The third and final day at Download Festival with Tool headlining and Slayer playing their last ever UK show.

Sunday at Download Festival 2019 is here and the elves have been out in force overnight covering the gloopy brown stuff in straw. 

Four Scandinavian pirates invaded the press room ahead of Amon Amarth's main stage performance - the planet's premier Viking-themed metal band. Fortunately there was no pillaging. 

They also flanked Download Festival booker Andy Copping as he addressed the press:
