On Saturday, there’s looking to be a bit of a downpour around lunchtime, with a 90 per cent chance of rain, as well as a bit of cloud on Sunday. Peep the full weekend’s forecast below.

Download Festival has also released a statement regarding the weather, saying:

“Expect intermittent rain with a small chance of thunderstorms in the early evening and temperatures in the early 20’s. However, be sure to keep checking the local weather as it is ever changing.

“No umbrellas will be permitted into the festival, so please make sure you bring raincoats otherwise we will have ponchos available at the merchandise tents. Download festival will proceed rain, hail or shine.”

Besides whipping out your best raincoat and gumboots combo for the festival, it’s also going to help to familiarise yourself with the official set times, festival map and signing tent times.
