Crossfire storms Download Festival!

Crossfire took Download Festival at Castle Donington by storm on Friday and Saturday night with killer sets from Enter Shikari, Gallows and our resident Crossfire DJs Zac Slack and the legendary James Sherry.

The Duracell Powerhouse tent was bursting at the seams by eleven, hundreds of metal fans rocking out, with classic metal hitting the airwaves on day one. Following their triumphant set on the Dimebag Darrell stage that evening, trance/rock upstarts Enter Shikari took to the decks around midnight on Friday, with fans packed into the tent, the crowds going mad for Slayer, Refused, Rage Against The Machine and even Madness!

Glo-sticks and mosh pits, head banging and raving all came together in a night that kicked everyone’s arse. Crowds spilt out into the pathway, everyone plastered in Crossfire stickers and partying like there was no tomorrow. Shikari’s 30 minute set went out the window, and 2 hours later, they were still rocking out to Slayer, with this live version of the ‘Heavy Shit Show‘.

Crossfire and Enter Shikari took partying to a whole new level….and then handed the gauntlet to Gallows for the live None More Punk show on Saturday night. The Crossfire Sound System was on 11 as Gallows destroyed the tent with their choices for a crowd of over 2000 people who just went nuts for 4 hours. who didn’t disappoint and tore the entire festival a new one.

Expect more in the very near future…
