This weekend: Kerrang! brings you unparalleled coverage of Download Pilot

This weekend, join Kerrang! in celebrating the return of live music with our unbeatable coverage of Download Pilot

The time has finally come – Download Festival is back! Tomorrow afternoon, Donington Park will open its gates for the first time in two years, welcoming 10,000 rock and metal fans to Download Pilot. It’s not just a festival, but a crucial step in the return of live music this summer and beyond… and Kerrang! will be bringing it all to you – from the mosh-pits to the photo pits.

From Friday afternoon until the small hours of Sunday night/Monday morning, Kerrang! will be the only place to get live reviews of every single band performing across the weekend, plus exclusive live galleries, setlists and much more.

But that’s not all, check out K!‘s Instagram and Twitter for exclusive backstage video interviews with the biggest and best artists at the festival, alongside some extra-special fan films. 

Keep your eyes locked on Kerrang.com tomorrow for The Big Review and keep checking our socials for exclusive videos from the pit, the bar and beyond.

And to get you in the mood, check out our handy Download Pilot playlist below.
