Continuing the 30 year legacy of the legendary Monsters Of Rock festival at hard rock’s spiritual home of Donington, Download unleashes another historic line up for lovers of all things heavy. ANDREW TRENDELL gives a quick guide of what to expect when things get loud.
“When people think about rock festivals, Donington is one of the first places they think of, if not the first,” says Download Promoter Andy Copping.
Download this year is headlined by rock royalty AC/DC, the awesome Rage Against The Machine (with their only UK festival appearance this summer) and the heroic Aerosmith.
Also on the bill are supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, Killswitch Engage, Deftones, Megadeath, Bullet For My Valentine, Coheed & Cambria, Motorhead, Billy Idol, Slash, and many, many more.
TICKETS ARE STILL AVAILABLE. Visit www.downloadfestival.co.uk for more info
Here are Platform’s 5 Download Festival highlight predictions:
1 – The one and only Rage Against The Machine will be right outside your door. Now Testify!
2. It’s only f*cking Deftones for Christ’s sake. SHOVE IT SHOVE IT SHOVE IT.
3. Aerosmith – And it started with a little kiss LIKE THIS:
4. AC/DC – Things can only get messy when the gods of rock come home to Donington
5. Them Crooked Vultures – ROCK LEGEND x 3 = JUST F*CKING WOW.
