Has anyone else been watching the lineup for Download this year. I went through the list, and bar the ones I hadn't heard of (only a couple, so it won't make too much difference) there were only 5 bands that I thought deserved to be there e.g. Black Dahlia Murder, Throwdown, Children of Bodom.

Last year, My ****ing Chemical Romance were headlining the 2nd day. They got booed and bottled from start to finish. This year, we have The Offspring, Lostprophets and Kiss. The Offspring I won't even bother, neither Lostprophets, but Kiss? Surely they should just do something small on a smaller stage, not ****ing headline a metal festival after doing **** al for so long?

The other bands aren't much better; Madina Lake? Simple Plan? H.I.M? Rise Against? and this ones shameful... KID ROCK! Some ****ing white rapper is 'playing' at Download. The list of disappointments go on. Where are all the bands people want to see? Machine Head, anyone?

I ****ing hope they realise this travesty so they can correct it for next year, or eventually there's gonna be no difference between Download and Give It a Name.

Stop being a pretentious ass or not go if it bothers you that much.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

It is rubbish. The solution is to not go.


But I really wanted to! I couldn't last year, and this year I just don't want to

i don't think i'm going to go this year anyway, i can't afford it. there's a few bands i wouldn't mind seeing, and i'm not pretentious enough to hate everything that's not "metal", but there's not enough bands i really really like for me to spend that much on.

Well it's crap, so find a better festival. Try Bloodtock, they've got Opeth, Iced Earth and At The Gates playing. Or Leeds/Reading, where they'll probably have Metallica and RATM.
#12
Judas Priest and Motorhead are on it at least
i dig the Offspring so I really cant complain about them, but they shouldnt be headlining

Never said I was. I don't hate all the bands on there that I don't think should be there. For instance, I like Fightstar, but I don't think they should be at Download

the only good bands at download are COB and incubus. i've seen incubus twice, and they're almost as good live as the blue man group


Same here, seen Incubus twice, but they were better than The Blue Man Group.

A lot of festivals seem to be rapidly degrading now. I only end up going to festivals for 1 or 2 acts nowadays, only if they are really special acts though.

i've only seen incubus live once, but it was probably one of the best gigs i've been to, lol. i'd love to see em again, but like i said... £150 to see a few bands i like...meh.

i'm not really bothered about any of the headliners, and i don't really listen to lots of the other bands. there were some great bands in the last couple of years, but they don't really seem to give the really popular and well liked bands enough credit, if you know what i mean.

My friend really wanted to go this year, till I showed him the lineup. I think its terrible to be honest. Download is expensive enough without faggy emo bands playing instead of Mastodon or someone good.

look, download was a metal festival when it was called donnington, but now its just a music festival, however sh*t that may be
#29
Just go to Bloodstock instead.

I'm not that bothered about it to be honest, the bands I do want to see i can just watch them on the internet because I'm a poor bastard and I'm damn proud.

O comon, I'm hardly being elitist. If Download is a metal festival, for people who want to see metal, you don't put Simple Plan on stage. I'm not saying that every festival should be metal because all other genres are inferior.

Ok maybe Grime...

This doesn't look like that bad of a show. Since when was the Download Festival strictly metal anyway?

Kiss? Surely they should just do something small on a smaller stage, not ****ing headline a metal festival



I hope your not serious. Kiss are iconic mate. They have been an inspiration to so many "metal" musicians. They well deserve to headline metal festivals. Thats like saying Led Zeppelin shouldn't play cause they haven't done anything in ages either, yet they played one gig, and it was in popular demand.
