was awesome (:
I was expecting to be scared of all the metal heads & wanting to go home the whole time, but everyone there was lovely & the whole atmosphere was nice & friendly.
We saw basically all the bands on the two main stages (everyone except bjorn again, feeder, & some band that filled in for coheed & cambria) so I'm totally shattered now even though I've been back for nearly two whole days.
The two headliners, Linkin Park & Metallica were amazing obviously. I also loved Lamb of God (yeah, seriously) & Machine head because they both got the crowds to go really crazy, & we were right up the front the whole time (:
Airborne were one of my favourites too because the lead singer wanted to give everyone a really good show because it was raining, so he climbed up one of the lighting tower things to the side of the stage & all security were trying to get him to come down (: he was cool.
The camping was cool too. We were in the smallest campsite, because we came a day early so we got a nice spot & stuff. But then the next day when more people came, we came back from the arena to find that our little camp had literally been invaded by northern pirates, so we moved in with our lovely neighbours who had plenty of room for our tent (:
On the last night all the noisiest and weirdest people from out field came to hang out in our camp & were still there when he left in the morning.
We met an Australian boy who almost got the shit kicked out of him for insulting Nine Inch Nails, a guy called Rav who had been screamed everything he wanted to say all night, & some lovely Vikings from surrey.
I'm already looking forward to going next year (:
