Download returns to Donington 2010

The following release has been taken from the Download Festival website as announced only a short time ago.

As many of you would agree, this year’s Download Festival was the most kick-arse ever – with three days of scorching sunshine at Donington Park, and a bevy of awesome performances from over 100 bands. We completely sold out and were even lucky enough to pick up an award at this month’s Marshall Classic Rock Roll Of Honour, for “Event Of The Year” as well as receiving “Event of The Year” for the Metal Hammer’s Golden Gods awards earlier this year.

Now we’d like to announce a very special ‘Early Bird’ offer to everyone who supported Download 2009 – a chance to purchase tickets for next year’s festival at 2009 prices!

Going on sale at 9.00am on Thursday 19 November on the official Download website, standard weekend arena tickets for the 2010 Download Festival will be available at £135. Standard and family camping tickets will stay at £25 for Friday, Saturday, & Sunday, however if you do wish to arrive early on the Wednesday or Thursday there will be an additional charge of £10. Full details will be available on purchase and these prices will only be available until midnight on Christmas Eve. (…perhaps THE most wicked Christmas present you could ever get someone!)

Download 2010 will be taking place on 11, 12 and 13 June, and next year’s event will be something special as 2010 marks the 30th anniversary of Donington Park’s heritage with rock. From the infamous and legendary “Monsters of Rock” festival, which began in 1980; to more recently the epic Download Festival – the site has played host to some of the world’s greatest rock performances of all time. Many bands still to this day consider playing at Donington Park as their ‘defining career moment’, and next summer you’re all invited to help us celebrate in style.

Anticipation is building, rumours are rife, “who will be performing at next year’s Download?” …….As usual, the beast will be unleashed in the New Year, and more badass than ever!

Don’t miss your chance to be part of history!
