KISS, Iron Maiden and System of a Down have been announced as the headliners for next year's Download Festival in Leicestershire.

The rock festival, held at Donington Park, is billed as the last ever UK show for KISS, after launched their End of the Road tour earlier this year.

Frontman Gene Simmons said: "I’ve said it before, Download Festival audiences are the best. They are up for whatever is thrown at them.

"KISS is going to come fully prepared to rock their world in 2020 to say Thank You for always showing up for us."

Download 2020 will be held from June 12 to 14.

Also on the line-up are Disturbed, Korn, Deftones and The Offspring - who are likely to be playing hits not only from the nine studio albums they've released so far through the course of their 35-year career, but also their much-anticipated 10th album, which is tentatively due for release next year.
