Gracing the fields of Donnington Race track every year since I was 18, Download festival this year was brought to me by the awesome Mooi En Leif, a dutch Welly company, that is one not to be missed. Forget your high street and flashy brand wellies, Mooi En Lief brings the festival welly to the next level. When they asked if myself, Amy and Leanne would like to go to Download reppin’ the brand, I couldn’t be happier!
Being a huge lover for metal and rock and roll, Download festival is a home from home (except a little bit more untidier). Being one of the largest festivals in Europe, it brings together metal heads from all over to indulge in fantastic line ups, parties, food and that amazing atmosphere.
The girls stayed in a VW camper, I however couldn’t leave my little Download gang I come with every year, so I tented it with my pals and boyfriend Matthew.
The bands I was most excited about was Motley Crue, Billy Idol, The Darkness, Kiss, Slash and the dreamy Miles Kennedy and Black Stone Cherry. Being a classic rocker at heart, I felt the line up this year, particularly the Sunday, was right up my street. I spent the rest of the time sipping (downing) wine and dancing my butt off. The weather could of been better, but if wasn’t for my Mooi En Lief wellies, I really don’t know what I would of done. They kept my feet warm and dry, but also looked awesome with the feather trim. Also my Rains raincoat saved my life with making my look like a huge bin bag. An incredibly stylish rain mac that could tackle a huge down pore!
Thanks again Mooi En Lief for the opportunity and see you again next year Download!
