“Thank god for the music!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Just returned from 3 days camping at donington for the download music festival, of course the bands were amazing but no organisation again! the stewards are okay but they have'nt got a clue, last year we visited as day passes this year we went for the 3 days camping, no i understand that 90, 000 people went this year and it felt like it too, we arrived at 11am friday and was told there was only pitches left in orange campsite, completly the other side to the entrance it was all up hill, the walk felt forever but it was more like 1 hour 45 minutes, finally we put the tent up! The main arena was a good 45 min walk too, although the bands were ace... we all came back shattered such a BIG park, i would have liked to have been given the heads up!

“Good value day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Great days out for the family, if you have kids that like motor sports take them here. Most events kids under 14/15 go free with a paying adult.

“Download Festival last year was amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

Best weekend of my life.. the camping site is huge, you get lost, it's wet, raining, everything costs the earth to buy, queues for the loos are ridiculous and if you are lucky, you'll get a warm shower in the cubicles early in the morning and it can seem hard to enjoy yourself at first. Just get drunk and all your problems disappear. Banging times

Just go there! It is easy to find, the grounds are well kept, the viewing areas are fantastic, and what's not to like? There's motorsports involved?!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

Great day, made better for the good weather.
Better tannoy system needed urgently.
Toilets could be modernised.
Still a great track.
Getting in and out of the circuit was brilliant.
