The Download Festival rocked U.K.’s Donnington Park in Leicestershire last weekend, with bands like Megadeth, Anthrax, Lamb of God, Machine Head and Trivium tearing up the stage.

It was such an epic event that Megadeth bassist David Ellefson called Download “the crème de la crème of metal festivals.”
