Judas Priest and Dream Theater will headline next year's High Voltage festival.

The rock duo will take top billing at the Classic Rock-backed event on 23 and 24 July respectively. We guess this means Dream Theater had better up their search for a new drummer! Who would be your pick to replace Mike Portnoy?

News of the headliners comes amid a raft of festival announcements, with Linkin Park and Rob Zombie confirmed for Download last night, while Sonisphere revealed Biffy Clyro as their second main draw.
