Review of Download Festival 2019
My first time at Download and despite the rain and the mud it was a brilliant experience watching two of my favourite bands, Whitesnake and Def Leppard. The atmosphere was really friendly; just people having a good time and loads of things to entertain: food, stalls, scary fairground attractions, people in fancy dress, or just men in dresses. It all ran to time near enough too. I only have a few minor criticisms; firstly the road directions were unclear to the South car park where everyone except campers would be headed and secondly £20 to park in a muddy field! A bit steep- the price not the field. Also, the footbridge over the road was a bottle neck for people returning to their cars. Lastly, for such a large gathering of people the security seemed to be quite minimal. I could have had anything in my pockets and walked through unchallenged. Minor issues but if the right bands were on I would definitely go back.
Would you recommended: Yes

it was good but very bad organisation! long queues, high prices, no bins, and everything had to be paid in cash. not the greatest one I've gone to unfortunately
The best music event I've been to so far
Review of Download Festival 2018
First visit as I wanted to see GnR who did not disappoint. There was a friendlier atmosphere that I am used to at festivals with the music taking center stage. Liked the layout and discovered a few new bands I will look up again- will be back!
it was my first download and i had one of the best times of my life, definitely going again next year .
excellent event, 100% recommend. downsides, need more shaded areas in main arena and more toilets in campsites
Amazing atmosphere, everyone was so friendly and the music was amazing. Prices where high but its expected at a festival
First festival at download will def be going back next year loved it
Great place to go, just make sure you definitely like the bands because it's not cheap!
