So true and sadly, very rare at big festivals

Joms you're famous!

Well, that's nice to see it quoted 😀

Emma Bryant unless you fucking talk to the guy who arranges it all 😂😂😂😂

put the speakers back to how they used to be , there are very bad flat spots along the front barrier stage left/ stage right, it seems very underpowered, and no bottom end. no where near as loud as it once was , the whole of the underneath of the stage used to be subs/low end doubt there is anything there now.....

...Unless they're the vocal minority on Facebook

Cause everyones fucking high 😂😂😂

But sometimes you don't need to speak at all. I came from America for my first Download this year. The first day I wore my Soundgarden tour shirt. As Many other people as well, Often without saying anything, someone would approach an other and just give a big hug and a broken smile. No words were shared, still more was said in that gesture than the whole weekend.

Billie Duff
