If V is the Pop Festival, Reading is the everyman's Festival and Glasto is the Indie Festival then Download is Satan's Festival.
Its loud, full of metal heads, usually violent and to be honest, looks like a whole load of fun and this year, it seems set to be no different.
Slipknot, The Prodigy and Motley Crue, have all been announced recently along with other names that include Dragon Force, Pendulum, Korn and Devil Driver (told you it was for Satan). These mark the first wave of names for the event that's sure to have its full bill announced relatively soon.
Download takes place at Donington Park in Derby between June 12th and 14th and tickets go on sale as of 9am this coming Friday (February 13th) so if you're looking to attend, we'd purchase a ticket or two as soon as possible.
Download tickets up for sale on Friday the 13th? You unlucky bastards.
