Rock and Wrestling at Download Festival
Monday 17 July, 2017
The Field and Lawn team is well versed in providing marquee structures at festivals to serve a variety of purposes. Whether it’s first aid, catering, hospitality, toilets - we have the marquee for the job. However, when a festival requires a marquee structure purely for professional wrestling, you know you’re working on something special.
Featuring over 100 acts over 3 days, the 2017 Download Festival took place in June at Donnington Race Circuit. Working with Download for the 9th year running, Field and Lawn was the sole clearspan structure provider for the festival delivering 15,000 square metres of space for crew catering, hospitality, all-important shower structures and the 30m span structure to house the wrestling ring for the NXT Superstars.
With headline acts Aerosmith and Biffy Clyro bringing in huge crowds, the rain thankfully stayed away, meaning that our kit and transport was in and out as quick as possible, and ready to be turned around for the next location - music to our ears!
2017’s festival may be over but, like any festival, tickets are on sale and plans are already in place for next year’s festival. With 14 years under its belt, Download continues to be a firm favourite in the summer festival line-up, and we can’t wait to hear who will be on the staggering line-up for 2018.
