    aww good luck getting a ticket - I've seen the line-up and it looks wicked this year... I swear there's a website where people sell unwanted gig tickets at face value but I have no idea what the site is! Sorry that's not a lot of help! Maybe someone here knows? Or maybe scout one out on the official Download forum?

    Actually gumtree.com has a section for people selling unwated gig tickets so have a look there...

    Tickets on Ebay are very expensive... there are a few on there right now and one is about to sell at over £300.

    it was probably me that bought it lol :mad:
    I gave in. i posted in a few place. and on the official site but they shut me down after a few posts lol. I know its expensive, but i thought what the hell. i might never get the chance again. and i.ll know better next time. thanks for the advice tho. this years line up does look great tho. :)

    when you work out how many bands you will see then I think it does justify the price of the ticket :)

    Have fun x

    the main headliners at Reading are Kings of Leon, Radiohead and Artic Monkeys...

    Metallica headlined on the sunday last year which was completely different from the usual

    i saw metallica a few years back rachella, nearly sent me to sleep. in fact i can remember thinking i wish it would end cos there was a KFC outside, maybe metallica is to blame for the weight lol, beginning of the end right there lol

    as long as u have ur ticket and get ur travel sorted just go with the flow lol. is it ur first festival or just first time at download?

    the lineup on the website tends to be in order with the headliners at the top and the first bands at the bottom of the list for each stage. they do eventually put up the times so you can work out who you are going to see and when but they don't do that until a day or 2 before the festival despite knowing for months lol!!

    getting excited now had my tickets booked since they came out :) but now its SOOOOOON :D

    yeh i have to give up summer holidays tho now i am a festival junkie! they are so expensive and everything at them is REDICULOUSLY overpriced esp download. 2 quid for a 500ml bottle of coke or water!! and 6quid for a burger. its INSANE! but sooo much fun so ignore the moaning lol
