    I also went to download (the third year appearence.). May i correct you vlad without being prude. MCR ****ing ruled and nightwish played 4 songs, but other than that it was ace eh!. Ive got mutiple bruising fron staying at the front all sat but weyhey. Rock on
    I stand throughly corrected about Nightwish... however; MCR sucked. I'm a pretty big fan of MCR but I've not heard a worse live performance from a band since Franz Ferdinand. I dunno if you heard the recording of them playing Helena on Download 87.7, but it was utterly dire. Gerard was totally unable to reach the vocal requirements of most of the songs... yeah... artists like to put a twist on their songs when they play live but he was just appalling... dropping down octaves far too often because he couldnt reach the notes, letting the crowd sing most of the song... it was just a really pathetic performance. Then to finally top it off, he comes out with that "lets contact the dead" horses**t... I just stood there and said what the f**k.

    SOAD were on later than billed because their guitarist was too f**ked out of his head on drugs to play
    Was Daron stoned? wouldnt surprise me he looked off his head shame he couldnt stay sober as such for one of the biggest performances of his career, and would explain why Serj looked so worried throughout the performance, and why they simply left without saying goodbye,

    but still i have a bitter taste especially whem comparing them to slipknot, they called us their family , while SOAD said 2 things throughout

    That was my first festival and it kicked F*****g ass

    Didn't see too many bands Friday, but Sat/Sun i was basically in front of the main stage all day

    I was pretty impressed with everything i saw and i thought the crowds were ace

    We were camped right on a 'road' between the main camping shops area and toilets, so had a constant trail of drunk/stoned/hilarious dudes :p:

    definitely going next year...
