Whilst the forced break has been a low point for Download and the entire festival calendar, the team have been busy working away on a series of site improvements to ensure that once returned to full capacity they'll be delivering the best experience possible.

Many of the site improvements have occurred as a result of listening to it's loyal fanbase. In summary you can expect the below in 2022:

- The Village has moved closer to the Arena.
- The Village will also now be located across hard-standing ground.
- In 2022, Download will be partnering with Trees For Cities as well as introducing Circular Camping which includes upcycled tents and camping equipment.
- Walking distances decreased due to relocation for all campsites.
- East Car Park now added to the site.
- Download punters to decide the new campsite names! More info to follow...
