Download Festival Set To Honour Jim Marshall At This Years Festival
Download Festival organiser Andy Copping has announced that the
festival will be paying tribute to Marshall Amps founder Jim
Marshall this year.
In a move that will see the event rename it's main stage for one
year only, Copping tweeted: "The main stage at Download this
year is going to be named The Jim Marshall Stage as a tribute to
the great wall of speakers & amps man."
Andy also went on to say: "The music industry lost an innovator
and a legend with the sad passing of Jim Marshall. We had to
remember him in some way and having the main stage dedicated to his
name seemed the perfect tribute."
