Volunteering was a great experience and let us into a festival we couldn’t otherwise afford. Thank you for the opportunity to experience Download.
I thought Pete was a brilliant shift supervisor. He was clear on what was expected and helped us when we needed it.
It was a good experience and having the compound with plugs and kettles is a great thing. The food stand was also brilliant value for money/festival food.
