Redhook kick us off on the final day at Download and as it happens, it's their second show of the weekend, following the Aussies' Saturday lunchtime acoustic set for Carlsberg. Today, they ramp things right up on a nearly astronomical scale to a tent that's absolutely packed for 11 in the morning.
Despite the weather-related camping challenges at this year’s Download, a decent sized crowd have woken up early and amassed at the Avalanche Stage to watch Parting Gift open the stage on day two.
There are more encouraging build ups to a major UK summertime festival than an entire week of continuous, heavy rain, but for the regulars of Download Festival, it’s nothing out of the ordinary. Lovingly nicknamed Drownload, it’s often plagued by inclement weather, but while clothes, bodies and campsites may be sodden before a single band has even played a note, it takes more than adverse conditions to dampen the spirits of UK metal fans.
