  1. It's been a long time since I was at Download, but, from my festival experience I can honestly say - get there as early as you can, - pack in a way that you can carry it over a long distance as it isn't a short walk - choose your spot wisely (you might think you'd want to be close to toilets, but think of the smell and people queuing around you, or close to the path (but what about being so open). - tent size isn't limited, however, if it is only you or you and a friend in a tent, maybe don't buy a huge one and take up too much space (other people need to camp too remember πŸ˜‚) - if there is a group of you going, lots of people camp in a circle, face their tents inwards, and bring a gazebo so if it rains you can still hang out together but undercover. - don't be afraid to make friends with your tent neighbours ☺️
  2. I don't understand why merch always order so many smalls and mediums, because TONNES of slim people will buy oversized Tees and hoodies, but no one who's an L/XL/XXL will buy a small or medium 😭 gutted I couldn't get anything πŸ˜’
  3. I was thinking about the lineup next year, and seeing as it's only a week before download, I reckon a fair few will play both.
  4. Seeing as everyone said secret guests were gunna be neck deep, I bailed and watched someone else, found out it was mcfly and am so freakin gutted. That's my teens right there, but, I saw some awesome bands and had an amazing day 😁 Would definitely go solo again!
  5. I'm heading there solo so if you see me wandering around like a lost puppy, say hi πŸ˜‚ You can get me on IG @binge.to.bopo ☺️
  6. They have shown on IG that your proof of vaccination must be via the digital passport options (the app or a downloaded pdf or printed pdf) - basically the official passport has a QR code that they'll scan with your ticket on the gate. A negative test result needs to be either via text or the NHS app. Hope that helps
  7. I think slam dunk are smart not announcing who the secret act is, because if they need to pull out for whatever reason, no one can be disappointed because no one knows who it was supposed to be... Also, if they do pull out, and they if they can't fill the slot, they could essentially ask one of the other bands to do a short acoustic set πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
  8. Website states "You can't bring food and drink into the festival but we have a wide range of food stalls, bars and fresh water available across the site."
  9. Do many people get there for 9am when the gates open? I don't fancy wandering round solo for two and a half hours till the first band starts πŸ™ˆ
  10. So is the opposite of a rain dance a sun mosh? Also, totally agree. Beyond excited for Slam Dunk...I haven't been since 2011 πŸ€£πŸ™ˆ stupid friends never wanted to come so this year I'm heading solo 🀘🏼
  11. Evening All, Newbie here, heading to Slam Dunk North solo πŸ˜„ if you see a short ass red head wandering around, say hi!
  12. Evening All, Newbie here, heading to Slam Dunk North solo πŸ˜„ if you see a short ass red head wandering around, say hi! I saw the secret headliner announced was Boston Manor, unfortunately not good enough to drag me away from seeing Don Broco!
