FESTIVAL FUN: Download Festival to host government pilot event this Summer for 10,000 music fans!
On 18th-20th June 2021, 10,000 music fans will have the chance to attend Download Festival under the governments pilot scheme.
Tickets go on sale on Tuesday 1 June for the longstanding loyal existing Download Festival 2022 ticket holders, before general on sale on Thursday 3 June.
The full line-up will be announced on Friday 28 May.
Festival Republic confirmed that a three-day, 10,000 capacity, camping only festival will take place this June as part of the second phase of the Government’s scientific Events Research Programme. In the true spirit of rock, the ‘Download Pilot’ will take place on the hallowed grounds of Donington Park, the home of rock and metal since 1980.
Working closely with the Government to adhere to safety guidelines, this Download Pilot, as the first 10,000 capacity camping festival event, will play an important role in paving the way for the return of large-scale music events and festivals as the UK emerges from the past year’s restrictions.
As a Government scientific Events Research Programme event, festivalgoers will need to consent to take part and must be over 16. There will be no day tickets available with all festivalgoers expected to camp on-site for the duration of the event.
It has been said that moshing will be allowed to fully 'rock out'. However, all attendees must have proof of a negative lateral flow test result to enter the festival and those who test positive will be issued a full refund.
