Download has announced the details of a sister festival, in France. Taking place the same weekend as the event in Donington Park, the imaginatively titled Download France feature much of the same lineup.
Both Iron Maiden and Rammstein will be making the trip across the channel alongside Deftones, Megadeth and Korn. However Download Frances also offers Biffy Clyro (who are currently recording their seventh album), Volbeat, Rival Sons and Ghost across the three day festival. A glimpse of what’s yet to be announced at Download England (I guess that’s what we’ll have to call it now) or maybe just some bonus, French treats.
Download Frances takes place 10th-12th June at the Hippodrome De Longchamp in Paris. Tickets are on sale now.
