Get Ready To Do THe Newport Helicopter…

The Welsh ragga-punk-metallers are back! The mighty Skindred will take to the Main Stage on Friday night. Expect ‘Big Tings’ from these guys, you’ll want to get practicing for the pit now: we hear nobody gets out alive.

Yo-ho, yo-ho, a pirate’s life for us – it’s none other than Alestorm! They’ll also be playing the Main Stage on Sunday. Look out for the giant rubber duck.

Next Up…

Industrial rockers SKYND write tracks inspired by serial killers, unsolved murders, and all that gory stuff, so if you’re into true crime, these guys’ll be right up your street. Don’t miss them on the Second Stage on Friday.

LA rock outfit Dirty Honey will also take to the Second Stage on Saturday afternoon. The 70’s influenced quartet have supported the likes of Guns ‘N’ Roses and The Who, so get ready for some “new-fashioned” rock ‘n’ roll.

21-year old Kid Brunswick worked with Mike Shinoda on his 2021 record ‘XForever’, which has now racked up millions of Spotify plays. Described by Rock Sound as “a thick mesh of punk attitude and pop sensibility”, we can’t wait to hear these tracks in the Avalanche tent.

Plus, by popular demand, we’ve bumped up As Everything Unfolds and Spiritbox to a bigger stage! We know how many of you asked for this, and we hear you. Catch ’em in the Avalanche tent on Friday and Sunday respectively.

over On The Dogtooth Stage…

Brighton riffmakers Yonaka are ready to blow the roof off the Dogtooth tent. Not heard ’em yet? ‘Don’t Wait ‘Til Tomorrow’… check them out now.

Bimini rose to fame on Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK, and has since been making waves with punk-tinged single ‘God Save This Queen’. What’s next for them? Playing Download of course, what else?!

If you like things super heavy, you’ll want to check out Swedish death metal fourpiece Orbit Culture, as well as one of the heaviest bands in the UK right now, Heriot. Both of their sets are guaranteed to give you a bangover.

Plus, US stoner rockers Red Fang, noise metal veterans Will Haven, retro rock ‘n’ roll trio The Velveteers, self-professed heavy metal boy band Banks Arcade, and rap metal’s newest star Dana Dentata will all make appearances on the Dogtooth Stage across the weekend.

Not got your DL22 tickets yet?! It’s not too late – go grab ’em now.

You’ll be able to catch all the bands above, plus headliners KISSIron Maiden, and Biffy Clyro, and loads more. Download Festival takes place on 10th-12th June 2022 in Donington Park.
