Another great year at Download despite the fact that it rained…and rained… The weather did not inspire me to wander far from the main and second stages, but still, there was so much to enjoy and the Donington Park crowd absolutely loved it. Just a small selection of pictures here, kicking things off with the amazing Smashing Pumpkins set. Sadly I didn’t realise that we needed an additional sign-up to shoot Slash. But beyond that, there was plenty of drama, theatrics, pyrotechnics, and perhaps less normal at Download, a big smile on stage courtesy of Eagles of Death Metal lead Jesse Hughes. You can find more pictures and the full shoot story in the next edition of N Photo magazine.
