I suspect many people will be glad to be leaving Donington Park tonight and tomorrow.

In all the madness the world is currently going through you can at least take solace in the fact this forum never changes.

Statement is made, Gandalf disagrees/lambasts. And thus the world keeps turning

As much as they above is a regular occurrence, it has to be said that this one was pretty special - comparing going to a metal festival to being shot at by Nazis.

He'll do well to beat that one.

To be fair Hellfest 2007 was a bit like the trenches so he's not far off.

Also "You're complaining about having to go to war? Fucking man up, your forebearers all died of the plague and you're complaining about being able to run?"

Probably the last time I do Download. The weather was poor but that wasn't the reason it was crap this year. I'm not sure if they've increased capacity but it was ridiculously busy this year. Seemed to take twice as long to get anywhere as you were constantly people dodging. Bar queues were a joke, took 40-45 mins to get a beer on the Friday as they decided to not bother opening 2 of the bars until about 4pm. Heard stories of people queuing 2 hours+ for merch too. Couldn't get in the tents for any bands either as they heaving. Wanted to watch Jinjer so got there a good half an hour before they started and just couldn't get in so gave up. The lineup was great and every band I saw put in a good performance, but the festival experience as a whole just isn't worth the money

I am calling Metallica, Rammstein and Alter Bridge as the 2020 headliners.

If DL were smart they'd book them as Saturday headliners, can see a lot of people leaving early if they're the Sunday headliners.
