Download organisers issued new traffic advice this week to avoid a repeat of the “unprecedented” congestion that occurred last year.

Meanwhile, festival boss Andy Copping has revealed that a “big band” will perform a surprise set at next week’s event.

“One thing’s for sure, you’ve got to keep your eyes and ears peeled for this year at Download because, yes, we have another band coming in doing a secret set,” he explained.

“Something very, very special. Big band. So look out for that.”

In other news, Funeral For A Friend recently replaced Bad Omens on the Download ’24 line-up. The latter band announced that they’d pulled out last month due to frontman Noah Sebastian suffering from “extreme burnout”.
