PopEx ≫ 2003 ≫ Press release about Download Festival

Anyone here seeing them this weekend?

Got this press release from Clear Channel, who are the promoters of the Download Festival1...

We are huge Metallica fans at Download and would be honoured to have them performing at our festival. However, they are not confirmed to play at Download. We gather a rumour was started when we added Apocalyptica to the bill earlier this week.

So... was it meant to be a secret little show, and now it's been blown by the press2? They are still doing a cheeky little show at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith, for Channel Four... capacity TWO HUNDRED, what is that going to be like?
