The recent ten thousand capacity Download Pilot event witnessed the welcomed live return of a full camping festival as part of the UK Government's pilot scheme to help open up live music. We were lucky enough to attend the memorable live event, find out what we thought about the artists we saw over the weekend!
This weekend a 10,000 capacity Download Pilot is set to take place featuring headliners Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Enter Shikari, Bullet For My Valentine plus many more acts across the three-day test festival. The event is set to be utilised as a gateway to getting live music back on the road as part of the second phase of the Government's scientific event research programme. Check out our top picks from the line-up of this very special music event.
There’s something distinctly cool about not putting bands who are essentially carbon copies of one another on tour together. It wasn’t until recently that pop-punk bands brought pop-punk bands and metal bands supported metal bands, and it turned into a weird clique where one couldn’t sit with the other. The point is, when you look at Static Dress, Chamber, Can’t Swim and Counterparts on paper, you question why they’d be on tour together, but when you see them live, hardcore elements overlapping despite their sound being very different from each other, it feels like kismet.
