"I look forward to bringing Dirty Little Rabbits to the world. The invasion begins.”
Accompanying him on the flight over will be his partner in crime, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor, who will give a first solo performance in this country.
"I'm very excited to be a part of this festival," said Corey.
"It'll be the first show of its kind I've ever done in the UK, and I think there are many fans who’ve waited long enough to see it.
"It's one of the greatest joys in the world to me [playing acoustic] and I cannot wait to get over there and share that with the fans."
The main stage will be headlined by Linkin Park on the Saturday and rock gods Metallica on August 2.
