Download Festival 2019: The First Review
Many things happened at Download Festival 2019. We witnessed the brutal return of Slipknot. We said a loud farewell to Slayer. There was Tool’s first show on British soil in over a decade. And that’s just the start of it. Try as it might, a bit of rain and mud wasn’t going to stop you all from having the time of your lives, nor could it stop us from bringing you the best moments from the summer’s best weekend…
Miserable that Download is over for another year? Us too. But fear not! You can relive all your memories of this year’s extravaganza simply by staring at this week’s exclusive art print every night, then going into your garden and sleeping in a tent. Artwork by the very awesome vertebrae33.net!
Elsewhere in the mag: Alter Bridge tell us all about their brand-new album Walk The Sky and huge arena tour, we put Killswitch Engage leader Jesse Leach through the career-spanning K! Interview, Chris Motionless of Motionless In White braces himself to show the world who he really is, The Regrettes’ Lydia Night talks us through the songs that changed her life, and Awsten Knight of Waterparks rallies for bands to embrace their ambitious side.
All this and more is available in the new issue of Kerrang!, which you can get anywhere in the world through Kerrang.Newsstand.co.uk. But for UK residents, it hits the shops on Wednesday, June 19 from all good newsagents.
Not all gigs go according to plan. Human error, equipment failure and a myriad of other catastrophes can scupper even the biggest bands’ best-laid plans…
Hear Atreyu’s two new singles: Warrior featuring blink-182’s Travis Barker, and Underrated.
