As Download Festival enters its 12th Year, the second biggest festival in the UK has played host to a range of the biggest rock and metal bands including AC/DC, Motorhead, and Iron Maiden. This year’s festival took place from the 12th to the 14th of June, with Slipknot, Muse, and Kiss headlining. The Indiependent has compiled this list of the 10 Best Acts that played over the course of the weekend.
10. In Hearts Wake
I was lucky enough to see the Australian metalcore band In Hearts Wake on the Saturday on the Maverick Stage. Seeing them in a tent suited the band down to the ground, and they did not disappoint. They played an energetic set with the majority of tracks coming from their excellent album Badlands, released earlier this year, along with some motivational speeches. This seemed to fit with the crowd, who sung every word back to the band, making for a wonderfully atmospheric start to the day.
