The Prodigy to headline Download 2012

The Prodigy have been announced as the final headline act at next year’s Download Festival.

The alt-dance act will headline the first night of the three day festival with the recently reformed original line up of Black Sabbath and Metallica filling the other headline slots. To celebrate it’s twenty-first anniversary, Metallica’s set is to include a performance of their multi-million selling 1991 self-titled release (aka ‘The Black Album’) in full.

As yet, no other acts have been confirmed.
