More good news today! None other than "the incredible" Linkin Park will be the second headliner of the 2011 edition of Download Festival, set to take place June 10-12 at Donington Park. And if that wasn't enough, also Rob Zombie has been added to the line-up today. Earlier this month the organization already confirmed the appearance of "the mighty" Avenged Sevenfold, with System Of A Down as the absolute headliners of the festival.

Here's the accompanying press release:

"With the boards brimming with activity over this evening's news that Linkin Park have been confirmed as the second headliner for Download 2011, we've just added one more artist to the bill that's sent the hype machine in to overdrive!

We're thrilled to announce that Grammy award winning musician/producer and director Rob Zombie will perform at next year's Download - an incredible 16 years since he last played the Donington Park site with his then band White Zombie.

Rob Zombie founded the metal band White Zombie and has since carved a successful career as a horror producer and director, notably for movies House Of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects. He released his new album Hellbilly Deluxe 2 earlier this year to huge critical acclaim.

Fans have been begging us for years to get Rob on the bill - and we're pleased to finally answer their call."

And here's the comment of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington: "We are very excited to be playing Download again next year. It's one of the best festivals in the world and it's always an honour to play in front of such a great crowd. We can't wait!"

Since forming in 1996, Linkin Park have gone on to win two Grammy awards and sold over 50 million records worldwide, and they recently released their fourth studio album A Thousand Suns.

I would personally love to see LP live. Besides, alternative bands have an ensured place at Download Festival, so I don't get your point...

Anyways. Better Linkin Park than... Buffy... Biffy?

Hell yes. I've already started my car wash/lemonade stand business early this year.

EDIT: Maybe P.O.D will get on board, then that would be one hell of a fest to compete with.

Why MS cares about pop festivals? they pay you for that, don't they?

Add a bunch of metalcore bands and kill this festival stone dead.

In the days of The Monsters Of Rock this was a good festival, now it is an embarrassment.
