Download 2008: Kiss and Lostprophets on bill


Story by Jack Foley

LOSTPROPHETS (pictured), Kiss and The Offspring have just been confirmed to headline this year’s Download Festival (2008).

The Donington Park event takes place between June 13 and 15 and will also features performances from Judas Priest, Mötorhead, H.I.M and Rise Against. Tickets are on sale now.

In keeping with the festival’s green focus in 2007, transport and waste will again be the focus of the organisers efforts to reduce Download’s overall carbon footprint in 2008.

Revellers at Download in 2007 certainly did their bit to help ease the strain on the environment, as statistics now show that over 2,100 fans participated in the Liftshare scheme; 17.6 tonnes of drinks cups, and over 60 tonnes of waste were recycled, and 633 pieces of camping equipment were donated to charity.

Further details of eco-friendly initiatives for 2008 will be revealed in due course, along with more new acts. Buy tickets now
