Download Festival

By Kris | June 20, 2010

Ginger had two glorious appearances at the Download festival last weekend. Firstly with the Michael Monroe band headlining the pepsi max stage. See the download site for Michael Monroe photos

The next day in a welcome diversion from the unexpected rain, Ginger and 8 other acoustic guitar wielders set about rousing the crowd with a succession of Wildhearts classics in a format dubbed ‘guitarmageddeon’. The crowd was in fine voice and Ginger commented afterwards on Twitter: “Back from Download. Had WAAYYY too much fun. Acoustic set was an AMAZING experience. Thank you for being so wonderful

The full line up was as follows:

See the following YouTube links for a few samplers of the mayhem.

Red Light Green Light
Nita Nitro

    Accoustic set was amazing, actually turned out to be one of my highlights of the whole weekend. Only complaint was that it was way too short! 30 mins in a headline slot!
