Download 2004

Another stage was added to the festival in this year, bringing the total to three. 72 Bands played over the two days. The 2004 event was also noticeable for several last minute hitches. Firstly Soil got lost on the way to Donington and missed their main stage appearance on Saturday (they later joined Drowning Pool on stage to perform Drowning Pool's "Bodies" and their own song "Halo"). Static-X missed their slot due to a bus breakdown. Sunday was no better - Slayer arrived on time, but their equipment did not, leading to a slot change from the middle of the afternoon on the main stage to a later slot (and longer set) on the second stage. Slayer were replaced on the main stage by Damageplan, who were scheduled to play the second stage. Their setlist ended with a rendition of Damageplan founders Vinnie Paul and Dimebag Darrell's most recognisable song from their Pantera days, "Walk".

Controversy

On the Saturday, Main Stage act Korn lost lead singer Jonathan Davis after he was hospitalised over concerns for bruises on his body. After observation, it was discovered that Davis had contracted a rare blood disease and could not perform at the event. Several different acts contributed singers to fill in for Davis, who each appeared with the rest of the band for a shorter set.[8]


Throughout most of the festival, bottles were thrown around the crowd, mostly in a harmless manner. However, during the Sunday headline set of Guns N' Roses, one or more bottles landed on the stage. This caused problems after the band's lead singer, Axl Rose, slipped on the wet surface and a bottle filled with urine apparently hit bassist Tommy Stinson. Stinson threw his bass, accidentally hitting one of the cameramen, and left the stage. He returned after the song and apologized, but warned the crowd that if this activity continued, he would leave for good. There were some disturbances but they eventually died down, and later in the set Rose commented "I'm actually having quite a good time now! I couldn't have said that an hour ago!"[9] Bottling is when a concert audience throws things at the performers onstage. ... W. Axl Rose[1][2] (born William Bruce Rose, Jr. ...

On the final night, fires were started by some festival goers and police were called, arresting twelve people.[10]. At around 4am, the fire brigade arrived to put out a large fire at the gold campsite. A number of people had taken the railings that had been used to separate the campsite area from the path and used them to barricade the road to prevent the fire engines from reaching the main fire. At this point a number of police assembled in riot gear, and proceeded to stop the troublemakers. The festival director, Stuart Galbraith, posted a message on the official website stating that "About 150 people spoiled the end of what had been a great weekend for over 75,000 of us." [11]

New site layout

The 2008 festival had a significantly different layout to that of the previous years in that the festival arena area was situated in land to the west of the race track instead of the traditional venue of the race track infield area. Notable amongst numerous changes is that the second, 'Tuborg', stage became larger and moved from a marquee to an open-air format, located on a tarmac car park.[20]


It appears that Live Nation had little choice over the changes to the layout as Donington Park had converted most of the infield area into a Motocross course since the 2007 festival. The campsites were located in their usual place, at the North-East of the racetrack, resulting in the long walk for campers as the organizers were unable to arrange access to more convenient campsite locations with local landowners, it is however rumoured that this issue will be resolved for the 2009 festival. An anonymous source within Live Nation has suggested however that 2009's festival will actually not take place at Donington Park, and so they are currently looking for another venue. The lengthy walk from the campsite to the main stage has been a source of strong criticism by festival-goers on the Festival's official website forums, and the new layout in general received a mixed reception. Live Nation NYSE: LYV is a concert company based in the United States of America. ... Motocross often takes place in wet weather, leading to muddy scenes such as this and hence the term Scrambling.
