Highland fling 
Fort William

It’s what this year’s UCI Mountain Bike World Cup has been climbing towards – the summit of Aonach Mòr in the Scottish Highlands for the UK Downhill event.

The action kicks off on the Saturday, when 250-odd riders will be whittled down to 80 male and 20 female competitors for Sunday’s big finals. Expect plenty of British high rankers in the mix, including Athertons Gee and Rachel – 2014 men’s and 2015 women’s champs, respectively.

The UK’s hairiest outdoor moshpit, Download Festival, rears its banging head for yet another weekend of metal mayhem. Original headliners Iron Maiden take top billing with Black Sabbath and Rammstein on the respectfully renamed Lemmy Stage.

Culture Clash 
02, London

The biggest musical battle in the world is back: four stages, four music crews and one winner, judged by a crowd of 30,000 voting with their feet and lung power for the crew that’s killing it.

In 2014, Rebel Sound (David Rodigan, Chase & Status and Shy FX) took the title, blowing away their competitors with the heaviest sound, the most exclusive tunes, the most on-point disses and take-no-prisoners presentation. Who will take the trophy home this year?
