For the past few years, Download Festival have held a special handful of bands the day before the main festivities of the weekend take place, dictated by an online board held on their community forums.
It’s held at the Doghouse tent, typically situated in the festival village by the public campsites, and the warm-up of what’s to come on the Boardie Takeover stage will see sets from TheCityIsOurs, The Five Hundred, and more.
You can take a look at the line-up for the stage below.
Dead Man’s Whiskey
The Five Hundred
Sweet Little Machine
The Boardie Takeover will be held at the Doghouse Tent on June 13th 2019, with the first band heading onto the stage at 4:00pm.
This year’s Download Festival takes place on June 14th-16th 2019 at Donington Park, Derbyshire.
Tickets for the festival can be purchased online from the official website (here).
