Now in its third year, Download expands into a three day event for 2005, getting progressively heavier as the three days unfold! The Friday will see a more ‘indie’ line-up, Saturday brings Ozzfest back after a four year absence, and Sunday sees the true metal heads returning to Donington.
The bastard son of the old Monsters Of Rock festival (but much smarter than its dad), Download has proved itself one of the most cutting edge festivals since its 2003 conception at the spiritual home of metal. The event employs the latest technology and facilities, as well as bringing scores of extreme athletes to the site to show off their skating and BMX skills.
This year there will be more bars, bigger attractions, better access, and even more fun. But it’s the festival’s bands that make the biggest impact – as long as it rocks hard it’s allowed in!
