If you're into rock and heavy metal then this festival is for you. Download has five stages, all heaving with legendary acts in abundance. Some of the biggest and best names in rock are guaranteed each year. The festival has taken place since 2003 and it now even has its own mascot, "The Download Dog". The massive names speak for themselves but everyone also talks of the great atmosphere this festival has; you'll have as much fun checking out the crowd's festival gear and chatting to other revelers about what bands they have seen or where they got their outfits from as you will listing to the music.
This event has been described as the annual pilgrimage for dedicated rock and metal fans, but even if you think this doesn't exactly apply to you, we'd urge you to give it a go as it's one of those festivals where you'll love the experience!
