Download announces Reloaded Sky Arts TV event featuring performances from past headliners
Download Festival have teamed up with Sky Arts for a new free-to-air TV event this June: Reloaded.
The two-night show will feature tracks from “the best Download headliner performances from the past 10 years” including Iron Maiden, Slipknot, Rammstein, Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Linkin Park and more, and will air on June 5 – 6 (which is the weekend that should have marked Download 2021).
“The past two years without Download Festival have been tough for us all, so we’re delighted to be able to bring some of the biggest and best Download performances to your living rooms this year,” says head honcho Andy Copping.

“We hope you’ll get involved and set up a tent in your backyards to really enjoy a taste of Download from home. We are all working hard behind the scenes to make sure Download 2022 will be one for the history books. We can’t wait to be reunited with the Download family next June – and perhaps a few of you even earlier than that – to celebrate the festival we all know and love.”

Download Festival 2022 will take place at Donington Park on June 10 – 12, 2022. Tickets are on sale now via downloadfestival.co.uk/tickets.
