Of course, these virtual festivals are becoming more and more common amid the coronavirus pandemic, with the UK’s legendary Download hosting theirs last weekend.
We ‘sent’ Kerrang! writer Sam Law to attend the livestreaming event as if it were the real thing, with Sam concluding after a three-day metal bonanza in his garden: “As coverage ends in time for the 9pm BBC Rock Show afterparty, a more positive realisation dawns. My neighbours are finally at peace. The tent is packed up. The laptop is stowed. The 63 empty cans and bottles I’ve somehow generated have been shoved into recycling. My hot shower and soft bed are calling – and I’ve made it through a full weekend without fresh injuries or a lost phone. By Monday morning, the countdown to Download 2021 will begin: a sweeter-than-ever showcase that might just be the best ever.”
