Led Zeppelin Approached For Download
Download chief tried to book the dream bill for this year’s festival...
Download chief Andy Copping has told Xfm that Led Zeppelin were approached to headline this year’s festival. Copping admitted that having AC/DC and Zeppelin on the same bill would constitute his dream bill.
“If I could get Led Zeppelin to play at Download, it would be phenomenal”, said the festival chief. “If that’s no going to happen, I’m more than happy with what we’ve got”.
"Every single festival in the world approaches Led Zeppelin or their management to get them to pay at their festival. Loads of money gets thrown out. It’s not what they want to do at the moment and that’s fine. They probably never will, but everyone has a stab at it."
Download has also confirmed twenty new bands for this year’s bash, including Steel Panther, HIM, Saxon, Airbourne, Coheed & Cambria, Hellyeah, The Blackout, Cinderella, Dillinger Escape Plan and 36 Crazyfists.
