Just looking at my tour tracking apps and there’s so many UK based bands who are active/already rehearsed for festival season and free next weekend it’s proper odd they couldn’t find anyone to replace the pulls out. You count yourselves lucky they even bothered to replace The Distillers.

I don’t actually think that they did replace Distillers.

I reckon Frank Carter was always booked and was due to play third down main stage (as announced the previous year) but they put Skindred there once there was doubts about The Distillers.

Though I suppose you could say that indirectly Skindred  have replaced Distillers.

I had assumed Frankie C was booked for next year as he had that UK tour to promote when Download were announcing plus he just did Download last year.

Glad I didn't spring for a Saturday day ticket, what ridiculous stage times. 

I've just realised it's over £100 now just for a day ticket. Jeez! 

I'll continue to look on twickets. Someone was selling an adult for £91 a couple of days ago, would have been a bit of money off at least.

Hope those going have a great time. I'll be there from when we arrive on Wed evening in the campervan field. A bit less pished than in normal times (if I do as I'm told). Looks like it might be windy which is the suckiest of weather outcomes. Fingers crossed we escape the worst.

I’m not even going to pretend that I’m going to be less pished than normal haha.

Got Wales Netherlands footy match in Cardiff on Wednesday so will be in Downlod Friday morning.

Bleed From Within at the Dogtooth was fabulous this afternoon.  Probably the best newish band I’ve seen in years

Didn't realize you were here

Download 2022. I had a great time overall. Saw some great stuff. 

The Ghost Inside on Friday were absolutely monstrous. Skindred nailed it too. Just utterly unstoppable live. Had a huge crowd. 
 

Will Haven were incredible on Saturday. As were bleed from within. Deftones were brilliant. Sepultura were a blast too. 
 

Sunday, Alestorm…I don’t get it 😂I know it’s all fun and games, it’s just not for me. Baroness were really bloody good.
I’m sure people will rave about them, and I think Eternal Blue is a brilliant album, but I didn’t think much of Spiritbox live. That’s just one person’s opinion though. 
Fire From the Gods were a fun time, and I loved Biffy. Thought they smashed it, again. Bring on the November tour. 
 

Overall, I had a lot of fun. Next year’s download, four days…big time step up. I’d genuinely not be shocked by a double main stage too.

Great weekend. Didn’t really see anything I didn’t like. Loved Maiden as always but Korn last night were truly outstanding.  

I think I'm the only one that wasn't bothered by them. I admit they aren't generally my thing but I gave it a go given I've seen The Darkness but I just got bored. The weather was good but for a festival day it wasn't worth what it cost at all but that's my opinion. I think Biffy have got to the point for me now where their setlists just aren't worth me attending for them anymore.

Understand that point of view. I had a few things I was definitely going to and just went to see bits and pieces of a lot of bands. I’ve seen Biffy so often now that it didn’t excite me and only watched one song afrer Myles K in the Dogtooth. That stage os seriously shit and needs moved.
