DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL SYDNEY
After much outcry and eagerness from the fans, Download Festival Australia finally made its way to Sydney, and my Gods what an amazing day it was!
The day started out in line waiting for entrance to the festival and the air was abuzz with excitement and eagerness of fans wanting to see their favourite bands play live, some for the last time ever. In a last minute twist (due to health reasons) Ozzie Osbourne had to pull out (giggity) of the lineup and was replaced with Aussie metal band Airbourne and the headline act was given to Slayer.
While it is sad that Ozzie had to remove himself from the festival, fans were still treated to 36 local and international acts including Judas Priest, Anthrax, Sum 41, Halestorm, and many more! The day was not without entertainment and fun and the infectious atmosphere present throughout the entire festival.
Slayer was defiantly the stand out of the day as they treated us to an array of songs including South of Heaven, War Ensemble, Payback and of course Raining Blood. It was amazing for their last ever show in Sydney and it was a bitter sweet moment as we won't get to see them rock with us again.
