Rock and heavy metal's greatest pilgrimage

Download Festival is one of the UK's and arguably the world's greatest rock and metal music festivals, showcasing a lineup of the scene's biggest names and breakthrough stars in Donington Park each June. 

Five stages across three days pack in everything from black metal to punk rock, ensuring Download sells out every single year and continues to maintain its place at the top of the UK's rock music scene. 

And once the Arena's music has finished, the campsite's afterhours zone keeps things running until 2am on Friday and Saturday with bars, funfair rides and even a cinema. 

Meanwhile, Download's extra-musical side sets up a partnership with WWE alongside the infamous inflatable Wedding Chapel, plus the Circus of Horrors and musical comedy on the Side Splitter Stage.

And beyond those is the Download Festival's markets, which sell a huge variety of food from all kinds of regions, as well as clothes, jewellery, piercings and tattoos, as well as band merchandise.
