Last weekend, I spent 4 days at Download festival. It's been 2 years since I last went and I was actually really nervous leading up to it. I hate camping, I don't drink a lot and in all honesty, I barely knew any of the bands. But I'm glad I took the plunge and went because it turned out to be of the best weekends I've had this year.
I've decided to do this in 2 parts as we took 3 cameras and I didn't want to picture spam just one post! So look for the second part of this next weekend! The headliners this year were Avenged Sevenfold, Linkin Park and Aerosmith. I pretty much went for the first two and also for Fall Out Boy (who were, I must say, amazing). Linkin Park was one of the best atmospheres I have ever experienced. They put on such an amazing show and even though I didn't know some of the songs, I still adored every minute. I came home early on the Sunday because there were zero bands I want to see, including Aerosmith (sorry guys) and I was fed up of being in a field. Plus, I was seriously sunburnt (as you will see in the pictures that follow!)
The weather was pretty amazing all weekend, except the Sunday. It was clear blue skies all day (too hot sometimes) and nice and cool in the evening so it was nice not to be be suffocated in my tent by the heat at night. Most of these are taken from one day (the Friday) but there will be more next week!
Here's a few snaps! None of them are edited because I'm shit at stuff like that and I'm also very lazy.
Clearly my boyfriend wanted to be slightly chavvy this day!
Skindred were amazing. And I hate their music.
Two of the best friends a girl could ask for (L)
Girl kisses are the best. Clearly my boyfriend thinks so.
I understand I look awful in each and every one. I'm drunk in most of them, I decided it was a good idea to get my little belly pouch out for some reason and this is the reason I got so burnt. Normally I'm someone who worries constantly how they look but I went to this festival telling myself I would let my hair down and live a little for once. That is exactly what I did and I loved every single minute of it and couldn't of cared less about how bad I looked.
I will post part two next Sunday :)
Have you been to any festivals this year?
