I went to Sonsiphere when it was 60,000 people - it reminded me of some post-apocalyptic refugee camp. You have to be off your face all the time to 'enjoy' those big festivals with all kinds of music. BOA is just right- and with careful planning I manage to get to see bands I like all day every day....
Fairly sure you get 5 days of camping at Download.
I enjoyed the Sonisphere experience when I went, didn't think the campsites were bad at all.
As for an Apocalyptic refugee camp, nothing will erase the memory of a woman at BOA pulling down her pants, lifting her leg up over the mens urinal, only to piss all over herself.
