Having previously programmed only Saturday and Sunday, the proposed expansion would make 2005 the biggest Download ever - with both weekend and day tickets being sold for the 60,000 capacity Donington Park event.

At present, the festival is scheduled to take place on the weekend of 11-12 June but according to a popular music weekly, organisers are hoping to run the event on Friday 10th as well. It is believed that Feeder have been approached to headline that day, followed by an Ozzy Osbourne-curated Ozzfest day on the Saturday. Word is, that Ozzy may re-form Black Sabbath to headline this day!

Other strong rumours doing the rounds include Velvet Revolver, Motley Crue, The Datsuns, The Prodigy, Marilyn Manson, and Green Day.

System Of A Down have revealed via their own website that they will be playing on the Sunday, which is expected to be a more traditional metal line-up.

Download 2005 takes place at Donington Park, Derbyshire, on 11-12 June (and possibly the 10th). It is believed that tickets will go on sale in February.
