Download Festival – Artists Saturday

A week ago we were dodging the rain at Download Festival and watching some great bands at the same time.

Here are a few photos of the bands that captured my imagination a week ago today.

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.

        I know, I had to run out of there to see Sabbath just before the finished, the crowd was so big for the stage. I don’t understand why they were on the 2nd stage.

        I am glad they were as the atmosphere and sound is so much better at the 2nd stage. I don’t really watch much on the main stage. I gave up on Sabbath after Ozzy murdered war pigs

        Sabbath were the first band I ever listened too and I’ve never seen them before so I had to watch them. They were ok, rammstein blew everyone away for me.
