Download Festival Announces Another List Of Acts For 2016

Well, I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am.  Daniel P Carter has just revealed another list of artists for the 2016 pilgrimage to Donington park.

The headline acts were announced a few weeks back and with Black Sabbath, Rammstein and Iron Maiden whats not to like.  Then came the announcements that Korn, Deftness, Motorhead and Megadeath were on the main stage undercard.  At that point I began to get really excited.

This evening Daniel P Carter used his Sunday Rock show on Radio 1 to announce another list of artists.  These include several of my current favourite bands.  Most exciting to me is the incredible Beartooth and the utter hardcore madness that is Frank carter and the Rattlesnakes.  The amazing Architects are also added along with the enigmatic death metal outfit Ghost.

I couldn’t be more excited if I were selecting bands to play at the festival from a virtual wishlist most of the bands announced would be on it.  There are also a few bands to date that I don’t know so I will really looking forward to learning about some new bands.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
