Download Festival organizer Andy Copping recently spoke to Kerrang! on what the future headliners of the festival could be.

This year’s Download Festival included System Of A Down, KISS and Iron Maiden as headliners, but it was canceled due to COVID-19.

So the organizer talked about which bands could be headlining the Download Festival in the coming years.

Andy said: “That’s quite easy. Bring Me The Horizon, Architects, Parkway Drive, Five Finger Death Punch“.

On bands who haven’t headlined Download yet: Paramore, Fall Out Boy, twenty one pilots… We haven’t had Foo Fighters, blink-182 or Green Day headline Download. Of the new and contemporary acts… Frank Carter, even! Just seeing Frank’s rise over the years has been incredible. Ghost without question will be a headliner in future years.”

He added: “We need everyone in the industry to get behind these acts. It’s not just festival promoters, it’s yourselves in the media, the labels, and without doubt the fans – you’ve got to get behind these acts. Even if it’s not somebody that you particularly like personally, to keep things alive we’ve got to be bringing bands through, that’s why I did it with Slipknot, why I did it with Biffy Clyro, why I did it with Avenged Sevenfold, and there’ll be other bands in the next three-to-four years that we’ll bring through.”
