Since 2003, Donnington Park in Leicestershire has played host to the UK’s biggest gathering of rock and metal fans; the Download Festival.
Ever since the dawn of the modern rock, it has been looked at as a genre for the outcasts, the freaks and the alternative. With stories of Ozzy Osbourne biting a head off a live bat on stage, Marilyn Manson proclaiming himself the ‘Anti-christ Superstar’, huge mosh pits breaking out, and plenty of angry lyrical content, it’s easy to see why some would see Download Festival as quite an intimidating place to be. But is it really all that scary?
We headed down to this years event to chat to some of this years acts to find out if there is really anything to worry about; or if in reality they are all puppy dogs.
Will you brave the fields of Download Festival 2017?
