Download Pilot

After two years away, being back in Donington for the Download Pilot was a truly epic moment. Smaller than usual, with just 10,000 people attending, it was a Download experience like no other.

It was an all-UK line up, and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Enter Shikari and Bullet For My Valentine blew us away. There was plenty of smaller homegrown talent on the bill too, with Hot Milk, Sleep Token, Conjurer, Holding Absence and more wow-ing the sold out crowd. Oh, and did we mention there were NO clashes?!

It was a historical moment for Download, as our pilot event helped pave the way to bring live events back after the pandemic. We couldn’t be prouder of Downloaders for coming together and making it such an awesome weekend! \m/
