The festival will take place at Castle Donington from June 9th-11th, and Metallica, Tool and Guns & Roses are all set to headline.
Gibson is sponsoring the Third Stage, a big fat tent that will showcase new acts along with old favourites such as Killing Joke and Skindred. Guitar Hero fans will be able to take the stage and rock out in between band performances - if you fancy giving it a go, email email@example.com to reserve your place.
OH. MY. GOD. Coolest press release EVER.
Here, this'll get you in the mood, from the official gallery of heroes:
Also, did you know Guitar Hero are offering up unsigned bands the chance to appear on Guitar Hero II? This is all just too shiny for words!
I must go lie down.
