As we build up to what could be the best Download bill yet we’re taking a look at the must-see bands at the must-see rock and metal festival of the summer.

And next up are Sunday night headliners and event closers Linkin Park. If their UK arena tour is anything to go by expect a massive set from a truly sensational band! 

BAND: LINKIN PARK

WHEN: Sunday June 12

WHERE: Main Stage

YOU KNOW THEM BECAUSE… Chester Bennington and his buddies were at the heart of the nu-metal scene a decade ago before reinventing themselves as U2’s enormodome successors

GUARANTEED ANTHEM: In The End

TOILET BREAK: Robot Boy (dull filler from A Thousand Suns)

LOOK OUT FOR: A guitar solo or heavy riff – LP favour sleek synths and clever percussion in the wake of their latest hit record

ESSENTIAL ALBUM: Hybrid Theory

OUT NOW: A Thousand Suns
