The Jager Rock Truck returns to Download Festival

Back by popular demand for the third year running, the Jäger Rock Truck presents its very own acoustic stage in a converted ex-military 25 tonne beast of a truck with a line up not to be missed. Over the course of the weekend, acts including American pop-punk bowling for soupband Bowling For Soup, Brit hard-rockers SKIN, London’s own Slaves to Gravity, fiery four-piece Obsessive Compulsive, Aussie-rockers Verses and fresh from their UK tour, Heaven’s Basement will all take to the stage to warm up the crowds at Download.
 
They’re joined by critically acclaimed Hyro Da Hero, Swedish rockers Royal Republic, Irish five-piece Million $ Reload, Glam rockers The Morning After, Maiden United with a fantastic acoustic tribute to the legendary Iron Maiden, funk-rocker Dan Reed, rock five-piece The Dirty Youth, critically-acclaimed Voodoo Johnson and the fantastic Red, White & Blues. Crowds can also enjoy an Ice Cold Jäger shot from the amazing Jäger Ice truck, which with its sub zero bar is a great way to cool down after rocking out to some superb music.
 
Further additions to the Red Bull Bedroom Jam Stage have also been announced, including dubstep four-piece Modestep, straight from their UK tour Don Broco, grunge-metal heads Kill 21, London rockers Fighting Wolves, Sweden’s H.E.A.T and electro rap/rock band You And What Army.
 
Additionally, organisers are pleased to announce the return of Download FM, powered by the award-winning Rock Radio for the third year running. Rock Radio proved in 2009 & 2010, that they know how to put on a good show with Download FM; the radio station on an RSL (restricted service licence) that broadcasts to the hundreds of thousands of music fans descending on Donington for the legendary festival, listening worldwide to the service online and through apps.
 
This year Rock Jocks, Tom Russell, Paul Anthony, Father Ted, Moose, Phil McCracken, Rachel Houghton and special guests will be presenting on Download FM along with Rock Radio network shows during the festival, with interviews from many of the bands on this year’s impressive line-up.
 
Following on from last year’s successful competition to host your own show on Download FM, another festival goer will get the chance, this June, to take control of the mic and present their very own radio show with full details being made available on Download’s official site very soon.
 
Brand Manager for Rock Radio, Ciaran O’Toole said, “The whole team at Rock Radio are busy gearing up for our third year broadcasting on Download FM.  Getting the chance to work with the fantastic team at Live Nation and deliver some top class, quality radio to Download’s festival goers, is a real honour & the station will add to the overall festival experience with all the latest news & information wrapped around the music of the acts playing live at the festival.
 
“With two years’ experience under our belts, we are extremely well placed to broadcast Download FM for 2011, from one of the best Rock Music festivals in the world.  Rock Radio is proud to power Download FM.”
