As each day rolls on the excitement for the upcoming Download Festival just gets that little bit more.
Well as a treat to help us get through the week, Download have announced the WWE’s NXT will be returning to the hallowed grounds at Donnington Park with names like Adam Cole, Aleister Black, Kairi Sane and more all set to make an appearance at the metal festival. Not many festivals put on wrestling shows as big as WWE to go alongside music line up so this is something not to be missed.

The metal circus has arrived as Avatar will be featured on the main stage for the first time.
