Your 2022 Friday Fancy Dress Theme Is… Nu-Metal!

It’s the sound of a generation, and now it’s your Friday fancy dress theme for Download 2022… nu-metal!

Whip out your cargo pants and wallet chains.

We want to see outrageous hair, backwards caps (think Fred Durst), baggy jeans, chains, mesh, and ridiculously oversized shirts.

Need to get in the zone? Stick on Korn‘s ‘Freak On A Leash’, Deftones‘ ‘My Own Summer (Shove It), and Skindred‘s ‘Nobody’. And if you want some NEW nu-metal sounds, check out Fire From The Gods, CassyetteDeath Blooms and Wargasm (remember what they said in their track ‘God Of War’? “Nu-metal is definitely coming back”).

We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
