Head-banging and mud-diving at Download Festival 2016
Festival season is officially underway with Download Festival 2016 taking place last weekend, but with June’s questionable UK weather a few people were left muddier than originally hoped for.
The annual rock festival Download returned to Donington Park this past weekend with headliners Rammstein, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden.

Sadly, it wasn’t the headliners making the headlines this year. As 2016 marked one of the festival’s muddiest years, the news was awash with how Download turned into Drownload.
Thankfully, you can count on Download Festival punters to keep everyone entertained, even in the mud in the mud. One fellow took it upon him to dive headfirst into what can only be called a river of mud.

Need your Download Festival fix?
If you missed download this year (we don’t blame you), you’re in luck if you want to see some of the on stage talent.
Saturday headliners Black Sabbath confirmed a huge arena tour for 2017 ahead of the festival. The dates mark their final ever shows as Black Sabbath. While Alien Ant Farm, Architects and Billy Talent will all hit the road towards the end of 2016.
