Download Festival takes place at the mecca of rock and metal, Donington Park. The Monsters of Rock festival was established in 1980 by promoter Paul Loasby and the late Maurice Jones who died last year, originally created as a day-long summer festival dedicated to rock and heavy metal bands. Over the years it was quickly established as the annual event for the UK hard rock fraternity. It was destined to become a British music tradition, with Download taking over the reigns in 2003 - 30 years on and Download has become the UK's premier rock festival.
