The Download Festival France, for its first year in 2016, let the French public speechless with Iron Maiden, Korn, Deftones, Megadeth, Ghost... The festival lands on the Plessis-Pâté / Brétigny sur Orge / Cœur d’Essonne BA217 air base, 30 minutes far from Paris. The size is as big as there is free parking and campsite.
Download's campsite area is so much more than the place you can get some kip. As well as campsite area, you gain access to food and drink stalls, and the kind of entertainment you just don't find anywhere else.
A cinema takes over the live shows, with alternative and gore movies.
Bands play on the Firefly Stage, only accessible for campers, and a DJ takes care of these who prefer to leave their sleeping bag to party.
System of A Down, Linkin Park, Greenday, Slayer, Gojira, Prophets or Rage or even Mastodon are ready to get onto the Download Festival Stage.

Former Guns N’ Roses and current Art of Anarchy guitarist, vocalist, and producer Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal has signed a deal with EMP LABEL GROUP who will re-release his epic 2015 independent solo release LITTLE BROTHER IS WATCHING on CD and vinyl DOUBLE LP August 25th, 2017.
Little Brother Is Watching is an eccentric, upbeat collection of epic, modern rock with haunting melodies, huge choruses and witty lyrics about life in the digital age and beyond, specifically, Thal’s own life and coming to terms with what we all face - beginnings, endings, and moving on. The album was composed, produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Bumblefoot at his studio in New Jersey, and includes a crowd of 100 fans stomping, chanting and singing backing vocals recorded at a listening party in New York. The day after its initial release, the album went as high as #4 on the Amazon.com Rock charts in Europe.
