Killers to Headline Download Fest

The Killers will headline the first U.S. Download Fest, which will be held Oct. 8 at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA. Modest Mouse, the Arcade Fire, Doves, H.I.M. and Mindless Self Indulgence will also perform. Tickets go on sale Sunday, July 31.

The U.K.'s Download Fest attracted a crowd of 150,000 people to London's Donnington Park this year. Like the U.K. Fest, the American version promises "cutting-edge technology and media experiences" which I'm guessing will offer plenty of opportunities for corporate sponsorships. Yay!

A "Download Fest" also presents opportunities for goofy jokes about celebrating it by downloading music by the artists performing there, but I'm not goin' there. Nope. Too easy.
