Download festival is first to launch its own beer
Download will become the first festival to launch its own beer next month - as 5 bands are added to bill
This year’s Download festival will be the first event of its kind in the world to launch its own beer, organisers have announced.
Dogtooth – the name inspired by the festival mascot – will be on sale at all bars on the Donington site, which will play host to dozens of bands under headliners Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Rammstein.
Five more acts have also been added to the bill for June 10-12: Inme, The Dirty Youth, The Franklys, Santa Cruz and Witchsorrow.
Meanwhile, further details of onsite entertainment at the Download village have been unveiled. The Side Splitter Stage will present comedians, circus performers and more, while Circus Of Horrors present their all-new show The Never-Ending Nightmate, as Carnival Of The Bizarre offer additional alternative acts.
Battle Heritage will perform full-contact medieval fighting at the Demolition Download, the Original Wall Of Death will line up beside the Zorbing Race Circuit, the Inflatable Church makes a return, art installations will be available to enjoy, and Download Club Nights will take place after the main stages have closed down.
