The Prodigy are confirmed as the third headliner for the mighty Download Festival on Friday 8 June 2012, setting the tone to one of the biggest line ups in Download history and celebrating the festival’s 10th anniversary.
After notching up over 25 million record sales and selling out venues across the world, the masters of synth punk, The Prodigy are back doing what they do best and bringing their mind-blowing set to Donington for 2012.
Expect plenty of classics from their incredible catalogue alongside some new tracks fresh from the studio.
This will be the third time the band has played Download and the first time they’ll play the main stage.
The Prodigy will join headliners Metallica (Saturday 9 June) and Black Sabbath (Sunday 10 June) for one of the biggest Download Festivals in recent memory.
This year's line-up saw headline sets from Def Leppard, Linkin Park and a reunited System of A Down.
Andy Copping, VP of Promotions at Live Nation said, “We’re very excited to welcome The Prodigy back to Donington, it’s great to have them here for the third time and this time headlining the main stage.
"The crowds always go mental when The Prodigy are in town. The band never fail to impress, and it’s going to be one hell of a weekend.”
