So this weekend I made a very last minute decision to attend Download Festival with my boyfriend and his friends. Best decision ever. I haven't been to a proper festival for years, in fact the last time I went to one it was Download in 2006/7 whichever year that Guns 'n' Roses headlined. I was about 17 and a much more low maintenance person back then, I was drunk the entire weekend and had a penchant for rolling around in the mud amongst burly metalheads. This time around I'm a totally different person, I was sober (only because I had work the next day...), wearing a skirt, and had a camping chair. This combination led to a completely new experience for me, I spent time appreciating my surroundings (looking for hot boys... Getting outfit inspiration from those effortlessly cool festival goer types) and really enjoying relaxing in the sunshine without a care in the world.
I went on the Sunday and none of the music was really my taste except for Rammstein of course, who doesn't like a bit of German Industrial Metal? I spent many a drunken moment twirling/ headbanging/ foxtrotting to Du Hast in my youth (still do...). I was happy to sit and listen to the other bands though and we just stayed near the Main Stage all day, wasn't impressed by 30 Seconds to Mars though - Leto seemed like a bit of a dick. Too preachy for me, and what's with the hair?! Rammstein were awesome, so many fireworks and explosions - a great way to end the perfect day.
