxon, HIM and Airbourne with day tickets for the event on sale now.
