Download Festival – Metal, Mud and Mayhem

Metallica's Sunday night headline slot in June 2004 was not without its hitches when drummer Lars Ulrich was rushed to hospital. Taking to the stage an hour-and-a-half late, James Hetfield explained the situation and the show began with Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo playing on 'Battery' and 'The Four Horsemen'. Slipknot's Joey Jordison played the rest of the set apart from 'Fade To Black', which was played by Metallica's drum technician, Flemming Larsen. They closed the set with classic single 'Enter Sandman'. Photo: PA Photos
