T'was the eve before the very first Download Festival in Paris, and I had been awake for 48 hours, having travelled from Toronto to London and then onto Paris across six time zones. But, who needs sleep when you have a day of great friends, great bands and great food ahead of you?!

The festival was a HUGE success and I spent the day watching and photographing some of my favourite bands including very entertaining sets from Baby Metal and Korn. Photo highlights below from my favourites Arcane Roots, Twin Atlantic and Biffy Clyro...
