Yo comment section racists in denial. Saying Black Lives Matter doesn't insinuate that other lives don't. Just, FYI.

Woah, the comments on this post are so sad ๐Ÿ™ I thought my expectations of humanity were low enough but apparently not....

Yes download we need more people to tale action on this racism is not ok in any form

Wow, I wasn’t expecting to see comments like this on a Download post. Shameful.

the ignorance in some of these comment sections is unreal. All lives matter CANNOT matter until Black lives do. I see you and I stand with you as an ally, to all the people who have had to go through and still experience racism.

Lo and behold the comments show one of the biggest issues with the metal community. Black Lives Matter does not mean your white ass doesn't matter. Read a history book and educate yourselves

Andy Woodhead most of the comments on here are disgusting.

Social media all to myself tomorrow

What actually is black out Tuesday? I get it's related to the BLM stuff going on but this is the first I've heard of it and you ask us to join you without telling us how ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I'm guessing you're expecting most people to have seen other posts about it?

it’s funny when i first came on the alternative scene i thought it was so open and accepting but honestly it’s the complete opposite looool

People keep saying "every life matters", like when they read black lives matter they see the word "only" at the front Reminds me a lot of "not all men!1!"

So whats actually happening ?

It's quite clear that the problem walks among us. This needs to change.

So disappointed in some of the comments..real lack of empathy and ignorance

'All lives matter' is the equivalent to 'straight pride'.

If you take issue with people calling out racism, but not with the actual racism at play, then guess what? You're part of the problem.

And in one fell swoop, the metal community proved itself to be incredibly toxic. Congratulations guys

So what’s exactly happening on Tuesday? What actions will be taken to help this cause?

Fully support this message we need to group together to stop racism of all kinds the problems we have it it's still second nature to some and until we can change the stereotypes we will always have hate and rasicm

What do I need to do ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

What is happening and how can we be involved?

To the idiots screaming all lives matter. White people aren’t being victimised because of the colour of their skin, black people are the victims and have been for many years. Yes, all lives matter, obviously, but all lives aren’t being targeted by racist idiots are they.

Wow, just wow.

Thank you for ending racism

Well done

Very good

Thank you for standing up for what is right.

How Metal should be. supportive.

They will have a little extra disposable income from the money them and Metallica made scamming fans so makes sense.

Phil Anselmo must be crying right now lol

Well said


Josh Brammeld

Wear black for black lives?

Sarah Connolly

Yeah racists do destroy culture. Download wouldn't be welcome in most countries in the world would it, a group of white blokes listening to slayer. Could never

Yes, this! โœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐ŸปโœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐Ÿป

Maybe on Download TV fest in a couple of weeks you can have a portion of the weekend dedicated to bands from our black community? Showing how these people are our community, that we live and breathe together, we fight together, we support them and stand with them.

A misogynous festival tries to speak out against discrimination? Good joke...

Well done Download. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ

Weve gone from Dont Look Back In Anger to Burn Motherfucker Burn

We don't consider racism to be a political issue; it's a human issue. We don't think it's a left-ist or right-ist issue, it's a human issue... Download celebrates the values of tolerance, empathy and understanding; we wish to make it clear that racism has absolutely NO place at the festival or on our online channels. Racist comments on this post will be deleted.


Another [BRAND] throwing their hat into the ring of social justice for the soul purpose of making a bit more money

Filth on the right don’t like to be confronted with their wickedness.

It’s funny how the racists and their sympathisers like to out themselves on posts like these.

Maybe try booking more black artists in future.

  3. Jasmine Cooke says:

  4. Dave Jones says:

  5. Janet Whatley says:

    Well done to everyone already at Download including my son.xx

  6. AJ Le Brun says:

    So, you say the event is accessible… But why are there loads of unlaid paths sat outside the village, instead of being laid and giving wheelchairs and walkers access to the food vendors, dog house or side splitter stage?

    We arrived yesterday so we could catch the comedy and circus of horrors today… Not a chance in my wheelchair.

  7. Gemma Malpass says:

    The state of it this year is nasty, we packed our bags and went home yesterday, waited hours to get in and was so excited because it’s been 5 years since my last download, but it wasnt worth staying and getting ill for. I’ve been going download from 2009 – 2014, never have I felt like I had to leave. Dont think I’ll be back again, awful experience, they cant seem to compensate for the rain, it’s always in a state when its rained. Also most of the camps seem to be infested with tiny spiders. Spent most of the time getting spiders out the tent. Nope from me. Glad to home

  8. James Brookes says:

    I see lots are leaving.. 2 cheap wristbands wanted. Can collect

  9. Matt Pearson says:

  15. Jamie Moxon says:

    Is there a contact number for the welfare tent?

  16. Elizabeth Amelia Seville says:

    What an absolute farce, had to leave Download early due to bad lay out which caused us to walk 7.5 miles on first day and walking for over an hour in thick mud with our things, mud in campsites, the village and toilets. Anywhere else was really uneven paths with large stones making it also hard for people to walk on, we had to leave our tent and mattress as no way would we be able to get it back to the car. Our car also got stuck in the mud trying to get out and had to be pushed on to metal grids which should have been all over the car park and festival. sort it out Download Festival!

  17. Graham Roberts says:

    Download Festival how much are day tickets from the box office please?

  18. Lucy Groves says:
