rushonrock is on site and raring to go as the biggest rock and metal party in the world prepares to kick off!

Our men Hamish ‘Love Gun’ Grierson and Andy Spoors (The Merrier) will be checking in with bits and bobs throughout the weekend.

And the Love Gun – wearing his Monsters Of Rock ’91 tee – has already reported overcast but dry conditions as the doors into the main arena open for business.

He’ll be checking out long-time faves Lawmower Death later on and is considering a recommendation to check out Year Long Disaster and Tyketto to get his festival off to a suitably diverse start.

We’ll be bringing you updates from Castle Donington all weekend and full reviews of the biggest bands all next week. Enjoy!
