The UK's best festivals
Rock behemoths, gather.
The UK’s undisputed number one metal festival, Download always promises a stellar line-up that doesn’t get lost in the noise. Every band with a heavy riff makes the journey each year, including many thrash, crust, screamo and emo outfits: dedicated headbangers had better warm up to avoid whiplash.
Line-up includes Kiss, Iron Maiden, System of a Down, Deftones, Korn, The Offspring, Gojira, Disturbed
Donington Park, Donington. June 12-14.
