    Crowds can get pretty intense watch you don't damage them.

    Also get a locker or make sure you won't smash them if you put them at the bottom of your sleeping bag.
    My friend is renting a locker and said she will let me put my expensive stuff in there to be safe (:

    Camping is now sold out, aside from a limited number of 5-day camping tickets being released today which apparently are likely to sell within 24 hours.

    First time festival-goer
    First-time Downloader
    I'm going prepared with everything from festival survival kits, £65 worth of alcohol, £10 worth of food. Fancy dress for the saturday, camcorder, camera and all the other essentials - 5 days worth of drinking and music! xD
    That's a hell of a lot of stuff to carry in with you, I'm doing 2 trips:
    Trip 1: Backpack with clothes/toiletries in, tent, camping chair
    Trip 2: Backpack with food in, alcohol

    This'll be my 3rd Download but 12th festival overall and it's shaping up to be the best!

    Sonisphere was my first festival and it was amazing! I have a feeling download can top it also, will be hard to top slipknot and tallica in the same weekend though!

    without taking the line up into consideration 'cause that's too subjective to comment on, Download is waaay better than Sonisphere! better atmosphere, better sound, better arena lay out, better "village" in the campsite

    I've been thinking of going to Download this year but I had lots of things to do and exams to pass .
    Anyway, how was it, guys? I've seen a picture of the camping ground. It was completely under water, omfg! I've been to many disaster festivals but I've never seen something like this!

    Did you see that on the V Festival facebook page? If it's this picture -





    or ones like those, they are actually Glastonbury a few years ago, some other festival facebook sites have been trying to pass them off as Download - whether it's to stop people going or what, I don't know. I actually pointed it out on the V Festival facebook page and not only did they delete my comment, they've blocked me from the page - pathetic, really. That's one festival I won't be going to.

    It was pretty good . Arrived on the Friday and the ground was pretty bad but it dried up over the weekend and the sun came out! I was quite lucky to be meeting friends who were already camping because the camp sites were rammed!

    One word to describe it - amazing. Yes the rain was ****ty, but after the Friday everything seemed a lot better and a lot of the mud had dried out. I do feel for those who were there the previous two days though, luckily I also had friends there which meant we got into the Red camp site which was pretty close. Looking at how far some of the camp-sites were though is just ridiculous (i.e. yellow camp) something needs to be done somehow as you shouldn't have to walk that far just to get to the arena.

    The walk to the arena is mental, my feet hurt just thinking about it. Especially battling my way through mud for 4 days and the lack of straw they put down. -.- I slept in a wet sleeping bag and everything but when Friday came it was worth it, so much better than last year though I do think Metallica put on a better show than Sabbath even though Sabbath were amazing. I'm sure it's always been that far from the arena but at least it works off all the junk food you'll be eating over the weekend! My mum already got us 3 RIP tickets for next year so I'm super excited already, I just hope the headliners are like.. KISS, Rammstein and Iron Maiden. :P

    Damn RIP tickets alrite for some :P

    Yeah I've only been to sonisphere before which you hardly had to move out of your tent to be in the arena, so download was a big shock.

    My money is on Rammstein being at download, and Maiden being at sonisphere next year, so ima need some more money xD

    I hope that's not the case :P I'm actually trying to go to both as well if I can get a job, I haven't been to Sonisphere but most people in our group had and they kept complaining and said the same thing as you - the camping was next to the arena and download was ridiculous xD I reckon you might be right though! All the more reason to get saving haha :P

    Yeah, these are the pictures I've seen on Facebook. Actually, it was a friend who reposted a picture of a guy who was there. So I thought it was real. Looks horrible, whereever it was.
    Anyway, you guys seem to be happy . Any festival comes in a package with rain and mud. Unless it's an indoor one, like Inferno Festival in Oslo or Eindhoven Metal Meeting in Holland.
