Download Fest To Pay Tribute To Fallen Rock Legends.

Download Festival has announced it’s plans to pay tribute to rock and metal artists who’ve passed away over the past year.

Download Festival organizers have today announced that they will be paying tribute to rock legends and personalities Ronnie James Dio, Paul Gray(Slipknot), Stuart Cable (Killing For Company), Pete Steele (Type O Negative), Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan (Avenged Sevenfold), Mike Alexander (Evile) plus ‘Monsters Of Rock’ co-founder Maurice Jones at this weekend’s festival, all of whom recently and tragically passed away.

On Friday night, a special tribute video to all the above will be screened at 8pm on the Main Stage after Them Crooked Vultures’ set (and before AC/DC take to their Stage) for fans to pay their respects and to mark the loss of such treasured icons of the rock and metal world.

Thanks Cheryl for this to us!
