The ‘download’ name has been chosen to associate the ‘rebel’ concept of file-sharing system to download music to the concept of rock music. And we can say that approach was never more truthful, because who can say that rock music is not ‘sin’? Nevertheless the sin with the ‘Download Festival’ will not take you to hell but takes you to the paradise of the mind!
The festival was founded in 2003 as a continuation of the Monsters of Rock (one day music festival) in Castle Donington, and today we can say that the initial intentions were respected. With the ‘download festival’ the one day music festival has become a three days music festival of the highest level!
The Download Festival is now an established reality, and it is everything a true ‘rocker’ could want. The hosted bands are always of the highest standard, and to the line-up could be given the first prize for the festival hard rock and heavy metal.
There is no limit to reach the festival. You can decide whether to go by plane, by train, by bus or by car. At the same time you can also decide whether to make use of the camping area or if find a bed and breakfast or a hotel in the area surrounding the festival.
The God of Rock says you can not miss. If you are a fan of rock music and heavy metal, simply, you can not resist the call of your favorite bands!
