So. Download Festival 2016. My 5th visit which was one of my best because of the lineup but THE WORST for the weather!(it even got dubbed “Drownload” and “Downpour Festival”).During the evening of the first day thunder hit the speakers on the main stage which screwed up the sound quality for the rest of the day, however it was fixed by Saturday morning.


My highlights were,like probably most were all three headliners.(Rammstein, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden). Also I found all the bands we really wanted to see were on the main stage on the Sunday one after the other which was great accept it meant we had to hold the awesome crowd spot we had for the rest of the day( 9 hours by the way whilst needing the toilet most of that time). Not easy but we did it. This meant we got a great view of “The Temperance Movement”, “Halestorm”, “Shinedown”, “Disturbed”, “Nightwish” and finally the mighty Maiden! All FANTASTIC bands!


If Download teaches you anything(other than how to have a rockin good weekend), its IMMENSE BLADDER CONTROL and I’d pick it over a week in the sun any day for a good summer.

Have a rocking good day/night people! \m/


Hi. I’m Dan and I have been a rocker and metal head since I was about 12 when I bought the then newly released Limp Bizkit Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavoured Water album after hearing it at my cousin’s house and attended my first ever gig on Saturday 12 November 2005 at St George’s Hall in Bradford which was Motorhead(RIPLemmy) who are still one of my all time favourite bands. It was the bands 30th anniversary tour and for the release of there September 2004 album “Inferno”. They had the band “In Flames” as support.

Over the last several years since around 2008 I have seen more bands than I could ever count and like a lot of you I take a lot of pictures and videos of my experiences at gigs and I thought that I had gathered (and still gather) plenty for a blog for all you hard rocking amigos  to see. Maybe it’ll get you to discover some of these AWESOME bands for yourself!(no thanks needed). 😉

Enjoy and ROCK ON!! \m/
