Sunday Slaylist: Download Festival 2014 – the bands you DON’T know

Download 2014 Bands You Don't Know Thrash Hits

In one week’s time from when we write this, we will be at Download Festival 2014. For three whole days, we will join approximately 100,000 other rock fans to help turn Donington Park into the biggest weekend in the UK rock calendar. Last week our Slaylist tackled the big names on the bill, so this week we’re scaling it back a bit to take on the new guys, the weirdos, and the bands you just haven’t heard of.

Now we know that’s a bit of a subjective set of criteria – what’s new and weird to one person is old and predictable to another. But you know what? Tough. If you think we’re wrong, tell us why on Twitter. You really should be following us by now anyway. You definitely ought to be following us (and on Instagram too) if you want to see all the cool stuff we’re going to get up to at Download Festival this year.

Spotify is available to most of Europe, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, and a load of other countries for free – though obviously you’re better off shelling out either £5 or £10 a month for one of Spotify’s premium packages, as then you can listen to our Slaylists without having them interrupted by adverts. For our readers in countries not currently serviced by Spotify….Download Festival 2014 is less than a week away so get on a plane and come watch these bands play at Donington for real.
