And fans of rock and metal can’t afford to be without our annual guide to the must-see bands on both sites.
Today it’s the turn of alt rock pioneers System Of A Down.
Serj Tankian and the boys have been away for far too long and it’s a good bet they’ll be the perfect warm-up for Green Day.
Band: System Of A Down
Where: Main Stage
When: Friday August 23 (Leeds August 24)
Who: Game changers and boundary pushers peddling a style of alt rock and angular metal much missed on these shores
Why: System are very much on and off and while they’re on it would be a foolish decision to miss them
What: A plethora of familiar anthems from 2005’s Hypnotize and Mezmerize plus the pick of breakthrough album Toxicity
Wait for: Chop Suey!
Watch out for: A bout of political posturing from Serj – he never misses the chance to make his point
