Sleep, Domino's and Tinnitus

I got back from Download Festival today.  A week of camping, no showering, lack of sleep and drinking really takes it's toll and I was glad to get home, even if it was an awesome weekend.

This year instead of buying a ticket for the festival I decided to do volunteer work with Oxfam.  This means I had to do a few shifts doing various jobs but got to see bands for free.  It was well worth it.

My favourite acts of the weekend were Slipknot, Enter Shikari, Stone Sour and Bullet For My Valentine.  All four were excellent.  Other favourite acts include Architects, Five Finger Death Punch, Modestep and Rammstein as well as getting to see Asking Alexandria, Papa Roach, Korn, Dragonforce, Jimmy Eat World, Motorhead, Iron Maiden, Graveyard, Cancer Bats, Coal Chamber, Parkway Drive, Gaslight Anthem, Thirty Seconds To Mars and a few others.

I had such a good weekend.  Download is definitely my favourite festival and I can't wait to go again!

I didn't take many photos as I didn't want to lose my camera when dancing around in a crowd so left it hidden in my tent most of the time, but I did take a few.

I am now showered, am full up from my Domino's pizza, feel slightly deaf from a weekend of music and all I want is my bed.

Such a brilliant weekend!


  1. Yeah, I find I also don't take many photos at least not as many as I would like. I have yet to attend a camping festival in the UK, been to France for Hellfest for two years and it was awesome but am too broke this year to festival it up. Hopefully I'll be able to go to some sort of brit festival this year...maybe bloodstock but the lineup (last i saw) wasn't particularly great.

    1. Hope you get to go to at least one festival this year!
      I find that local festivals can be quite cheap but good fun too :) x

  2. I also don't take pictures in festivals , probably because I just want to enjoy the moment + I don't want some crazy people to ruin it without a single sorry around ;)
    It must be a fun event , woohss!
