Now into its second year, Download Paris has unveiled their running order and stage times for 2017’s incarnation taking place from 9th – 11th June. Held at Plessis-Pâté / Brétigny sur Orge / Cœur d’Essonne BA217 air base; it’s a short thirty minutes from France’s capital city. Free shuttle buses will be available from Bretigny-sur-Orge station which is located on the RER C line.
Much like it’s big brother of the UK’s annual Donington event, its line-up caters for all tastes of rock and metal with headliners Linkin Park, System of a Down and Green Day alongside acts like Slayer, Blues Pills, Alter Bridge, RavenEye, Mastodon, The Cadillac Three, Solstafir and everything else imaginable.
Alongside that, there’s a stage exclusive for campers, a cinema, a DJ to keep you entertained into the small hours of the morning, world foods and a metal market, presumably where one can pick up all sorts of rock and metal trinkets. Essentially, if you’ve been or know much about the UK version, it’s like that but likely without the infamous mud. Importantly as well, the line-up isn’t a carbon copy so it may be that it appeals more to you than ours.
