Ozzy Osbourne is the first bill-topper for Download 2018

He's headlining the Sunday.
Ozzy Osbourne is first headliner to be announced for Download Festival 2018.

The set will mark Ozzy’s first time topping the bill solo, having headlined and played many times with Black Sabbath.

The event will run from 8th – 10th June at Donington Park in Leicestershire, with tickets on sale now from downloadfestival.co.uk/tickets.

“We’re unbelievably excited to have Ozzy as one of the headliners next year,” says promoter Andy Copping. “Already hailing from the midlands, Ozzy Osbourne is no stranger to Download, and after Black Sabbath closed the festival in 2016, how could I not ask The Prince of Darkness to come back all on his own? The Download family are without a shadow of a doubt, in for a treat.”

With Ozzy playing on Sunday, headliners for Friday and Saturday will be announced shortly. Last year’s headliners were System of a Down, Biffy Clyro and Aerosmith.
