Horn signs at the ready; get set for a weekend of rock as the biggest names in metal take to the stage at Download Festival.
The vast grounds of Donington Park will once again be the home of Britain’s biggest rock and metal festival. Since its humble beginnings in 2003, Download has welcomed the biggest icons of the rock, metal and punk genres, from Ozzy Osbourne to Billy Idol, to grace its stages, as well as new, up-and-coming bands.
Head bang your way around Download’s four stages, each featuring an impressive line-up of bands, or take it easy with a stroll around the alternative market stalls. If you're feeling extra brave, take a ride on the enormous ferris wheel right next to the Main Stage for great views across the site.
Download Festival 2019 runs from 14 to 16 June; this year's headliners are Def Leppard, Slipknot and Tool.
