Download 2024: Limp Bizkit added to Download Festival bill, here's the full line up for the festival and how to get tickets
Download 2024 have added Limp Bizkit to an already exciting line up for next year's event. Here's everything you need to know about the Festival and who is headlining Download in 2024.
Located in the East Midlands, last year's mammoth four day festival saw tickets sell out for the first time as rockers and metalheads flocked to see the likes of Bring Me The Horizon, Metallica and Slipknot - and while it has reverted back to its normal three day event, the line up announcement is sure to please!
Originally borne out of the 'Monsters Of Rock' festivals during the 1980 and 1990s, the festival was rebranded in 2003 and had the likes of Limp Bizkit, Audioslave and Marilyn Manson on the bill and has only grown in popularity in the 21 years that have followed.
Now sponsored by drinks company Liquid Death, Download Festival announced its headliners and its first batch of bands on the line up today (November 7) as limited early bird tickets went on sale.

Download 24 - what is quiet camping?
As per the information on the ticketing site, quiet campaign is described as follows: "Quiet Camping is in a separate field in the main campsite area. These tickets are suitable for families, younger festival goers, or anyone who would prefer to have a break from the 24-hour party atmosphere of the standard campsites."
However, as someone who tried quiet camping last year, I must advise while people around you stay quiet all night, noise can still be heard from the DJ tent - so bare this in mind if you're a light sleeper and take a look at the other options available on Download's site.
