Get ready to rock as the UKs biggest and best rock festival Download brings headline names Def Leppard, Slipknot and Tool to the 2019 event.
Download festival is held in the grounds of Donington Park and will take place between 14 – 16 June 2019. The location is synonymous with heavy rocking sounds as the festival rose from the ashes of the original one day event ‘Monsters of Rock‘.
Def Leppard are all set to perform their classic album Hysteria live in full, following a well received arena tour late 2018. ‘Hysteria‘ is the band’s best selling album to date, which saw them conquer America and the world, thanks to the singles Animal, Love Bites, Armageddon It and Pour Some Sugar on Me.
Iowa legends Slipknot are favourites at Download Festival, with them playing on the bill three times before. Slipknot have been teasing that a new album in the works, so this may well be a chance for the band to try out some new material on you maggots!
Other artists confirmed for this year’s festival include Slash featuring Myles Kennedy, Die Antwoord, Smashing Pumpkins, Rob Zombie, Halestorm and Slayer, playing their final UK show.
