Hi All,

Mods, I hope it is okay to post this here...I was wondering if I should place it in the Chit / Chat section instead as I am posting about Download in General, not just Rammstein. Please feel free to move it if necessary or if it is inappropriately allocated

So, who is all going? What days are you going on or do you have a full weekend pass? Those who have been before, please tell us your experiences. Did you meet bands? How was it? How long were the sets that were played etc?

I am also trying to find out some additional information that I have been unable to find on the official Download site, such as what is the daily band line-up and what times are the bands playing? What time is Rammstein playing on the Friday night? I know gates open at 12 noon but what time is best to get there to get a good spot at the main stage for the headlining acts?

Any and all with any experience / info to post, please feel free.....

:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :r+fire: :r+fire: :r+fire: :r+fire: :r+fire: :r+fire: :r+fire: :r+fire: :r+fire: :r+fire: :r+fire:

I'm not doing download, but I AM doing Chicago Open air - is it OK to use your thread as a festival meet up thread?? I'm coming all the way from NZ to the States, so I'd really really love if I could meet some of my RR family while I'm there :heart: :heart:

Okay so here's the thing about posting pics of Download. After I have seen all the pro-shots and professional photos online, I looked again at mine and well, yeah, they are not that great :rolling:

I have tried to pick out some that are "acceptable" and not too blurry, I am sorry about the crappy quality

After edging in further, we got quite close by the last two thirds of the show

Look what we spotted right next to Donnington Park
Hmmmm, wonder who is here... 8) 8)

Atmosphere 8) 8)

The mud was...well...it was quite something :rolling:
Ankle deep in places

Had to buy British wellies from the local grocery store. You don't see this type of thing in Africa :rolling: :rolling: :rolling:

Wow - all I can say is "Wow"! Despite the mucky, soggy weather you guys (in part, I'm sure, thanks to the Wellingtons) look like you had the BEST of times! \m/

Nightwish were absolutely amazing! I enjoyed them just as much as R+ I have been a fan for a while and never really liked the singers after Tarja left but Floor is AMAZING! She really brings it home. She is Dutch, I think, her name and accent sound Dutch. She is cheerful on stage, smiles a lot, is interactive with the audience and most importantly is a very talented singer. And she knows how to headbang up a storm :lol: :lol: They have officially announced that she is now a permanent member of the band, so it's great that she is no longer just a temporary stand in. They need to get their :x: together now :lol:

It was so funny RE the rain, when Iron Maiden came on stage, Bruce Dickinson shouted: "Hello and welcome to "Downpour Festival" :rolling: :rolling:
He talks a lot to the audience and is full of jokes, at one point calling his band manager a c :x: t (the c bomb) because he was standing and texting instead of "paying attention" as Bruce put it. Of course he was being totally facetious, it was hilarious :rolling: :rolling:
