This will be Rammstein's first ever appearance at Download and Iron Maiden's fifth. Maiden will now become the band with the most Download/Donington headline appearances ever.
Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson said: "We're absolutely over the moon to be headlining Donington again. The idea of returning exactly 25 years later with a show inspired by that same 1988 'Seventh Son' Tour was too good an opportunity to be missed! And, thanks to modern technology, we've been able to update and improve on the original production.
"We will be bringing a huge new lightshow, stage set, various incarnations of Eddie, plenty of pyro and all kinds of other exciting stuff for the fans. And of course treating the fans to lots of their favourite songs from that period!
"We've had many great times at Donington and there is always a wonderful mix of bands and a really wild crowd who love their Metal, all of which makes for a memorable show and fantastic party atmosphere!"
