Feb. 17 — Independent hard rock act Antisaint is going to get some major exposure during this summer’s festival season.
The band has been added to the lineup for this year’s Download Festival. The announcement was made Friday. The 2023 Download Festival is scheduled to be held June 8-11 at Donington Park, UK.
The band joins the likes of Halestorm, Alter Bridge, Bad Wolves, Avatar, and The Warning as the newest acts to join the annual festival’s lineup. Antisaint is scheduled to perform June 10 at the festival, along with Clutch, Ice Nine Kills, Motionless in White and Metallica, among so many other major name acts.
Antisaint front man Matthew Whiteman said he was humbled as he talked about the announcement of the band joining the festival’s lineup.
“We’re beyond excited and grateful for the opportunity,” Whiteman said. “This is the kind of show you dream about and to be a part of it is a huge honour. “It’s crazy to see ANTISAINT’s name on the same poster with so many legendary bands that we grew up listening to and drawing influence from. To be included in the 20th Anniversary celebration of such a widely respected festival makes it that much better. It’s a privilege to be included this year!”
Antisaint’s upcoming performance at the Download Festival is in support of the re-issue of its 2021 album, Vaticinate, which was released last year.
