At 10:30am, the Download Pilot main stage is decked out with an enormous wall of lights. Perched on top is a massive drum kit. In the cold light of morning, it still manages to look imposing. Twelve hours later, as the whole thing flashes and flares like a UFO, delivering a blinding accompaniment to the final moments of Bullet For My Valentine's headlining set, it's an awesome spectacle.
As a way of bringing this special, weird weekend to a close, it's appropriate that the job should be handled by a band who have been insisting this place at the top of the bill will one day belong to them. In the event, Bullet can chalk their dream gig up as a triumph. Indeed, so ready and drilled for this are they, it's not actually all that different than what they might normally do, just a harder-flexing version.
