Highlights from Download PILOT 2021

England's multi-day music festival Download returned this past weekend, albeit in a reduced capacity. According to The Guardian, "All attenders were required to submit negative lateral flow and PCR Covid test results before arrival, but once inside the festival gates there were no social distancing or face masks required. There was also no leaving, with all attenders required to camp for the full duration of the three-day festival."

On day 1, Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes played a 16-song set with two live debuts.

On Saturday, Enter Shikari ripped into a 17-song set with several live debuts, opening with the very first live performance of "THE GREAT UNKNOWN." Fans were also treated to the debut of "modern living" and although "satellites**" and "{ the Dreamers Hotel }" had been performed via livestream, this is the first time the crowd got to do some mutual moshing while the band played. See their full setlist:
