Download Festival promoter Andy Copping has spoken to NME ahead of this weekend's event in Donington Park, saying that festival has the strongest line-up in its 10-year history.

In a video interview which you can see above, Copping also said that the festival will give punters "anything that your heart desires. You are going to make a pact with the devil for this week. I love it."

Speaking about the festival getting to the 10-year mark, Copping added: "You want to be around forever... To get where we are now is an unbelievable achievement. 10 years in and having the biggest festival we've ever done, the biggest attended, the strongest line-up, is amazing."

The festival, which will be headlined by The Prodigy, Metallica and a reunited Black Sabbath, starts tomorrow (June 8) at Donington Park.
