A number of acts have been added to the monster line up at Download Festival 2017. Amongst them are Good Charlotte and Sum 41 who were at the forefront of the pop punk revolution that dominated the 00s, delivering scuzzy sing-a-longs like 'Lifestyles Of The Rich & Famous' (below) and 'In Too Deep' resepectively. 

Metal maestros Mastodon join the bill and return to Download for the first time since their main stage appearance in 2013, while Crown The Empire will bring their latest studio effort, Retrograde, to a UK crowd next summer following their inclusion. 

There's also slots for Download favourites Opeth along with pummelling metal rockers Alter Bridge, punk poets The King Blues and San Diego shredders Pierce The Veil

They join headliners Aerosmith, System Of A Down and Biffy Clyro on the Download Festival line up along with heaps more hard rock heroes. Grab your Download Festival 2017 tickets from the box below.
