Download, the legendary heavy rock festival, is journeying across the channel and to Paris for its first edition outside the UK. 

Slipknot's Corey Taylor has described the festival as "the destination for heavy-metal and hard rock fans,” and it's easy to see why. From Gods such as Iron Maiden and proper metal outfits like Slayer down to those more obscure, Download has all rock bases covered and more.

Alongside its riff-tastic lineup, the festival is also renowned for its extra curricular activities such as its awesome Inflatable Wedding Chapel, Heavy Metal Dating, Dog's Bed Stage, and who could forget its real ale house, all providing the perfect tonic for when the moshing gets a bit too intense.
