Passengers travelling to and from East Midlands Airport during the weekend of Friday 14 – Sunday 16 June should allow plenty of time for their journeys because of the Download Festival at Donington Park.

Tens of thousands of people are expected at the three-day rock festival which features Def Leppard, Slash, Slipknot and Slayer amongst others.

Surrounding roads, including the M1, A42, A50 and A453, are likely to be very busy over the weekend.

Donington Park is located next to East Midlands Airport, four miles west of junction 23a of the M1 and five miles from junction 24.

Highways England will use electronic message boards on surrounding motorways to advise people of any delays. Extra traffic officers are also being deployed at key road junctions for the duration of the festival.
