We're glad you've asked.

Alongside the ridiculous amount of acts on this year, Download Festival also has a bevy of sideshows and activities to watch and take part in.

2019 will see the return of DO.OMYOGA and will encourage revellers to get moshing fit with ROCK FIT- a heavy metal exercise class - making its festival debut.

Also returning to the festival is The Download Village, which plays host to food and drinks stalls, The Sindrome Arena, which will showcase death-defying stunts, The Doghouse, which features the Circus of Horrors and the UK Air Guitar Championships- which speaks for itself.

See some of the activities here:

Download Festival will also make history as WWE NXT UK will record for the first time ever on site for their weekly show on the WWE Network.

WWE United Kingdom Champion Pete Dunne, NXT UK Women’s Champion Toni Storm, and Tyler Bate, superstars Trent Seven, Walter, Rhea Ripley, Jordan Devlin, NXT UK Tag Team Champions The Grizzled Young Veterans, Travis Banks, Gallus and many more will descend upon Download for a weekend of high flying manoeuvers, action-packed matches and unexpected surprises.
