Download Festival has hosted WWE NXT in it’s own tent for the past couple of years, entertaining fans who get to see some of the up and coming talent alongside some of their favourite acts. A few months ago, the WWE finally announced we were getting our own WWE brand with NXT UK and now the NXT shows at the festival will be taped for the WWE NXT live recordings!
WWE UK champion Pete Dunne will be returning to the festival following his 2017 escapades including crashing the end of Junior‘s set, with his championship rival Mark Andrews performing with the Welsh pop-punks. NXT UK women’s champion Toni Storm and British favourite Tyler Bate will also feature! We can also expect to see Walter, Trent Seven, Rhea Ripley, Jordan Devlin and the UK tag-team champions The Grizzled Young Veterans among many more to take to the ring.
Back to the music and we have seventeen more acts announced: Allusinlove, Cloud, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Goodbye June, Graveyard, Hot Milk, Kim Jennett, Kvelertak, Lost Society, Nova Twins, Queen Zee, ROAM, Simple Creatures, The Hu, The Picturebooks, The Wonder Years and Vambo!
