Its coming to that time of year again…where the brave embrace the elements and become one with dirt and nature. That’s right its festival season!! With so much variety nowadays you really are spoiled for choice. But for ladies, like myself, with a heavier taste in music, there is only one choice that stands out from the rest….Download Festival.
This is the daddy of all festivals, what was once the Monsters of Rock festival in the 80’s, Download is still the premier festival to see some of the hardest hitting metal bands in the world today.
This year is no exception with an immense line-up which includes headliners System of a Down, Biffy Clyro and Aerosmith as well as bands to wet the appetite of every kind of metal head from Slayer for the classic thrasher to A Day to Remember for all your breakdown needs.
If this isn’t enough to get you clambering for a ticket, the legendary WWE are bringing NXT – for the second year running – featuring NXT superstars Bobby Roode, Shinsuke Nakamura and Asuka. Also, you never know, there could be a surprise appearance from WWE Superstar Chris Jerico as his band Fozzy are taking the stage over the weekend.
But enough speculation, beyond the heavy riffs you’ll find the inflatable wedding chapel, the freaky and eye watering Circus of Horrors and musical comedy to add some laughs to your rock weekend. We are so excited we could scream…but not in a high-pitched sort of way, more a death metal battle-cry sort of way……aaaaarrrrrgggghhhhh….
