Download Festival has won a place in the hearts of the majority of Britain’s rock and metal fans, with the three day event held at Donington Park in June tirelessly inviting some of the world's most influential and talented solo artists and bands to perform across the numerous stages that are erected every year.

Over the years there has been a phenomenal amount of talent seen at Download, with each year striving to better the last. The main stage at download has been headlined by the likes of Muse, Slipknot, KISS, Iron Maiden, Rammstein, The Prodigy, Black Sabbath and Metallica to name just a few, with even more world class names appearing in support, recently including Judas Priest, Motley Crue, Slash, A Day To Remember, Rise Against, Billy Idol and Five Finger Death Punch.

The main stage is far from being where the excitement ends, as the Zippo Encore stage is also brimming with bands that are more than worthy of a headline slot anywhere. Marilyn Manson, Enter Shikari, Black Stone Cherry, Thunder, Black Veil Brides, Lamb Of God, Modestep and Motionless In White and Eagles Of Death Metal have appeared over the last few years and have all proved highlights for many.

The final stages are hotbeds for further alternative performance and upcoming bands who have been spotted by Download’s organisers. Some of the more well known artists who have played here include Fightstar, Andrew WK, HIM, The Hives and Golgol Bordello, however there is much to discover all weekend here.

Donnington Park

Having been the location for fans of the heavier genres since Download’s 2003 beginnings, Donnington Park is also widely renowned for its motorsport circuit. As the popularity of the festival grew larger, so did the scale of the site, and from taking place within the tracks, the three day event expanded to outside of the road in 2008. Now with five stages and bringing in huge rock gods, Donnington’s green-turned-muddy park is the perfect place.
