When? June 10-12 2016
What? The debut French edition of the legendary rock and metal fest.
Where? The Hippodrome de Longchamp
When you say ‘heavy metal’ in the UK, you often think of Download, the colossal and ever popular rock and metal festival that takes over Donington Park in Leicestershire, England, every June. This year, organisers have enlisted a French team for a parallel festival at the Hippodrome de Longchamp, just outside Paris, boasting a lineup just as impressive as anything its English counterpart has ever had to offer.
After all, it doesn’t get much bigger in the metal world than Iron Maiden and Rammstein, who take top billing here, and with an undercard featuring the long-awaited comeback from Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro, as well as full sets from the likes of Korn, Deftones, Megadeth, Gojira, Anthrax and Trivium, it’ll surely be one of the best, loudest, most beautiful weekends of your life. The UK festival is renowned as a place where fans come to savour the music and nothing but, and organisers aim to recreate that convivial vibe here.
