Although we can’t promise the sun, we can promise you Sunday’s 3rd and 4th stage headliners Yellowcard and Suicidal Tendencies, as well as seminal Post-Hardcore megaliths Funeral For A Friend, Heavy Metal titans Corrosion of Conformity, Gothfathers Lacuna Coil, the ever-punching 36 Crazyfists, plus this awesome lot:

36 CRAZYFISTS / ANTEMASQUE / BLUES PILLS / CARCASS / CHUNK! NO, CAPTAIN CHUNK! / COLOUR OF NOISE / CORROSION OF CONFORMITY / E OF E / FIDLAR / FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND / GET HOT / KROKODIL / LACUNA COIL / LIKE A STORM / LTNT / MALEFICE / RENE LAVICE / SEPTEMBER  MOURNING / SUICIDAL TENDENCIES  / THE CADILLAC THREE / THE LOUNGE KITTENS / THE QEMISTS / THE STRUTS / THE WILD LIES / THREE DAYS GRACE / UPON A BURNING BODY / VON HERTZEN BROTHERS / YELLOWCARD

Taking to the stages at Donington come June, you’ll find supergroup Krokodil plus a blend of Prog, Funk and Punk Rock from Antemasque, featuring former members of The Mars Volta and At The Drive-In.

Canadian stadium rockers Three Days Grace also join the line-up, while Reading thrash merchants Malefice return following the release of a new EP. Fellow homegrown axe-wielders The Wild Lies provide a  shot of undiluted classic Hard Rock, as the sharply dressed Upon A Burning Body return to Donington having been denied their Download appearance last year, when singer Danny Leal was taken ill at the last minute.

Another act who had to had to pull out of their 2014 performance but return in 2015 is September Mourning, while Finnish Folk-Prog goliaths Von Hertzen Brothers also join the bill, following the release of their new album in March.

New albums all round as The Qemists get in on the act with fellow Brightonians Colour of Noise, who make their debut at Download alongside the hotly tipped LTNT.

Swedish-American Blue Pills blend smoky Blues with thunderous Hard Rock, while surf/skate punks Fidlar and Dub-Rave-Punk experimentalists Get Hot also enter the fray. Chunk, No, Captain Chunk! make their first appearance, while Kerrang! Best Newcomer Award nominees E of E will be making the comparatively short trip from Dudley.

Derby rockers The Struts, New Zealanders Like A Storm and Country rockers The Cadillac Three all but complete the lineup apart from the sounds of vocal harmonists The Lounge Kittens, whose twist on Rock and Metal classics has earned them opening spots for Limp Bizkit and Steel Panther among others.

The countdown is on, the days are longer and we’re reminded that the sun actually works. Time to start dreaming of sweaty tents, sun-tan lotion, after-sun, dusty shoes, endless fluids and f*ckin ROCK N ROLL.
