Ozzy Osbourne has been confirmed as the first headliner for 2018's Download Festival. Taking place from 8th - 10th June at the spiritual home of rock in Donington Park, Leicestershire, the Black Sabbath front man's set will come as part of his farewell tour.
Ozzy Osbourne is the the first of its three heavyweight headliners to be announced. Over one hundred bands expected to appear during the weekend, and tickets available now from the official Download site.
No stranger to the hallowed grounds of Donington, The Prince Of Darkness Ozzy Osbourne will headline the closing Sunday night. Having previously graced the main stage in previous years fronting Black Sabbath, this will be his first ever Download headline solo appearance.
Download Festival’s promoter, Andy Copping says: “We’re unbelievably excited to have Ozzy as one of the headliners next year. Already hailing from the midlands, Ozzy Osbourne is no stranger to Download, and after Black Sabbath closed the Saturday night of the festival in 2016, how could I not ask The Prince of Darkness to come back all on his own? The Download family are without a shadow of a doubt, in for a treat.”
Download Festival is the home of rock music and takes place on the sacred grounds of Donington Park, which have been associated with rock since the eighties. The festival attracts icons of rock and metal to its main stage, plus some of the hottest new acts in the world. AC/DC, KISS, Metallica, Black Sabbath, The Prodigy, Rage Against The Machine, Slipknot, Linkin Park and many more have all headlined its main stage and in 2018, fans can see the Miracle Man, Ozzy Osbourne.
