It takes us a whole week to clear the Donington of all the litter left. Litter bins and skips will be provided for your use around the site, try and make your weekend environment better and use them!

ALWAYS...
• Know where your nearest emergency exits are
• Follow the instructions of Security Personnel, Police or other officials
• Move away promptly from any danger
• Notify a Steward, Police or Official if you see any any antisocial behaviour
• Move to where there is more space, should a crowd surge occur
• Ask for help if you need it and help others, especially if someone falls
• Stay calm (if you are distressed, ask to be taken to the Welfare Tent)

Once on site it is important to plan your day. Obviously the priority is making sure you get to see the acts that mean the most to you – come back to the festival website a few days before the show and all band times will be listed so you can plan in advance.

Don’t forget some other basics though – If you are with friends & are camping together or travelling home together - arrange a place & time to meet up at the end of the night.

Large crowds, a long day & hot weather in combination will tire you out. Make sure you pace yourself, drink plenty of water, eat some food that will give you some energy & minimize sun

  • Use the on-site lockers for your personal belongings; don’t leave anything in your tent when you are not in it. You can either book a locker in advance through your ticket provider or buy one when you arrive.
  • If you can’t take your valuables with you when you leave the tent, leave them at home.
  • Put money, tickets, credit cards and mobile phones in a zipped pocket or use a money belt.
  • Do not bring large sums of cash. Only bring what you need and keep it on you at all times.
  • Postcode the property you do bring to Download so that it is identifiable.
  • If you arrive by car, don’t leave anything on display in your vehicle including sat navs, car stereos, CDs or mobile phones. Don’t put items in your glove box or the boot, this is the first place a thief will look. Take everything with you or leave it at home.

Security staff and police officers will be patrolling both the camp sites and the car parks and each campsite will have a ‘hub’ with a ‘hub’ manager where people can go to report problems.  The mobile police station will be on the site which will be used as a reporting centre if anyone needs to report a crime.  Community volunteers will also be working on the site giving out crime prevention leaflets and post coding your property if visitors have forgotten to do it before they arrive.

The police and the Leicestershire Drug and Alcohol Action Team (DAAT) are using cutting edge technology to get crime prevention and sensible drinking messages through to people at this year’s Download music festival.

Workers from the Drug Intervention Programme will be walking around Donington Park using four portable Bluetooth boxes, each with the capability of sending quick-fire messages to mobile phones within a 25m radius. They will be working in a shift pattern from 10am until 2am on each day of the festival.

People with Bluetooth enabled mobiles will receive a note asking them if they want to receive a message.

If they accept, they will be sent the animated message, which will contain information on a range of topics, including crime prevention and advice on alcohol and drug use.  As the messages are sent using Bluetooth technology and not SMS, they will cost nothing for phone uses to receive.

Nick Jones, an Alcohol Strategy Officer with Leicestershire Drug and Alcohol Action Team, said; "All partners involved believe the use of Bluetooth technology is a really exciting opportunity to get key personal safety, as well as drug and alcohol harm reduction messages, to the revellers throughout the duration of the festival. The messages will be quirky; they will raise a laugh in the spirit of the festival, but will also contain some useful tips to ensure that festival goers have a perfect Download."

There will also be team of Drug and Alcohol Advice workers on site to provide specialist advice on substance misuse and harm reduction to anyone who requires support during the event.

Drugs, hard or soft, are no more legal at festivals than they are anywhere else ­ the same penalties and risks apply. Festivals and large crowds can be disorientating experiences ­ this is definitely not the place to start experimenting. And remember, there are film crews, security staff and police throughout the site and surrounding area - ­ its not exactly secluded!

After all this, however, don't be afraid to tell medical staff or stewards if something is going wrong. - There will also be team of Drug and Alcohol Advice workers on site to provide specialist advice on substance misuse and harm reduction to anyone who requires support during the event.

CROWD CONTROL

Security will have discretionary powers to restrict crowd numbers plus people who are too small or young, intoxicated, aggressive or possibly drug affected, incapacitated, in a wheelchair or on crutches.

Crowd surfing and moshing are dangerous to yourself and others and may result in eviction without a refund, so don’t do it.

