Marily Manson and ZZ Top For Download Festival

ZZ Top and Marilyn Manson have been added to the bill for this year’s Download Festival.

They join a lineup that so far includes, The Prodigy, Def Leppard, Slipknot, Motley Crue, Pendulum and Korn.

Taking place between the 12th and 14th June, the festival is now in its seventh year.

“This year more than ever before, Download Festival celebrates the history of Donington and all that is rock,” said festival promoter Andy Copping. “With acts such as Slipnot, The Prodigy and Motley Crue already confirmed to play, this just shows how varied and diverse the rock genre can be and we are delighted to reflect this with our 2009 line-up.”

Tickets for Download are on sale now.
