UPDATE:

Hi everyone.

It is only four weeks till Download so thought I'd give an update to what is going on.

Katy is unfortunately unable to co host with me :(.  However, I am now co-hosting this event with Kath where it will now be a joint Derby Sociable/Notts Gig Buddies Event.

http://www.meetup.com/NottinghamGigBuddies/events/106752062/

I think it would be cool to go in a bigger group and meet new people :D

If you have no done so already, please can you let me know if you have brought your ticket so I know that you are definitely coming?  This is so Kath and I know who to expect. If I do not hear from you by Friday 7th June, I will assume you are not coming.

I am also considering upgrading my 3 day camping ticket so I can go on the Thursday evening instead of Friday morning where it it guaranteed to be heaving.  I have contacted the festival to see if this possible.

Anywhere, I look forward to hearing from you all soon.  I'm now the proud owner of a tent and am super excited to hear some HEAVY F*****G METAL!

WOO! XD

***************************************************************

Katy and I really want to go to Download this year as the line up is awesome. We will book tickets and sort out car share etc nearer the time as we cannot afford tickets at the moment but we do want to see who would be interested in joing us. Once we get an idea of the numbers, we will form some sort of plan.

Weekend ticket plus 3 nights camping is £195. More info can be found here http://www.downloadfestival.co.uk/line-up

I personally really want to see Five Finger Death Punch as they are my favourite band at the moment - I am so excited at the prospect of seeing them live XD. Line up involves Enter Shikari, HIM, Bullet for my Valentine, Rammstein, Slipknot, Iron Maiden, Limp Bizket and many more.

We plan to get our tickets as soon as we can afford too and will update when we have got them. Please update on here when you have purchased your tickets.

Eloise and Katy x

    Thanks for the offer andre but i can't make it now, try looking on Facebook for a local selling page if noone claims it. You might get someone willing to pay and collect it from you :-)

    Hi All,

    Is anyone going travelling to from Derby to Download tomorrow morning.

    It would be good to hook up with someone beforehand.

    I still have an unused ticket. If anyone could use a free ticket, could you please drop me an email via Meetup.

    Sorry I have not got in touch about Download. (Extremely busy with new job). I had been planning to go to Download with a university mate, but got a call from him, saying he cannot make it. It is exactly five to go, and it is very unlikely that I will any of my non-meetup friends will appreciate a free weekend ticket. Katy: do you still want to go? Or if anyone else knows someone who would be able to use it at this short notice, could you drop me an email via Meetup. I would much rather it was used than not used at all.

      Ok hun that's fine. Do you have Facebook or an email address? Me and Vincent were discussing bands we wanted to see last night where I made a colour coded timetable of the bands I want to see. I could send it to you and see you can recommend anyone else worth seeing x
