Download Festival is the UK's premier rock and metal festival and takes place on the sacred grounds of Donington Park, which has been associated with rock since the 80's. Since 2003, AC/DC, KISS, Metallica, Guns N' Roses, Rage Against The Machine, Slipknot, Linkin Park and many more have all headlined Download's main stage. But there's much more than just music to keep the crowd entertained. Switch from moshing to laughing at the Side Splitter Stage with its rich comedy line up, or rock the night away with a selection of the UK's biggest alternative DJs and club nights.
