Next week will kick off Download 2008, a music festival taking over three cities on three different days bringing you both music you already know and love and great music from your new favorite bands. The festival will take place in San Francisco on July 19th at Shoreline Amphitheatre at Mountain View, in Los Angeles on the following day, July 20th at Gibson Amphitheatre and will then make its way over to the East Coast for a date in Philadelphia (win a trip!) on August 2nd at Susquehanna Bank Center (OK, technically Camden, NJ).
Some of the bands playing this year’s Download Festival include: Mates of State, Cut / Copy, Tapes ‘N Tapes, Yeasayer, M83, Brand New, Datarock, Man Man, The Killers and more! Check out the official website for the line-up of each city’s Download Festival.
