Hello my lovelies :)
So, I'm about to head off to live in a field for 4 nights/5 days, drink copious amounts of alcohol, make some amazing memories and rock out to some brilliant bands!
It's June, it's all about DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL 2012!!!
I've mentioned it on my blog a bit but if you follow me on Twitter, apols for the amount of tweets about Download...waaaaaayyyyyyy toooo exciiiiteeeeeeddddd!!!!!
Here's the full line up.
Absolutely ridic, I know.
Last year it was all about A7X, Black Stone Cherry, Bullet For My Valentine and System of a Down for me.
and when we were walking to the Main Stage and realised Skindred were on. Crazy moment where we suddenly saw tens of thousands of items of clothing being waved in the air doing the 'Newport Helicopter'. Skindred are back this year, I hope this happens again! See half way through video below...
This year, Metallica, Axewound, my faves - Kids in Glass Houses. I lose count of how many times I have now seen KIGH, I think this is between 10-12th time :) I saw them on my birthday last year at Wakestock, that was pretty rad. Watching my fave bad, front row, on my freakin' birthday!
2010 we missed due to my money and my sister's work commitments.
2009 was my first Download, that was ruled by Slipknot and Limp Bizkit for me.
There are some clashes between bands and stages this year but all in all there are 38/39 bands that I would love to see!
Download Festival has given me some of the best memories that I will always treasure. I've been to a few festivals and Download is different to every other. The people are crazy-funny and friendly, the experiences are brilliant and just everything, everything about the festival rocks! I'm always talking about memories of Download 2009 and 2011 and no doubt 2012 will provide more memories that I will go on about for the rest of my life.
I love watching videos back on Youtube and thinking 'I WAS THERE!'.
I've attached some videos of previous years that were stand out memories to me below.
Music is something that I am really passionate about and rock, whilst other genres will come and go, rock and metal are the genres that will always hold a place in my heart.
I hope you all had a great Bank Holiday Weekend and start to the week, have a great week and weekend ahead. We'll be coming home Sunday night after Black Sabbath, so home around 1:30am Monday morning. Blogging will commence Monday, when I will catch up on any comments and other blogs. I will then do posts on my recent outfits (Weekend/Week in Outfits) and the exciting Download Festival in Outfits post (this is likely to be poncho-full but I still plan to wear a different outfit every day/night! No matter the weather!) and then catching up on backlogged blog posts!
So, see you all when I'm back :)
