Juliette and the Licks and more added to Download '16

Posted by MAK on 21/04/16

Download Festival is just under two months away, so the organisers have teased a few more names that will appear this year.

The recently reformed Juliette and the Licks will be performing on the Zippo Encore stage on the Saturday. Another big return would British metal powerhouse Raging Speedhorn, who are returning to Download for the first time in over ten years. The Amorettes are Download newcomers with their punk-tinged rock’n’roll.

Also added is Supergroup Wearing Scars, who are a mash-up of veteran metal bands, including Sacred Mother Tongue and Mutiny Within. The Wild Lies are back after performing last year. Nu-metallers From Ashes to New are another band making their Download debut. Other notable acts are Skinny Lister, The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing, Inglorious, RavenEye, In Search of Sun and Puppy.

It's not just new bands that have been added to Download either as WWE are sending over their development brand NXT to entertain the festival goers. NXT features the future stars of the wrestling industry, including Finn Balor and Bayley. With the amount of "YES" chants that have flooded the festival before, this is likely to go down incredibly well.

The new acts will join festival headliners Rammstein, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden along with the rest of the lineup already announced. You can see the full lineup so far here.