Please consider others as well as your own safety, especially in front of stages. If someone falls down or is in distress please help them if you can or let the Stewards or Medical team know so we can help. It's meant to be a fun day, let's make sure it is.

Live Nation constantly strives to ensure a level of excellence in Crowd Management, Security & Safety.  To achieve this goal the event works in partnership with Showsec International Ltd the multi-award winning Crowd Management & Security Company.

For RIP enquiries, please email livenationexperience@livenation.co.uk






Please contact Ministry Of Welfare - mowlostproperty@hotmail.com - if you lost anything during Download 2013.

All disabled customers are welcome at Download, but as it is a greenfield site there are steep stony hilly sections of the site, meaning that sometimes access across the site is not that easy especially in bad weather conditions. Please bare these in mind when booking for the event. Stewards however, will be around to assist.

Live Nation provides a number of facilities in the arena and campsite to accommodate disabled customer's needs, please see the other headings on the left. Not all disabled customer's need use of these facilities but we will provide access to whatever is needed and/or a free carer/PA ticket where required to ensure your stay is comfortable and most of all enjoyable.

Should you have any enquiries regarding the access and facilities at the festival, please email access@downloadfestival.co.uk

Disabled Access Tickets are be listed on the main "Tickets" page.

For each disabled customer attending, they require a disabled access ticket. If they require a PA/companion to attend with them, please apply for their ticket separately. This can be done by downloading a registration form from the Documentation heading. Once you have completed the form please send it back to us with proof of disability. If you require additional tickets for anyone else in the party, these people require standard tickets only.  Standard tickets can be added onto a disabled access ticket order at the bottom of the 'review' page during the purchase process.

If you have any questions or are unsure on the booking process, please feel free to email us at: access@downloadfestival.co.uk or call 0207 195 2133 . The telephone number above is for access information only. If the line is busy, please leave a message and a member of the team will call you back by the end of the next business day.

There will be a dedicated disabled customer entrance for disabled customers and their party. The gate details will be confirmed on your ticket(s).

Where possible, track will be laid from the disabled customer entrance to the main stage viewing platform. We are unable to extend this to the 2nd and 3rd stage platforms for health and safety reasons.

Viewing platforms are available at the main, 2nd and 3rd stages only and have a strict one plus one policy (disabled customer + their PA/companion) PA/companion’s may be asked to stand at the back of the platform when it is busy so we can accommodate more people and we ask all customers to be considerate of others needs. We will provide access to the viewing platforms for customers that need to use this facility. This includes, though not exclusively, wheelchair users, customers who are unable to stand for long periods, customers unable to be in large crowds and customers with invisible impairments. This is subject to availability.

The viewing platforms are made available on a first come first served basis. In the event of the viewing platforms being full we will operate a one in one out process. 

Seating will be provided on each platform for anyone who is not a wheelchair user, including customer’s PA/companion’s. There are unisex wheelchair toilets located in most toilet blocks on the site, and specifically by the viewing platforms. We also provide unisex toilets at the platform for non-wheelchair users & PA/companion’s.

PLEASE NOTE: All viewing platforms operate a strict No Smoking policy.
 
Children under the age of 16 years old must be accompanied by a guardian (18 or over) at all times. Even though the platforms have a one plus one policy customers children will be permitted access if there is no other adult in the party.

The disabled customer campsite is available to customers who are unable to camp in the standard campsites or who need access to the specialist facilities we provide.

You are welcome to camp with your friends, though I’m afraid we must limit this due to restrictions on space. In addition to the disabled customer and their carer, we will permit three more friends in your group. Please ensure you make us aware should you wish to camp with your friends so they are provided with the appropriate wristbands on arrival. Failure to notify us of this may result in us being unable to accommodate your friends on the day.

The disabled customer campsite is much nearer to the festival arena (c0.5 miles to the main stage viewing platform). The campsite is more spacious and has track laid where possible to improve accessibility for wheelchair users and customers with mobility disabilities.

