Download Festival, Donington - live review

Live Review

Venue: Donington Park, Leicestershire

A look at the proggier aspects of Download Festival, including Opeth, Mastodon, Devin Townsend, Sikth and Coheed And Cambria

While the rain breaks with long-held tradition by failing to lash down, this year’s Download Festival is stricken by another foe: the wind. For much of the weekend, westerlies whip across the site, and while this might not affect some of the more musically straightforward acts, it plays havoc with the sound of anyone on the outdoor stages whose ouvre is naturally more complex.
