Truly fucking AWFUL weather in general. Even going INTO the festival on first day, the “roads” were a bloody mess. They should have had tracking down in a bunch of places, but they didn’t. The arena was late opening due to it being partly flooded. The little amount of straw they laid down was virtually pointless. Download took the piss. With all the money they must be making, why not invest in certain things to make the experience better when it’s these conditions?? I was & still am, disgusted with the whole experience (I’ve not been since). Even despite there being some great bands over the weekend, this one just left a nasty taste in the mouth.

Does that VIP Laminate look a bit dodgy to you? Well, it IS ! A mate from Netherlands was following the tour & always got guest laminates. When he was at the Wembley show, he posted his pass to me as he hoped i’d try sneakily film the show. Well, i took the gf with me & i’d made another copy of the pass…colour photo copy & laminating at local print shop! So easy. They worked a treat. But i didn’t film the show as lost the guts to do it…

The “Little Angels Curse”, strikes again ! ( I’ve been to 2 different gigs that were cancelled by L A. Also ordered a CD of LA from a company..they went into recievership) . This time,only saw support act No sweat,as my girlfriend passed out during their set. I must admit,the venue didnt have adequate ventilation. We went home as she had been “not very well” recently….
