Following the rip-roaring success of this year’s event, Download Festival have announced that tickets for the 2008 event will be going on sale later this week.

A limited number of early bird tickets will go on sale from 9am this coming Friday (June 15). The event will take place from June 13-15 2008.

Festival director Stuart Galbraith has revealed that he has some high profile acts in mind for the 2008 rock bash in the shape of AC/DC, Muse and the Foo Fighters.

He told the NME: "I would have these three because they reflect the enormous breadth of rock music at Download," he said.

"We'd have Foo Fighters and Muse because they're cutting edge and I'd have AC/DC because they're absolutely classic and I've wanted them to play here for the last five years."

This year’s event featured headline performances from My Chemical Romance, Iron Maiden and Linkin Park.
