Following its brilliant 2017 outing last weekend, Download Festival will return in 2018.

This year’s outing saw 80000 people descend on Donington Park, the spiritual home of rock. Aerosmith gave fans a memorable final UK performance, System of a Down returned to headline the festival for the second time, and Biffy Clyro stormed through a brilliant set to prove their place as Download Festival headliners.

Improvements to the site, and a weekend of glorious sunshine, made the event a great success.

You can catch up on all our coverage, including photo galleries, reviews and updates, by reading back through our live blog. We also have loads of video interviews from site on their way.

With the dust barely settled on Donington Park, organisers are getting ready to do it all over again. Tickets for Download Festival 2018 go on sale on Friday 16 June at 10:00.

Expect more of the biggest, best and brightest names in rock.
