NEWS: Download Festival Announces Government Pilot 2021 Event

Although initially cancelled until 2022, Download festival has been resurrected for a 3-day event this Summer as part of the second phase of the Government’s Event Research Programme!

The event will take place in Donnington Park with a capacity of 10,000 people. Everybody on site will have taken a lateral flow test before entry and received a negative result and will have taken a PCR test too meaning you’ll be able to mosh, dance and rock out without a mask or social distancing.

Tickets are available on June 1st, to those who have bought Download 2022 tickets, and after 48 hours will go on general sale. Be warned, the lower capacity means that this event is expected to sell out incredibly quickly!

Check out all the information for Download Pilot and where to find tickets here:

Hopefully, see you in the pit!
