Didn't go this year, the lineups get progressively worse. I'd have liked to have seen Anathema though.

and a couple of other bands, let me think...

Did you not see the lineup?!?! You thought that wasn't a good line up?!


It kind of depends on your taste. I'm more of a Bloodstock guy, to be honest.

I was supposed to have gone.
But I couldn't afford the ticket in the end, or spare the time I'm completly gutted I missed it really.

If your savvy and can time it well you can get one cheap on ebay a couple of days before from touts panic selling

Got mine at £110, saved myself 80 quid.

I'd have liked to have seen The More I See too, pretty good band. The line-up wasn't horrible, just the headliners need some major re-thinking.

**** yes it was awesome.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.

My friend offered to lend me the money for the ticket.
But it was also the weekend where our accomodation contract at uni ends. too much hassle having to move out and then go download too. Maybe next year.

I really enjoyed it...Got back like an hour ago and it was such a fun weekend. It's not just about the lineup (although, it personally appealed to my tastes), it's about the company you're with and the atmosphere.

I went, and I'll repeat what I said in the other thread - biggest waste of time and money I've had the misfortune to suffer through for quite some time. Walked out halfway through Megadeth, packed up and went home.

Sounds a bit unusual, you happily paid money to go to Download, then packed up all your shit during Megadeth, and went home? Next time you want to waste money just PayPal it to me, I'll happily take it off your hands!

Happily? No. I was badgered into going by several friends, and bought a cut-price ticket off ebay.

And I love Megadeth, but the correct emotions to be feeling during them playing what was a very good set are definately not boredom and irritation. Which is what I was feeling.

Luckily the camping wednesday and thursday was fantasic, so the good just about balanced out the bad. And I missed the terrible weather on Sunday, so, meh.

Festivals just aren't for me. They just utterly piss me off for a variety of reasons.

Hey fair enough man, honestly. Still though, if you bothered to pay to go to Download, you should have stuck around, that's all I'm saying.

That's what everyone keeps telling me

Oh well, I experienced it, didn't like it, and it didn't stop the other 95000+ people having a damn good time.

And did anyone else think the sound from the main stage was awfully bad on Friday/part of Saturday? I still have no idea whether I like Unearth or 36 crazyfists as all I heard was a muddy wash of sound.
