Download Festival 2013

Logo for the 10th annual Download FestivalTickets for the 11th annual Download Festival go on sale a mere five days after the end of this years event. On Friday, June 15th at 9am BST a limited number of early-bird tickets will go on sale for the concert which is set for June 14-16 2013 at it’s home in Donington Park, UK. Not sure if they’ll have any commitments for the lineup at this early date but with their track record I’m sure they can be trusted to deliver.

The three major headliners from this years show were The Prodigy, Metallica (who played the entire Black album) and Black Sabbath. Other notable heavyweights were Soundgarden, Machine Head, Megadeth, Lamb of God and Fear Factory. Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro introduced a few new songs during their performance on Saturday, June 9th.

Eye-witness guestimates of attendance seem to round out to be around 75k.
