This event has been and gone.

Download Paris is a rock and metal festival in France. A satellite of the legendary UK brand, the festival is now in its second year after a spectacular debut last June.

Taking place across the same weekend as the original Donington festival, Download Paris shares many of the same acts, with the lineup reading like a who's who of rock and metal. So you can expect plenty of moshing, headbanging and spectacular stage shows.

And for the revellers that want to make the festival experience even more unforgettable, there's an on site tattoo parlour, for when a festival t-shirt just won't cut it.

Please visit www.downloadfestival.fr/en for more information.

Californian nu-metallers, Linkin Park, were formed in 1996 and their debut album, 2000's Hybrid Theory, catapulted them into the mainstream, turning them into one of the world's most popular rock bands ever. Frontman Chester Bennington passed away in July 2017 at the age of 41.

Since their formation in 1994, System Of A Down have earned themselves a worldwide following with their unique blend of thrash metal and alternative rock, and never fail to put on a mind blowing performance. The band has achieved huge commercial success with the release of five studio albums, three of which debuted at number one on the US Billboard album chart and have sold over 40 million records worldwide.

Green Day

Green Day appearing at this event

The Californian trio of Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tré Cool have been re-inventing punk since the late 80s. They shifted over 20 million copies of their breakthrough 1994 album 'Dookie', accompanied by the MTV heavy rotation of hit anthems like 'Basket Case' and 'Welcome To Paradise'. With 12 studio albums to their name, they've proved that punk is certainly not dead. Their career took an unexpected turn following 2004's concept album 'American Idiot' when it later spawned a stage musical, at first on Broadway then in the West End. Not even the legacy of the Sex Pistols managed to achieve a jukebox musical! The boys continue to release new albums and play worldwide tours, proving that they are certainly no American idiots.
