Fans of Download Festival have raised more than £75,000 for the NHS.

The goliath rock and metal event will sadly not take place in 2020, with coronavirus making the festival untenable.

Joining a groaning list of postponements, the Download team decided to flip that negativity upside down and help out the NHS.

A limited edition t-shirt design went on sale, and has so far raised just over £75,000 - a huge contribution at a vital time.

The amount will be donated to NHS Charities Together, and as a special bonus Download will continue making the tees, and giving the funds to the health service.

And don't get too downhearted - Download returns next summer, June 4th - 6th.
