Download Festival - A Rocking Paradise
Celebrating a decade of pure rock in 2012, Download Festival is the number one music event dedicated to the art of heavy
metal and classic rock. A must for rock n' roll lovers all over the country heavyweights Black Sabbath, Rage Against the Machine and Prodigy have all played signature gigs as part
of the Download Festival line up. From a modest two stage setting to a full blown four stage festival, the Download Festival
is a three day riot of heavy metal, thrash and rock.
Download Festival dates are normally booked in early June as a fitting kickstart to the festival season. On StubHub! UK
you can find your Download Festival tickets plus
details of the best rock concerts of summer, all in one place.
More About Download Festival - The Rock Connection
Hosting major heavy-metal headliners of the '70s alongside garage rock scene regulars of the early '00s, Download Festival
delivers the perfect blend between rock eras, connecting with festival-goers on several levels. Built on the reputation of
the Monster of Rock Festival, Download Festival is a multi-stage rock music extravaganza aimed squarely at the digital generation.
Integrating the event with online behaviour, early Download Festivals gave ticketholders the opportunity to download line-up
artists' music to provide an online community with one shared passion - rock music in its many guitar thrashing incarnations.
Previously home to both Formula 1 and Moto GP, The Download Festival is set within Donington Park in the Leicestershire countryside.
Classed as the spiritual home of rock, the site has seen a location change within the park itself, allowing Download Festival
to expand and cater for a more vivid rock experience to fans.
