As we previously reported, the organisers have now confirmed that Deconstruction will take over the Scuzz Stage on Sunday 1 June, the final day of the two day festival which takes place in Donington.

Mike Davies (presenter of Radio 1's The Lock Up) will be hosting the Deconstruction event. Deconstruction organiser Dave Pollack said, "I am really happy that we have the chance to put the two Festivals together.  I think the move will benefit both Deconstruction and Download - we will bring a more alternative audience to Download and at the same time the Deconstruction bands get to play in front of a larger crowd. Download have been very open and co-operative in letting us do the stage the way we wish. I am sure this will be a great day out."

The concept of this event, which links punk rock and hardcore bands with trendsports aims to take them beyond the historical link with professional skateboarding. At this year’s Deconstruction Tour (which rolls through Europe) the sports will be more integrated in the overall running order by doing skate / BMX jams and freestyle MotoX while bands change over. BMXers on the tour include Zach Shaw, Stefan Geisler, Eduwardo Terrero and John Taylor and the pro skateboarders include Ali Cairns, Pete King, Dave Allen and Jocke Olson.

Deconstruction was incredibly successful in the last few years (with NOFX, GOOD RIDDANCE, PENNYWISE, LAGWAGON, MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES and SNAPCASE all taking part).  The London Deconstruction date last year saw 15,000 kids go mental at one of the capital's best summer events.

Tickets to the Download Festival are available now from the Virtual Festivals Ticket Store.
