Download Festival 2024

Download Festival 2024 takes place between 14th and 16th June at Donington Park, Leicestershire. A variety of weather conditions have been experienced in recent years, ranging from scorching sunshine to torrential rain and mud. The festival was infamously named "Drownload" in 2016 due to heavy rain and mud.
