Download Festival To Run 10,000 Capacity Pilot Event

Download Festival will be running a 10,000 capacity pilot event as part of the Government’s Event Research Programme.

The pilot event will take place in Donington Park and will be a camping festival set over three days.

Everybody on site will need to take a lateral flow test and receive a negative result before entry. No masks or social distancing will be required once inside the event.

Researchers from Public Health England will be overseeing the study. They will be gathering data on transmission risk, the suspension of social distancing and face coverings over several consecutive days. This data will help to ensure that events later this summer can go ahead safely.

Download 2022 ticket holders will be given priority on tickets for the pilot event for 48 hours.
