News: Ozzy Osbourne first headline act announced for Download 2018


Bat worrying rock legend Ozzy Osbourne is the first headline act to be announced for Download 2018.  No stranger to the hallowed grounds of Donington, The Prince Of Darkness will headline the Sunday night. Having graced the main stage in previous years fronting Black Sabbath, this will be his first ever Download headline solo appearance. The Download Festival set comes as part of Ozzy Osbourne’s final  world tour announcement this morning.

Download Festival’s promoter Andy Copping had this to say about having Ozzy at the festival:

“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 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 will take place on June 8th – 10th 2018.
