After the rip-roaring success of its inaugural year, DO.OMYOGA™ will return in 2019. The classes are free and will host up to 250 Metal Yoga enthusiasts, experts and beginners enjoying alternative relaxation and practising their Download-facing Dog to the sound of songs from the heavier end of the music spectrum.
Elsewhere, the will be an array of delights at The SINDROME Arena, Area 51 and their wandering Caravan of Lost Souls, the premiere of the death-defying Thunderdome and the massively popular ‘Demolition Download’ from Battle Heritage will return.
Deep in the Woods in the heart of the Village, The Metal Den can be discovered - where revellers can lay in hammocks and savour Download’s very first Outdoor Cinema The Metal Screen and its hand curated Cineprogram.
The UK Air Guitar Championships also makes its feted return to Download, as does The World’s Greatest Wall of Death and the Circus of Horrors.
