There's no question about it - this year's Download festival is going to be WET.
But no one has ever let a little mud get in the way of rock and roll, and with a line-up as impressive as this year's Donnington event, mother nature has got her work cut out to put a dampener on 2012 essential British rock festival.
From rock legends such as Metallica, Black Sabbath, Trivium and NOFX to young rock upstarts such as Black Veil Brides, You Me At Six, Yashin and many more, check out the must see bands of this year's Download festival before you pack your waterproofs and head off for a weekend of pure rock and roll...
