HUDDERSFIELD band Evile have been added to legendary Download festival lineup.
The metal band will take to the stage alongside rock giants including System Of A Down, Bullet For My Valentine and Def Leppard, who have just been announced as third headliners for the Donington festival in June.
Evile guitarist, Ol Drake, said: “If there’s one festival we’ve always wanted to play it’s Download. I remember watching footage of Sepultura playing Donington many years ago and wishing we could play there one day, and now we are!
“It’s a huge honour. Come down and have some fast, loud and heavy fun with Evile!”
Drummer Ben Carter, added: “We’re both honoured and excited to be making our first appearance at Download this year.
“Donington has been the spiritual home of rock and metal for so many years, now finally we can make our mark there and become part of that legacy.
“I’ve attended Download in the past and seen many bands perform on the smaller stages and go on to huge success and I think that’s what Download can do for a band.
“There’s something about the place that’s special, so we’re all so eager to get on stage and have our Download moment!”
