    The previously announced Hey! Hello have also moved from their Zippo Encore Stage slot to headline the fourth stage on Saturday.

    Corrosion of Conformity’s Pepper Keenan said of the band’s along-awaited return: “Super stoked about getting back to download with COC, always an honour. It's been waaaaay to long. Up the f***in hammers!”

    Carcass commented: “We’re genuinely excited to finally get to play Castle Donington after all these years - maybe this time without rolling Landrovers and cracking shoulder bones on the journey there (a LONG story!).

    “We hope to see some of you at a loose end, with no one better to watch at CARCASS’ ONLY UK festival appearance this Summer!”

    The fresh wave of acts join the strongest Download festival line-up in years that boasts headliners Slipknot, Muse and KISS plus Judas Priest, Faith No More, Motley Crue, Slash, Black Stone Cherry, Thunder and many more.
