6x Indoor: 01,02,03,04,05,06
14x Outdoor: 05,06,07,08,09,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18

There's been 20 iterations of the festival already, so 2019 is the 21st iteration overall and the 18th anniversary.


This came up back in May - see my above post. :)

If an event first happens in 2001, then 2002 is its 1st anniversary. So, 2019 would actually be the 18th anniversary.


And you were wrong then as well. :rolleyes:

Besides you are still missing the Christmas Festival.

Admittedly from Wiki, but it has the clearest and most concisely written definition I've seen so far:

"An anniversary is the date on which an event took place or an institution was founded in a previous year, and may also refer to the commemoration or celebration of that event. For example, the first event is the initial occurrence or, if planned, the inaugural of the event. One year later would be the first anniversary of that event."

Therefore...

2001 -> Inaugural Date/Event
2002 -> 1st anniversary
2003 -> 2nd
2004 -> 3rd
2005 -> 4th
2006 -> 5th
2007 -> 6th
2008 -> 7th
2009 -> 8th
2010 -> 9th
2011 -> 10th
2012 -> 11th
2013 -> 12th
2014 -> 13th
2015 -> 14th
2016 -> 15th
2017 -> 16th
2018 -> 17th
2019 -> 18th anniversary.

Calling the xmas party a festival is a bit much, there were only 4 bands playing.

Technically, there were two Xmas Parties, although the second one was cancelled after Morgana Lefay pulled out at the last minute for medical reasons.

Just been catching up with tonights Facebook live. All three headliners for next year are locked in but none of them will be announced at this year's festival. They can start announcing them from September so I'm assuming there have been some contractual changes. However, there are also a few other main stage bands booked for next year that they will be announcing over the weekend and, according to Vicky, they're "heavy as hell." 8)

Watching the Download film last night, I can safely and happily say I don't mind if they keep booking these awful emoscreamocore bands - At least they're not booking rappers.
