Download Festival


Rock has never tasted so good!

The Download Festival is a three day rock/metal/punk festival held at the spiritual home of rock music in England - Donington Park, where the Monsters of Rock Festivals between 1980 and 1996, and 2002's Ozzfest all took place. Run by Live Nation (formerly Clear Channel Entertainment), Download is the company?s flagship festival in the UK. Launched in 2003 as a two day event, Download quickly established a reputation as not only the UK?s best major festival specialising in metal and hard rock, but also for its focus on online interactivity and innovation. The Virtual Festivals team are very proud to have worked, behind the scenes, on the evolution of Download?s award-winning website and message board community, which continue to set the world standard. The festival expanded into a three-day event in 2005, experimenting with an 'indie day' on the Friday before returning to its roots the following year with a bill packed with all things heavy. 2006 saw the addition of an all-night entertainment zone, ?The Village?, complete with burlesque performers, stilt-walking freaks and a metal disco. The likes of Metallica, Guns 'N' Roses, Black Sabbath, Korn, Velvet Revolver, HIM, Slayer, System Of A Down, and many more have left their stamp on Download.
