Download Festival will be one of the highlights of this year's summer music festival scene, with the three-day event once again attracting some of the biggest names in rock – and you can be there.

We have two pairs of weekend tickets with three-nights camping — worth over £400 — to give away for the festival at Donington Park, Derbyshire, from June 9-11.

The headliners on the main stage are System of a Down on Friday, Biffy Clyro on Saturday and Aerosmith closing the festival on Sunday – the latter making their fifth appearance at Castle Donington, having made their debut in 1990.

Joe Perry, the band's guitarist, said: 'Every time we go on tour, I look at the schedule for cities, towns or events that I look forward to playing. Download is always one of the ones I circle. Donington is like home to us. I have some great memories playing there and I can't wait to make some more.'
