Travel Advice - Download Festival

We recommend customers allow extra journey time when travelling to and from the airport whilst Download Festival is underway from 12 – 16 June.

The three-day event takes place at Donington Park next to the airport from 14 - 16 June, with campsites opening from midday on Wednesday 12 June. As the UK’s largest rock festival, it is expected to be attended by around 75,000 people.

Significant traffic is therefore expected during the event, affecting all roads around the airport including the M1, A42, A50 and A453.

Please check your journey before you travel. You can find useful information on the Traffic England website.
