In Mind Blowing news it seems that Metallica and Lou Reed are set to be the first announced headliner of Download Festival 2012.
The Internet speculation has gone into overdrive this afternoon, being fuelled by both Andy Copping (Download Festival booker) and Zane Lowe with some carefully phrased tweeting
Maverick_AC: Just one big fuck off headliner tomorrow but with a killer twist…I look forward to the meh’s … I miss them
Although the news wont officially be announced untill 7:30pm tonight on the Zane Lowe show on Radio 1, it makes sense as Lars Ulrich is also a guest on the show.
zanelowe: Lars from Metallica makes a big announcement on tonight’s show after 7. Many of you think you know the whole story. But there is more…
What do you guys think? Would you go to download to see that? What if Andy Coppings tweet meant Korn and Skrillex?
