Campsite info
No-one will be allowed onto the campsite without proof that they also have a ticket for the Arena. This will be policed across the festival weekend. You will not be allowed to camp without a camping ticket! A camping ticket lasts for the whole weekend or just one night, it’s the same price. You will not be permitted to sleep in your car, please expect a rude awakening if you try...!

Disabled
All disabled customers are welcome at Download, but as it is a greenfield site there are steep stony hilly sections of the site, meaning that sometimes access across the site is not that easy. Stewards however, will be around to assist.

Live Nation provides a number of facilities in the arena and campsite to accommodate disabled customer's needs, should you have any enquiries regarding the access and facilities at the festival, please email access@downloadfestival.co.uk

Safety and Security
Always know where your nearest emergency exits are, follow the instructions of Security Personnel, Police or other officials. Move away promptly from any danger and notify a Steward, Police or Official if you see any any antisocial behaviour. Ask for help if you need it and help others, especially if someone falls during moshing. 

Once on site it is important to plan your day. Obviously the priority is making sure you get to see the acts that mean the most to you, band times will be issued before the festival.

If you are with friends & are camping together or travelling home together, arrange a place & time to meet up at the end of the night.

Large crowds, a long day & hot weather in combination will tire you out. Make sure you pace yourself, drink plenty of water, eat some food that will give you some energy & minimize sun exposure.
