Amazing weekend, me and my friend had upgraded to the 'Ready To Rock' package which paid off so well as we didn't have to worry about putting a tent up when we got there and take it down when we left, the camp wasn't too noisy at night apart from the planes going overhead very low, we also had toilets and showers on site which were well cleaned and maintained. The acts were all brilliant, we went mainly for System of a Down, Five Finger Death Punch, In Flames, Prophets of Rage, Issues, Brutai and many others and not one failed to impress, we even caught a few that we didn't expect to make time for such as Coheed and Cambria and AFI who again were brilliant. One of the best parts of the weekend by far was the WWE NXT stage where we didn't miss a single showing.

Not one band let me down from the headliners to the little gems I've never seen before everyone gave it their max.

Awesome event, brilliant music. Even the rain and mud didnt dampen the atmosphere. Just a shame there was nowhere to sit down during the day, only and handful of benches outside one of the drink vendors stand. Definately need to bring your own fold up arm chairs!

Music was immense as always, weather was wet as always! Haha.
Still a good festival, but sadly the company now running it have cut corners everywhere this year including hiring in different security firms containing large numbers of bored, unenthusiastic, unfriendly/rude personnel.
On the whole, the Download family remained strong though and it was still an awesome weekend!
