The Download Festival to take place in the spiritual home of rock Castle Donington that is set to kick off this Friday, is about to attempt the world record for "the Most People Made Up As KISS".

The message on the festival website reads:

"We have joined forces with FACE, the official body of face-painters who are providing at least of 20 professional face-painters in order to achieve our goal! - We hope to be able to set a record for over 400 faces painted within 3 hours.

Face painting by our accredited painters is FREE, please don't do your own make up - remember - in order to break the record, we can only accept faces painted by FACE members. Expert face paint makers, Mehron, are very kindly sponsoring the attempt by providing all the necessary paint...

The attempt will take place on Friday 13 June with face painting starting at 13:00 and finishing at 16:00. - The face painters stations will be based in and on the edge of 'Kidney Wood' which is the kidney shaped green area close to the day ticket entrance in the Main Arena.

The stations will be split into four sections concentrating on each of the faces - The Demon, Star Child, The Cat and The Spaceman.

Once you've had your face painted, you'll given details of where to congregate to be part of our mass KISS award-winning photograph!"

KISS are set to headline the first day of the festival, and also original KISS guitarist Ace Frehley is set to play the second day with his solo band.

KISS is too obvious, they should've done Immortal instead.

Yes, it is. I have the three Kiss dvd boxes and looking at shots of the crowds there at their gigs there area couple of thousand with painted faces usually.

Sounds cool, I'd be Spaceman or Starchild. If I was there, that is...
