Another month has passed and so have so many more festivals. We had a great time at this years Download Festival; sun and so many bands! Head of Reviews Lizi gives us her run down of some of the highlights in Alt Corner’s Festival Awards for Download.
Best band performance – Motionless in White totally owned the main stage and had the crowd eating out of the palm of their hands.
Best crowd reaction – Aerosmith was just one big sing a long.
The band that surprised you the most – Aaron Buchanan and the Cult Classics. Stumbled upon them by chance and was very impressed with the showmanship and music.
Standout performance – Junior. Incredible pop punk set with added bonuses. Where else would you get a giant limbo competition mid set which also features professional wrestlers (and a teaser for the NXT UK championship match later that night?)
Most underrated band at the festival. – Like A Storm. Forever a consistently great live band with a unique sound.
The band people should get excited about. – Like A Storm – for the above reasons and just the fact that they are something different and bring a fresh take on metal
Most memorable moment – tie between Aaron Buchanan chucking free beer into the crowd and the wrestling input during Junior’s set.
Special recognition; this can be anything about the festival that you thing deserves recognition. A band/a moment/anything. – THE SUN! YOU CAN GET SUN AND DRY PERIODS AT DOWNLOAD!!
