The recent ten thousand capacity Download Pilot event witnessed the welcomed live return of a full camping festival as part of the UK Government's pilot scheme to help open up live music. We were lucky enough to attend the memorable live event, find out what we thought about the artists we saw over the weekend!
This weekend a 10,000 capacity Download Pilot is set to take place featuring headliners Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Enter Shikari, Bullet For My Valentine plus many more acts across the three-day test festival. The event is set to be utilised as a gateway to getting live music back on the road as part of the second phase of the Government's scientific event research programme. Check out our top picks from the line-up of this very special music event.
Most consider the festival season a bit of a none starter if they didn't get the chance to make it to Slam Dunk. Travelling through three major UK locations each year during the May bank holiday music lovers in their hordes religiously flock to the event. With a few big changes to the stage arrangements this year, along with a duel headline setup, we took a trip down to this year's event in Leeds to see what all of the fuss was about.
It's finally the time of year where Slam Dunk Festival returns, taking over Leeds, Hatfield and Birmingham for three days of rock, metal and punk. Bigger and better than ever, with Hatfield expanding to a new site, we're spoilt for choice and can't wait to be back at one of our favourite festivals of the year. Wondering who to check out this weekend? Here are some of our top picks!
