Is Download Festival 2015 The Best Line Up Ever?

download festival line up 2015
In a word – YES.
Even though Download Festival is only about 45 minutes away from my house, I’m pretty ashamed to admit that I’ve not been since 2004. Getting side tracked with the line up of Leeds Festival for the past few years and with Sonisphere being possibly one of the most fun weekends I’ve ever had last year, it’s unfortunate that I couldn’t make it to Download as well. But this year my new life goal is to attend the 2015 festival. 
This year the line up just keeps getting better and better with each act that’s announced. Like it wasn’t good enough that Slipknot and KISS (omfg KISS?!) are going to be headlining, the news today that my party hero Andrew WK is there alongside L7 (L… SEVEN!!!) has got my 18 year old self EMOTIONAL. That’s right, emotional. L7 are up there with my idol Kathleen Hanna on the list of bands that taught me about being a fearless female. In fact, I’m pretty sure the only thing which would make this line up more perfect is if Kathleen herself turned up. And perhaps Stevie Nicks, but we’ve got more hope getting Kathleen I reckon.
Yeah, yeah I’ll probably look a bit out of place (if you remember the beginning of this post here, the metal LADS think I’m not metal enough for metal bands) but when I’ll also get to see Rise Against Dragonforce, Every Time I Die and Mike bloody Patton with Faith No More, I’m willing to get my New Rocks on. (I’m joking, of course). But seriously, rock and metal festivals are always the greatest atmosphere, with the friendliest bunch of people you could spend the weekend with. I really cannot wait.
Roll on June the 12th…..
Check out the full line up so far here. Will you be going??

    When the headliners were first announced I did think think it was a solid lineup, though for me my fave bands are spread across the full 3 days but not enough for me to want to go for the full weekend! (What a pansy) Already seen Slipknot this year on their tour, and got tickets to see Manson in Amsterdam cos the venues tiny (its smaller than an o2 academy so will be mental) so would like to see Faith No More but not enough to go just for them! I did go "just" for Linkin Park last year, on my tod! I've posted about gigs and stuff on my blog too. I saw your post about Bam being at Sonisphere. How did you find it? I've seen him twice (blogged about it) How was he at a festival?
    Soz for the essay, I love finding fellow moshers/METAL LADZ
