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."
