Battered, muddy, tired and weary, but the Download faithful are still up and about for the final day early. And guess what? Despite not being forecast until the evening, the rain starts before the bands. Joy of joys. That said, there’s a little group on the Dogtooth stage called The …

After yesterday, the sight of no rain and straw on the arena floor is much welcomed, and it’s definitely a more optimistic punter that takes their place in front of the Lemmy Stage. It certainly buoys Avatar (8) as well, who are going from strength to strength with every performance …
