Kerrang! and National Express team up for the ultimate awards and Download package!
With summer just around the corner, you need to make your festival travel plans soon. But don't panic - let National Express do the hard work!
This is it. Festival season is finally upon us. Whether you're heading to Download or Reading/Leeds, enjoying yourself with some of the best bands in the world is going to be all too easy. That said, travelling to a festival can be more tedious than putting your non-waterproof tent up in the inevitable summer rain. Surely, there's got to be an easier way than running through train stations with your camping gear trying to catch a connection, or being cramped in a tiny car while your friends swear at the Sat Nav? Well, fear not. There is a better way - National Express! The safest, most direct and hassle-free way of getting to the gates of the UK's hallowed festival grounds.
Let's talk benefits. For one, it's direct - National Express coaches will drop you off and pick you up from the site. It's also flexible. Did you know that there are services going out on three days to Download this year? It's that simple. No fuss. No missed trains. No need to hitchhike and no need to worry about driving. Also, you might think you're a regular Lewis Hamilton, but will you and your friends be in a fit state to drive home after three days of partying? Don't risk being unintentionally over the limit or too tired to drive. Let a professional transport you and your hangover home instead - that way you can sleep on the way in/out. Festivals are all about meeting new people, and nothing will prepare you for the best weekend of your life like getting on a coach with fellow festival goers. You just don't get that kind of atmosphere buried beneath camping gear on the backseat of your mate's car. Oh, and speaking of 'atmosphere', travelling by coach also means less damage to the environment. And who doesn't want to save the world every now and then?
