FAVOURITE IMAGE FROM DOWNLOAD:

This was the first photo taken of me and my boyfriend on the Wednesday of the DL2012, and I think the only decent photo taken that year. The rest is a complete blur, but so many amazing memories have been made since that day!

BEST LIVE SET YOU’VE SEEN AT DOWNLOAD?

Rammstein 2013 – The first time ever seen them. OMG….just, OMG!

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MEMORY FROM DOWNLOAD?

It was my second Download and my boyfriend’s first; we were running around the village on the Friday night so hyped up from the arena, and we bumped into our best friends near the dog house and we just danced, head banged and drank until the sun came up. It was just unreal, we felt so fucking free!

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

All of ‘Death To All But Metal’ – by Steel Panther

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

It was my second year again and my best friend had just started seeing her boyfriend – and they were camping with his friends instead of us. And when we actually ran into them both that Friday night, it was one of the best nights I’ve ever had. We’ve been closer than ever since then!

TOP TIP FOR ANYONE ATTENDING DOWNLOAD FOR THE FIRST TIME?

Pack plenty socks, bring plenty vodka and prepare for this festival to change your fucking life!
