About Download Festival 2022
Retaining its title year after year as the only rock festival worth mentioning, Download Festival continues to hit all the right notes for true fans of rock music. Three days of heavy rock over five stages are what await the faithful who make the journey to the iconic location every year.
Previous headliners have included the likes of Marilyn Manson, Iron Maiden, Metallica, HIM, Black Sabbath, System of a Down, Tool, and Guns N’ Roses to name a few.
With each year’s improvement on the last, and the organizers staying true to the Donnington ‘Monsters of Rock’ ethos, rock music certainly has a spiritual home in the shape of Download Festival.
The bars stay open after the entertainment has finished, and running until 2am (Friday to Sunday) there'll be an after-hours Campsite Entertainment Zone, which has a cafe, beer stall, funfair rides, various shops, and a cinema.
More details coming soon!
Music genres: Rock, Metal, Ska, Alternative, Punk
