Also driven past today and could see the big wheel from the A42. My ticket has arrived so all good this end! Not had anything from the big green coach company yet though but think this may just be an eticket. (i didnt pay much attention when booking!)

Just looking at the download twitter feed and they are releasing set times on Monday. 

I would expect beer to be £5 a pint? Does anyone know if day ticket holders can take beer on to the site? Obviously not allowed in main arena.

iirc beer was £6 a pint last year, still cheaper than the £6.50 i was paying last friday watching the stones in london.

you can take your own food and drink in to the arena but not alcohol

I’m slightly annoyed about Slither even though it will be cool. I’m there to see Guns N Roses songs, this is a very rare treat for me

So what are your guys guesses for this quality of concert?

In my opnion Download has super poor sound quality, everything on the main stage sounds distinctly 'dry' (I remember it not aiding Bruce Dickinson in the mix, I expect the same to happen with 2018 Axl)

He has 1 more show to wamup then it's time to return to a place I know he holds dear to his heart (the IEM emotions from Download '06 displayed that enough, I know he'll try and bring his a-game under the conditions he can), that being said, I'm expecting a lesser quality than London last yr

Download always ending so early? They're playing graspop from 2200 - 0130....

UK Festivals/Noise Curfews have been super severe for a while now.

I’m expecting it to be bad, really bad and to end early too. 

I thought both the London shows I attended had some very weak moments from him, so if its worse than that, it will be very disappointing.

Sounds like he has a cold or something. 

Fingers crossed for Download, it could get messy if the performance is awful. I attended both London shows last year and thoroughly enjoyed both without thinking he was struggling vocally. He isn't what he used to be and never will be but yesterday was poor.
