Download Festival held a special pilot event back in July, acting as a test for the return of camping festivals after COVID-19.
Reviewing the Download Pilot 2021, DIY wrote: "The Download Pilot is a weekend of pure euphoria, a showcase of the incredible talent in British rock and metal in 2021, and a chance to feel hopeful at the prospect of a future without social distancing or masks. It’s good to have you back, live music. Never leave us again."
