Download gets worse year on year, three old washed up headliners that will obviously draw in crowds but are no where near their former glory.

Who do you think should headline instead? Think Black Sabbath should be up there because they've just reformed, not so much the other two.

And seeing as they were mentioned - did anyone catch Metallica and Lou Reed on Jools Holland last week? Just awful.

I can see the whole Black Sabbath appeal, but I watched Jools Holland it was absolutely dreadful. I honestly can't suggest a headliner, but for the past few years it's been mainly classic rock bands; Maiden, Kiss, Judas Priest, AC/DC etc, it's predictable who will play.

I get your point, Mastodon are the only band that sprung to mind. I suppose The Prodigy are a bit of a "gamble" but they've been around so many times before...
