Download Festival 2024 is on the horizon! All the build-up, all the excitement, will soon be realised as tens of thousands of devoted punters grace Donington once again. As we gear up closer to the event, this site will transform in to all things Download Festival - you may have noticed already that we've been digging through the archives to bring you content covering bands on this year's playlist from over the years.

As ever with our Download Festival preview coverage, we're kicking things off with our mega Room Thirteen Download Festival playlist. Stick this on and listen to all the bands you can't wait to see, discover something new you may be able to squeeze in to your schedule and have a bloody good time.
