We love Jägermeister. We hate what it does to us when we drink it irresponsibly, but we love it. Skindred, Therapy?, Black Spiders and Skindred love it enough to have been part of the Jägermeister Music Tour. It was only £5 to get in and Brixton Academy was SOLD OUT.

Somewhat unsurprisingly, the first Download Festival announcement following the cancellation of their chief 2012 rival has at least one major coup picked from Sonisphere’s carcass – Refused are now going to be making their only UK festival appearance of 2012 at Download Festival.

Is there anything better than a Thrash Hits Festival Splash Page? Yeah, loads of things but you won’t find the best online festival coverage on any of them. You’ll find that right here.

All our work from Sonisphere Festival 2011 is going be linked to from this page (eventually), so give it a bookmark or just don’t close it, because it’s all you’re going to need.

It’s all here.
