We’ve already found out the Iron Maiden will be playing at Download Festival 2016  and we’re excited to announce that the second headliners are none other than the heavy metal kings themselves, Black Sabbath!

The band, who hail from Birmingham, and are led by the legendary Ozzy Osbourne, announced earlier this month that they would be bringing their new and final tour, the aptly named The End, to Europe following dates in North America, Australia and New Zealand.

Fellow founding members Tony Iommi, who was awarded the Gibson Les Paul Award at yesterday’s Q Awards, and Geezer Butler will also be joining Osbourne on the tour which will of course include the Saturday headline spot at Download Festival 2016.

Sign up here to the TicketAlarm to be alerted when tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 23rd October and make sure you keep your eyes peeled for even more exciting Download announcements!
