Download 2022: the playlist

Heading to Download this weekend? Get yourself ready with our festival playlist featuring all of the biggest and best acts you'll be able to catch at Donington Park


The rock gods are smiling on Donington Park this weekend as Download festival prepares to unleash one of its biggest line-ups to date. Kiss, Iron Maiden and Biffy Clyro are the heavyweight headliners topping the main stage, but the rest of the weekend will be packed with some of the most exciting names in rock – from seasoned veterans like Korn, Deftones and Megadeth, to throne challengers like Wargasm, Cassyette and Kid Brunswick. Throw in pretty much every big name in between (Skindred, Frank Carter, Steel Panther, Funeral For A Friend, Mastodon…) and Download 2022 is already looking like a vintage year for the festival.
