"Download with Vukovi was certainly a wet and wild weekend. Artist highlights for us had to be Babymetal (if you don't take it too seriously it's amazing and I also want to be pals with them), DEAD! who are absolutely nailing their live set right now and Deftones who are one of our big influences.

"We felt slightly out our depth at first but you just have to put your big boy and girl pants on and give the crowd a set you don't want to forget. Whether it's climbing the barrier and nearly getting your set cut or grabbing someone's phone to take a video and forget whose phone it was?! (Awkies) Anyway, this weekend seemed like a taste of what's to come and we're slowly but surely adapting. We especially want to thank our man Ryan Johnston who happily put up with us for the full weekend and took these swell photos (swell? I'm going with swell)."
