The Download Festival was conceived as a follow up to the Monsters of Rock festivals which had been held at the Donington Park circuit between 1980 and 1996. The first Download Festival was created by Stuart Galbraith and co-booked by Andy Copping in 2003 in the same location. Download was initially a two-day event, expanding to three days in 2005.

A friend of mine who was at the download festival told me that the bottle which hit the Guns n Roses bassist was filled with urine, so I added that detail. How exactly would your friend have known that as a fact unless they personally threw it or stood next to the person throwing it? Please dont include infomation where your only source is from 'a friend' who was in a crowd of many thousands and probabley nowhere near the incident. -Reue- I see you point in this but I have also heard from many people that the bottle was full of urine. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 21:21, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
The user with IP 18.104.22.168 has been making numerous silly edits, and still believes that "James Dodd" has a claim to fame as organising Metallica's surprise gig at Download festival. This is clearly immature nonsensical tripe and I can personally vouch for this fact being fabricated, albeit not maliciously. These are anonymous edits. As a side point, the vandal should not spend time editing an encyclopaedia that he thinks is a waste of time; his continuous efforts to undermine this wealth of (pseudo-)knowledge appears to vindicate Wikipedia's position as one of the greatest resources of information available. Some of you may remember an article about "James Dodd" with this claim which was then put up for deletion. The result was, of course, delete. Masud20:02, 30 January 2006 (UTC) I think Masud is getting ideas above his station. He is not Mr. Wikipedia, nor is anyone for that matter. Wikipedia is about the accuracy and integrity of ideas and knowledge, not about boosting one's...
all the edits on this page recently are because of some download festival boardies goofing around offending page any way to lock the page? until it blows over Jamie-planetx21:20, 21 March 2006 (UTC)

Jamie-planetx11:32, 13 April 2006 (UTC)
i've never heard of this twisted realm thing DOES USER: x-rATED have any proof of it actual involvement with the festival? Jamie-planetx11:32, 13 April 2006 (UTC) Jamie-planetx: Twisted Realm dose exist - the details are on my website and you look it up on the offical download website for proof. Furter to that, I would like to point it is not offically involved with the festival - it's just a promoter and a few bands getting together on campfield playing some songs. -23:07, 24 April 2006 SanityFreeZone im not sure about this, the entry should stay it seems to be the only media coveraged your gonna get, im not sure what you plan to do i mean do you have a stage is it the NEW campsite stage, live nation have already stated that there will be non-stop campsite entertainment this year do you plan to be apart of that? or DO YOU PLAN TO OUT-DO IT? im just checkin the site and there is bugger all there, but if you mean the boards i feel very sorry for you. i do have semi-high respect for s...
i thought of placing the 2006 section into a new page and keep this page to concern the history of the download festival i thought the 2006 section looked clutered and out of place, i have named the page This years download festival so it can be re-edited to contain information about future download festivals i have removed previous talk about 2006 and applyied it to the This years download festival talk page.--22.214.171.12423:30, 1 May 2006 (UTC) 1. Sounds like a good idea to me, the current page is always suseptable to vanadalism from people placing fake line ups so it could solve some problems. But the articles would need to be merged after the festival is it really worth it? --Seth Turner 07:10, 4 May 2006 (UTC) 1.1. yeah i was kinda ticked about that Jamie-planetx21:06, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
Again, like the page that was merged with this article, this page is becoming increasingly annoying to maintain, people keep adding bands to the lineup that arent playing. Even more annoying is that they're badly spelt so it looks even more unprofessional. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by BenjMartin (talk • contribs) 10:16, May 5, 2006 (UTC) I suggest that this page get locked from editing by new users and non users. -- BenjMartin 1. 1.1. Someone at the IP of 126.96.36.199 keeps editing this article and adding false bands to the lineup. This article needs locked. --BenjMartin why it's constantly needing updated? such as your myspace a few bits of false information are easily spotted and rectified by the likes of us. Jamie-planetx21:06, 5 May 2006 (UTC) 1. 1.1. I meant locked from new users and non users. --BenjMartin 1.1.1. Ok REALLY starting to take the piss now. I have had to revert edits about 6 times over the weekend. --BenjMartin 1.2. No worries, I have requested sem...

Korn didn't play at all (even though they were meant to), instead Alice in Chains played main stage. Conorobradaigh01:20, 12 June 2006 (UTC) The rumour out in the feild was that the guitarist broke his wrist during a drinking session the night before. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs) 16:20, June 12, 2006 (UTC) 1. korn played at rock am ring here, but i think their best days a over yet :( 1. there is a major break since the old guitarist has been brainwashed by the U.S. religious right and left the band. the drummer isnt as cool before, too. 1. im little disappointed. 1.

Can someone add information on the two festivals from '06 that took place in the US? Informative link. I don't know enough about the connection between the two "branches" (UK/US) to do so intelligently. --Dante Alighieri | Talk23:56, 2 October 2006 (UTC) theyre not so much a rock/metal festival in the vein of previous donington festivals, they are much smaller events and feature bands such as the killers, etc.
