This year's Download Festival turned out to be a very wet weekend with constant downpours and thunderstorms throughout the three days, but what would 'Drownload' festival be without a little bit of rain? Thick with mud and soggy from the rain, the crowds all gathered looking for a fantastic time and with phenomenal headliners Rammstein, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden the weekend was never going to disappoint. Aside from the wrestling and the creative Zippo lighters that you could engrave in the Zippo Encore booth, as well as get hold of the limited edition Download Zippo lighter, the music line up for this year's festival was phenomenal - and we can't wait for the next Download festival already.
There were multiple highlights throughout the weekend, and as we stocked up on burgers, we headed down to the Lemmy stage to catch one of the more out-there acts of the weekend - Babymetal. Babymetal were mesmerising as they always are, with hit songs Gimme Chocolate and Road To Resistance taking the crowd by storm. A giant circle pit opened as the Japanese J-pop/metal band took to the stage and gave a fantastically choreographed performance as always.
Killswitch Engage managed to slay the stage as they always do, even in the torrential downpour that overtook their set, as the band plunged into hit songs My Curse, Strength Of The Mind and My Last Serenade, there was nothing that they can do to disappoint. A huge crowd turned out to watch the band, even in the mudpit that the Lemmy stage gave way to.

The rockers reveal their last ever tour.
Mötley Crüe have officially announced 'The Final Tour,' their last ever set of shows touring 72 dates across the US and Canada. The band arrived at the press conference for their big announcement in a hearse and sat upon tombstones reading each of their names as they delivered the news of their last big blow-out.
Motley Crue Have Announced Their Retirement Tour.
The Californian metallers, Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee and Mick Mars, said they wanted to "go out on top" and with some "dignity," according to Sky News. To show that the retirement news isn't just a temporary measure or a publicity stunt, the band showed a 'Cessation of Touring' agreement that they had all signed and that will prevent any more touring unless all four members want to.