Accessible showers and toilets are provided, along with a secure fridge for any medication that may need to be kept cold. Charging facilities are provided for electric wheelchairs or scooters on a first come first served basis. We also have a HDU which is a High Dependency Unit containing a raised bed with a hoist above, it also has a sink and toilet. Please note that hoist slings will not be available. If you wish to use this unit please bring your own slings.

Cars can also be parked next to tents if required, though we are unable to offer this to everyone due to restrictions on space. Any cars moved from the campsite can be parked in the disabled customer car park.

Campervan supplement tickets for the disabled customer campsite are available on request through the registration form. These tickets are priced at £80 plus booking fees.

Anyone who turns up on the day without a campervan supplement ticket will not be permitted onto the disabled customer campsite.

PLEASE NOTE: Gas stoves/cylinders are NOT permitted in the disabled customer campsite in 2012, other than those professionally fitted in caravans/campervans.

The recommended cooking stoves are any solid fuel type such as

Disposable BBQ’s
Hexi Stove with solid fuel block

Petrol fuelled cookers and generators will not be permitted in any campsite.

Car: The disabled customer parking area is located at the front of the West car park and available on a first come first served basis. Parking is free of charge for blue badge holders.

Download Festival Bio Top

Over the course of the last 14 years, Avenged Sevenfold have grown to be one of the biggest names in heavy music. Consistently releasing ground breaking, genre defying music, the band have written and recorded some of the best and most acclaimed rock albums of the 21st Century, each different to but equally as brilliant as it’s predecessor. Their breath-taking live shows have garnered an unshakeable reputation as one of the most must-see bands in the world. Their most recent studio album, ‘Hail To The King’, was the band’s first to hit the #1 spot in the UK and their second to top the Billboard charts in the US. Download history is sure to be made when they take their rightful place as UK festival headliner for the first time on the hallowed turf of Donington Park.

Joining Avenged Sevenfold on the first day of Download 2014 will be none other than the overlord of all things horror metal, Rob Zombie. After an utterly incredible performance headlining the 2nd stage back in 2011, he will be making a welcome return, this time to the main stage, to blow fans away with what is bound to be another undeniably spectacular performance.

Saturday night at this year’s festival will be headlined by the Grammy Award winning Linkin Park, who will be playing their multi-platinum debut album ‘HYBRID THEORY’ in its entirety as part of their set.

Released in 2000, Linkin Park’s debut album ‘Hybrid Theory’ truly changed the landscape of rock music. ‘Hybrid Theory’ is one of the highest selling albums of the 2000-2010 decade, selling 27 million copies worldwide. It spawned some the biggest anthems of the 21st century including ‘One Step Closer’, ‘Crawling’, ‘Papercut’ and ‘In the End’. Combine these with the plethora of mammoth hits that have followed Linkin Park throughout their career such as ‘Somewhere I Belong’, ‘Numb’, ‘What I’ve Done’ and more recently, the likes of ‘The Catalyst’ and ‘Waiting For The End’ and you’ve got the makings of Download legend.

Hot on the heels of their stunning return from hiatus earlier this year, with their chart topping album ‘Save Rock and Roll’, Chicago’s finest, Fall Out Boy will be bringing their exquisitely crafted, mega-singalong catalogue of hits to the main stage at Donington Park for the first time ever. They'll play main support on Saturday.

The legendary Aerosmith will be closing the festival in 2014, when they headline on Sunday 15th June.  Joining them on the main stage as main support will be hard rockers, Alter Bridge.

Aerosmith are one rock’s most infamous and revered bands. Fronted by the iconic partnership of frontman Steven Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry, their generation spanning career has seen them sell in excess of 150 million records, making them the best selling American rock band in history. Despite having been a band for over 40 years, their incredible, ever expanding collection of hits continues to appeal to hoards of fans both old and new. Their headline performance at Download 2014 will be their first on UK soil since 2010.

Joining Aerosmith in ending what is already set to be an incredible weekend, will be the heavy riffing, arena conquering Alter Bridge. The band released their 4th studio album, ‘Fortress’ earlier this year to huge critical acclaim. It’s been the band’s highest charting album in the UK, hitting the #1 spot on the rock charts and saw them sell out arenas across the country on their recent UK tour.

More to come soon…
