As reported last month; Download Festival Promoter, Andy Copping, mentioned that Linkin Park were in the final stages of being booked as headliners for this years festival at the time of Chester’s passing. And only a few days ago Mike Shinoda said that he was confident that Linkin Park will continue.

“I have every intention on continuing with LP, and the guys feel the same. We have a lot of rebuilding to do, and questions to answer, so it’ll take time. “

Is there still a possibility that Linkin Park could play this year or in 2019? Maybe another special tribute show as they preformed in California last year. Judging by how successful their performances were in previously years, it is quite possible. Well have to wait and see.

The past two WWE’s NXT has had their own tent with multiple shows daily along with wrestler meet and greets, Q & A sessions. No announcement for this year yet. But with as successful it has been in the past, they are highly expected to return again this year.

If you can make it to Europe to see some amazing festivals, this is a great way to start your summer. Tickets and 5 day camping passes are available now. https://downloadfestival.co.uk/
