The Scene
It's loud. It’s crazy. Download isn't pretty and the metal fans that make the annual pilgrimage to the spiritual home of rock in Dongington Park wouldn't have it any other way. The largest rock and metal festival in the UK has featured genre legends like Faith No More, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Slipknot, Motörhead, and System of a Down.
