Engagement Tea Party – Saturday 19th September 2015 Last Saturday we held our engagement party at our house, we spent the day with around ...


Music: Download Festival

Download 2013 Wristband

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.

Was anyone else at Download? What were your best bits?

  4. I'm so jealous! I had plans to go to download 2 years ago, but I had a baby instead. Haha :P Would LOVE to see rammstien though! You lucky, lucky girl! Xo

  5. I'm going to my first ever festival in August - can't wait. It is an 80s festival so I'm not too excited by the music, I'm just looking forward to experiencing a festival. x
