10th – 12th June 2022
Download returns to full glory this year and is all set to play host to the ultimate who’s-who of heavy metal, hard rock, and alternative music!
The first full Download since 2019, the UK’s premier rock festival will take place from 10th – 12th June at the well-established spiritual home of rock, Donnington Park, just next to East Midlands Airport.

With an absolutely killer line-up across three days, on Friday 10th June the main stage features Black Veil Brides, Skindred, A Day To Remember, and more, while headliners Kiss will be sure to wow festival-goers with their explosive stage show to close the day. Frank Carter will be headlining the Second Stage, and Sleep Token will be ones-to-watch over at the Avalanche Stage.
On Saturday 11th June the line-up includes heavyweights Deftones, Megadeath, Mastodon, Funeral For A Friend, with the ultimate show-stoppers Iron Maiden headlining, who themselves are currently celebrating the 40th anniversary year of their best-selling album, Number Of The Beast.
On Sunday 12th June Korn, Rise Against, Volbeat, and Steel Panther are just a few of the huge names appearing throughout the day, with Biffy Clyo bringing the festival to a close.
