On June 20, Welsh metal legends Skindred stole the show at what was an historic Download Pilot event at Donington. Arriving onstage in the blazing sunshine, Benji Webbe and his crew put on a typically scintillating performance to a packed-out field of 10,000 rock fans.

It was one of the sets of the weekend, and we were on-hand to capture Skindred's walk to the Download main stage in an exclusive video which you can now watch below.
