Download Festival is the UK’s number one rock and metal festival, consistently showcasing the scene’s very best artists at its iconic Donington Park site each June.

From hard hitting rock music line-ups to heavy metal clangers, Download Festival has much more than just music to keep the crowd entertained. Switch from thrashing to laughing at the Side Splitter Stage hosting a rich line-up of comedy, or explore the Circus of Horrors including everything from sword swallowers, acrobatics and circus acts.

Download festival was first founded in 2003 and it has hosted such acclaimed music legends and bands such as Iron Maiden, Marilyn Manson, Audio Slave, Linkin Park, Metallica, Black Sabbath, AC DC, Rage Against The Machine, KISS, Slipknot and The Prodigy. It has since grown to establish itself the UK’s top and internationally acclaimed rock and heavy metal music festival.
