The reason you’re not going to High Voltage Festival is that you’re an idiot

March 31st, 2010

With all out “Download Festival this, Sonisphere Festival that, Oh look Reading & Leeds” blathering recently, we’ve really missed out on emphasising one fact about the upcoming UK festival season: that High Voltage Festival, frankly, looks like it’s going to piss all over everyone else. The fact that it was confirmed today that Opeth will be playing their only UK festival show of 2010 there merely cements that fact.

There was no such thing as grunge. You can’t walk down the high street these days for kids in white jeans. Having pointy hair and tattoos of Les Paul guitars and go-go girls dancing through fire is still cool and always has been. Or so Hell City Glamours would have you believe.

download festival 2009 thrash hits donington

It’s almost time for Download Festival 2009. It’s only two weeks away, in fact and we’re getting rather excited. Soon it’ll be time to start looking at that schedule and figuring out what bands you want to see and which ones annoyingly clash.

We already know that Faith No More, Motley Crue and Meshuggah clash, but with FNM making what will surely be a triumphant return, there’s only going to be one winner of that contest.

Whitesnake self-confirm Download festival appearance

February 11th, 2009


Since the somewhat meagre official line-up announcement on Monday, we’ve been waiting for the trickle of self-confirmations for this year’s Download festival to start coming in – the latest is that of hard-rockers Whitesnake.

The band has announced over on their official website that they’re going to be playing the Donington metal festival on June 14 – that’s the Sunday, in case you were wondering. We’re hoping this will add weight to the likelihood of a classic rock closure to the festival – ZZ Top and Def Leppard, anyone?
