I was wondering if going to download 08 would be recommended.

I've heard some of the bands that are playing and i just want to go so bad.

First of all: where is download festival situated in the uk?

and second of all: how much would the tickets cost approximately?

Thanks

Now I have your attention, witness the awesomeness that is my sig

It depends on whether or not you like festivals, I guess. I don't know how much tickets are, but Download is in Donnington.
#5
tickets depend on if you wonna go for a day or the whole gig. And it is situated at Donnington Park.

Even their new stuff?
Anyways, your taste.

I love RATM and hope to hell there's a chance of me having money for when the second release of tickets comes.

Was going to but Lostprophets headlining? **** that. Motorhead and Judas Priest are cool though.
#18
download does indeed suck balls this year, I for one am boycotting it. Shame as it's just such a cool place to be otherwise.

And it's in derbyshire way

Who are you to say that the TS is better off going to another festival? Maybe he, god forbid, LIKES THE BANDS THAT ARE CONFIRMED FOR DOWNLOAD?
#21
I've been to Download and it is a terrible festival... it usually managed to get a really good lineup, but the actual grounds, festival and atmosphere are rubbish. I hated it, and I'm a big festival goer!
#22
The headliners this year are hilarious, you can tell they put all their effort into getting Rage and lost out. The general lineup looks alright though.

Alright, I'll give them a try, Japanese Black Speed rarely disappoints.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

Really? I thought the atmosphere was great, especially on the campsite. On more than one occassion have me and my Download going friends have made impromptu band sessions with neighbouring campers using crappy acoustic guitars and pots for drums. Much fun, and always have a great time.

Less than a month to go until I'm there now!
No, Download does not suck this year. And reading isn't better than Download.
(I'm going to both...)
