Download's Andy Copping said of the 2024 festival (as per BBC News): "This year we have two brand new headliners in the form of Queens Of The Stone Age and Fall Out Boy, as well as the mighty Avenged Sevenfold and a whole host of huge names that make every second of Download Festival memorable.

"I can't wait to join the fans there - it is our home. We have the best and friendliest community together and we can't wait to celebrate the next 20 years of Download with you all."

"We are super excited to be playing Download for the third time," Sevenfold's Synyster Gates said.

"As they say, the third time is a charm, so hopefully we get it right this time! We appreciate everyone coming back and joining in the madness and the fun."
