Download Fest

DO NOT BRING

Offensive weapons or anything that may be considered offensive, even if you're planning to use it for camping ( it won't be allowed in )

This includes: ANY glass containers, Prams or pushchairs ( the festival site is not suitable for them or their occupants!) ANY pets, Laser pens ( they are dangerous and may result in eviction without refund )

Gas cylinders and petrol fuelled cookers will not be permitted in the main campsite. Anyone found in possession of a gas cylinder or petrol may be asked to leave.

The suggested cooking stoves allowed are any solid fuel type such as Disposable BBQ's, Hexi Stove with solid fuel block

Standard compact cameras will be permitted, though you will not be able to take in a professional camera e.g. One with interchangeable lenses.

Faith No More's first confirmed 2009 appearance has been announced. As you can see above, they one of three headliners at this year's Download Festival in Donington Park ("where the three counties of Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Derbyshire meet. - The ley-lines of ROCK!!"). Take a look at that lineup... I guess the haters win round one on this reunion (thx Zach).

P.S. "Faith No More's appearance at Download 2009 will be their ONLY UK date this year."

Hmmmm, wonder if there will be any fights/ arrests at this heaping mess of a festival.

Defensive weapons? So I can bring a shield, my sweet suit of armor and a case of mace?

The offensive weapons are the sounds coming out of the speakers at this thing.
Why are you even reporting on this Fest -- every single act on that poster is pure laughably bad rubbish.

Looks like the cover of Metal Edge magazine, circa 1993.

Contest for the ugliest fans in music?

ZZTOP is too talented to be in this line up.

"Contest for the ugliest fans in music?"

LOL!

I remember once walking down Broadway in NYC and KORny was having a in-store, so the line was all Korn fans waiting to have Fieldy say something retarded like: "Yeahhh. Braaahhh". Was with my 57 yr old mother and she said: "God, those have to be the ugliest bunch of people I've ever seen in my life, bet their IQ's total 50"

Mom's know shit.

ZZTop stands out as the only band who is consciously playing a parody of themselves. The others are not in on the joke.

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2009 1:10 PM

I think you're giving ZZ Top too much credit...

Worst line up ever beside Faith No More and ZZ Top!

The Prodigy? Saaaaaaad.

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2009 1:44 PM

I don't buy into this being the only Faith No More UK date. I hope I'm right anyway, I really don't want to have to go to this god-awful fest.

Posted by Aaron | March 3, 2009 1:47 PM

As nightmarish as that lineup is, whoever did the billing order has some hilarious 'splaining to do.

PLEASE someone provide the riders for this show.

this show would not be happening but for the recession - metal trash bands have bills!! lol!

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2009 2:40 PM

this lineup makes no sense! i am offended by it's bad selection of artist!

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2009 3:06 PM

Hey kids, it's fun to be aggro for the sake of being aggro. Breaking shit, starting fights, raping sluts is done best with someone screaming and playing loudly in the background. FUCK YEAH!

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2009 3:23 PM

VH1 should film this show for potential future shows.

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2009 3:37 PM

Say what you will....But these bands KILL it over the Guantanamo loudspeaker!!

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2009 3:54 PM

how does this line up make no sense? In the Uk these bands are the stuff that gets played every friday night where cheap cider is sold....and has been as long as I can remember.

Doesn't mean it's good, doesnt mean I like it. Just means it's no surprise.

It does seem if you don't have a shitty graphic logo your not coming in.

"how does this line up make no sense? In the Uk these bands are the stuff that gets played every friday night where cheap cider is sold....and has been as long as I can remember."

I'd run to the hills if I ever walked into a bar and they were playing any of that sheeeyate.

what the FUCK? faith no more and zz top are way to good for all those other shitty bands.

fred durst-what a fucking douche!!!

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2009 5:39 PM

Nachtmystium were dropped from the lineup

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2009 5:44 PM

what is FNM thinking to play a festival with all these terrible bands?

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2009 6:28 PM

How is Limp Bizkit under Faith No More? they should headlining. Is Wes Albino Eyes playing with them?!?!

Posted by Anonymous | March 3, 2009 7:18 PM

2:21 proves my point. You could not pay me to be anywhere near this travesty.

Since I wear plaid and stuff, I feel "hip" in a funky way. I like gay buttholes and PBR's

WHERE IS ALICE IN CHAINS???

Posted by Anonymous | March 4, 2009 11:37 AM

'How is Limp Bizkit under Faith No More?' - I usually try to respect peoples opinions but that's just plain ridiculous. Limp Bizkit wouldn't even exist if it wasn't for FNM.

Dear Faith No More, play some other UK dates, this festival is horrendous.

Posted by Aaron | March 4, 2009 2:05 PM

"Since I wear plaid and stuff, I feel "hip" in a funky way. I like gay buttholes and PBR's"

You told 'em Brah! LOL!

Posted by Anonymous | March 4, 2009 2:11 PM

Well, I for one will be going solely to see Faith No More headline the Friday, one of the greastest bands of all time. There's far too many ignorant fuckholes on this forum putting them down, proving that either 1) They've never heard more than one or two of their songs or 2) They know dick about music.

Posted by Dunk | March 6, 2009 9:41 AM

FNM are waaay too good for DL... and 'fraid it IS their only UK date... hell, they're not even touring AMERICA! (This year, anyway...) Only been to DL once and it was the year Tool played... and the only reason I wanna go this year is for FNM! And yes, everyone at DL does tend to be ugly...

Posted by Meemz | March 6, 2009 10:53 AM

You guys are either blessed with some great gigs around or you're a bunch of morons... I can't imagine spending time typing all that shit if I wasn't vaguely interested. I'm probably going and feel quite happy about all those old-heavy-metal crappy bands playing as they'll provide me with some time for rest/food/drink :)

Posted by bart | March 7, 2009 5:14 PM

Yeah seriously, what the f are FNM doing here, this is just beyond me. FNM please come to london ALONE!!!!

Posted by sandra dee | March 13, 2009 12:05 PM

i love it how all the gaylords that are bashing download are anon.
