Download Festival’s Andy Copping said of the 2024 bill: “After our unbelievable 20th anniversary celebrations last year, we couldn’t be more excited about what DLXXI has in store. This year we have two brand new headliners in the form of Queens Of The Stone Age and Fall Out Boy, as well as the mighty Avenged Sevenfold and a whole host of huge names that make every second of Download Festival memorable. I can’t wait to join the fans there – it is our home.

“With first time headliners and our first headline partner with Liquid Death we are embracing the evolution of Download Festival. We have the best and friendliest community together and we can’t wait to celebrate the next 20 years of Download with you all.”

Speaking to Rolling Stone UK last year about the festival’s legacy and their award win, Copping said: “When we first started out, we were without a doubt the first festival in the world that really embraced its audience in the sense of properly creating a community. It was really important to us that the Download community really feel that we’ve got this kind of family ethos and that they did have a voice.”
