The UK's number one rock and metal music festival

Download Festival is the UK's number one rock and metal music festival, held each year on Donnington Park in Derby. Known across the world thanks to its incredible lineups, 2018's edition will be headlined by Ozzy Osbourne, Guns 'N Roses and Avenged Sevenfold.

With three days of heavy rock across five stages, it's no wonder Download sells out every year, attracting rock fans from around the UK and beyond to its iconic location at Castle Donnington.

But Download is about more than just the music, with its infamous NXT Stage another big part of the festival. The stage sees the festival team up with WWE – the world's biggest name in Sports Entertainment – to create a complete WWE experience in the main arena. That'll mean festival-goers will have the chance to catch WWE superstars inside a purpose built ring, just a stones throw away from the main musical artists. 

In addition to that, there'll also be the popular Inflatable Wedding Chapel, the bizarre and brave Circus Of Horrors and musical comedy on the Side Splitter Stage.
