Following the incredible news that this year’s Main Stage at Download Festival was renamed the Stephen Sutton Stage in his memory; we are excited to reveal that an amazing £11,035 was raised for Teenage Cancer Trust via fundraising on site.

Held at Donington Park on 13-15 June and headlined by Avenged Sevenfold, Linkin Park and Aerosmith, we received 30% of all guest list donations as well as holding bucket collections across the arena throughout the weekend – a huge thank you to everyone who donated or came over to say hello!

On Friday 13 the Heavy Metal Truants cycle ride arrived at the festival shortly after midday, while there was also a minute-long round of applause on the Stephen Sutton Stage in his memory before a mass #thumbsupforstephen took place.
