Just wanted to say thanks for an amazing week with you guys. It was a fantastic experience and one I will remember. I'm a regular at download, and it felt like a luxury being on site with Hotbox. The showers and phone charging facilities were a god send! Catering was really good, and tastier than some of the food I paid double the amount for in the village! All of the management/supervisor staff were very friendly, approachable and down to earth.
Kudos to Tom he was lovely, and very understanding when it started to get really hot, allowing extra sit downs in the shade to cool off. He was very supportive to staff and the public, it was a pleasure to work with him.
Again a huge thanks for letting me join the team. I already can't wait to sign up for next year's Download!
