BEST LIVE SET YOU’VE SEEN AT DOWNLOAD?

Aerosmith 2010, my first Download and first time seeing a band of that caliber. It just really stuck with me and will forever be remembered as a special show.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MEMORY FROM DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL?

In 2015 I camped with some of the fan forum boardies. On one of the nights a bunch of glowsticks came flying at us, another camp basically challenged us to a duel – it was great fun!

IF YOU COULD SUM UP YOUR DOWNLOAD EXPERIENCE IN A LYRIC, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

“Sing with me, sing for the years, sing for the laughter, sing for the tears, sing with me, just for today. Maybe tomorrow, the good lord will take you away.  Dream on <3” – ‘Dream On’ by Aerosmith

 

IS THERE ANYONE YOU’VE MET AT DL WHO HAS BECOME AN IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR LIFE?

Yes, many of the boardies, amazing bunch of friends, and a few besties!  But I guess the most important is the man I met by proxy – thanks to a boardie friend who introduced me to his group of friends – who years later introduced me to the man I’m going to marry! Download connects people in the best way.

TOP TIP FOR ANYONE ATTENDING DOWNLOAD FOR THE FIRST TIME?

Baby wipes are your friend! Make friends with your camp neighbours and they might just become friends for life.
