Despite the final festivals of 2017 coming to a close with the arrival of the finale that is Damnation this weekend just past, we turn our gaze once more to the future of 2018 and Download Festival and what a way to kick this year off!
For the first time ever, the legendary Ozzy Osbourne will be closing out the festival on Sunday. Despite having performed many a time with Black Sabbath this is the solo artist’s first time to headline the festival. I don’t know about you guys but this is sure to be a huge treat, imagine hearing the likes of “Crazy Train” or “Mr Crowley” in the hallowed grounds that are Donington’s.
Personally I cannot wait and I’ve got every faith that this year could be one of Download Festival’s best, lets just hope the weather holds out like it did this year! Festival organiser Andy Copping had this to say :
“We’re unbelievably excited to have Ozzy as one of the headliners next year. Already hailing from the midlands, Ozzy Osbourne is no stranger to Download, and after Black Sabbath closed the festival in 2016, how could I not ask The Prince of Darkness to come back all on his own? The Download family are without a shadow of a doubt, in for a treat.”
