Iron Maiden Broadcast Live From Download

Iron Maiden are to broadcast their Download headline performance live this Sunday (June 10).

The free live stream via Ironmaiden.com will give fans unable to attend the rock fest an opportunity to watch the band's fourth Download appearance.

Maiden's manager, Rob Smallwood has said that Bruce Dickinson and co decided to stream the performance due to the limited number of shows they are playing this summer. He says: "It will be a great way for our fans in territories we are not playing to have means of seeing this show".

In addition, frontman Bruce Dickinson will broadcast reports from the festival including interviews with bands backstage, in his BBC6 Music Radio show on Saturday June 9 between 9pm and midnight, the night before Maiden's festival closing set.

Other festival goodies include an exclusive podcast via the official website... Go to downloadfestival.co.uk here for interviews with Maiden, Linkin Park, Machine Head, Enter Shikari and Gallows
