Three rock powerhouses will once again reunite for a monster weekend in June, this time bringing the very pioneers of British heavy metal in for the Sunday finale.

Black Sabbath will share the 2018 Download festival main stage from June 8 until June 10 with classic rockers Guns N’ Roses, complete with original guitarist Slash, and the heavier, more progressive metalheads Avenged Sevenfold.

The diversity continues on the Zippo Encore stage with You Me At Six performing in between Baby Metal and Body Count feat. Ice T.

Tickets start at £200 for an adult ticket and three nights standard camping, available from the event website at:
