Megadeth Confirms That They Will Join KISS And Iron Maiden For The Upcoming Download Festival

Megadeth’s official Instagram account posted the poster of Download Festival which will be back on June 10, 2022. The band shared that they will join legendary metal bands KISS and Iron Maiden at the Festival.

Megadeth guitarist Dave Mustaine shared the name of their latest album title ‘The Sick, The Dying And The Dead’ while he was talking with a fan via Zoom as the part of Rock’N’Roll Fantasy Camp. Also, he added that the name of the album could possibly change because he tended to change names four or five times during the recording before its final version.

The fans are not only curious about the upcoming album but also the dates of  Megadeth’s new tours and concerts. Megadeth announced that one of them will be Download Festival. The Festival was canceled because of the global pandemic in 2021. But, the organization has exciting news for 2022.

The festival added over 70 artists to the line-up. KISS, Iron Maiden and Biffy Clyro will be the headliners of the festival. Deftones and Korn will also join the festival. The Pretty Reckless, Rise Against, Black Labels, and many groups will perform on the main stage.

Grammy award winner thrash metal band Megadeth will be the headliner of the second stage. The band announced their headlining in Download Festival via their Instagram account.
