Download and Isle of White this weekend

9 Jun

So this Weekend sees the start of the big festival season in the UK with Download and Isle of White both taking place over Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Download has what is in my opinion it’s best lineup yet with Faith No More, Def Lepard, Prodigy, Pendulam, Fightstar, Journey, ZZ Top, The Answer and Chris Cornell being the ones I would look forward to, if I were going ha ha. Luckily I don’t need to as the whole festival will be broadcast live from downloadfestival.co.uk starting on Friday with the official return of the legendary Faith No More. Obviously there is more than your usual amount of rubbish at Download and this year is no different, so if you are going avoid the Nu metal return bands – limp Bizkit, Papa Roach, Korn and Slipknot – like the plague!

Isle of White also boasts a good lineup, with Neil Young, Pixies, The Zombies, White Lies, The Prodigy, Pendulam and Pigoen Detectives standing out for me. The guy from the charlatans is also curating a stage which has some pretty impressive new acts including The Horrors and ones to watch S.C.U.M

Have a great time if you’re going to any of those!
