Ever since the release of ‘Rise Or Die Trying’ back in 2007, Four Year Strong have quickly become one of the forerunners in this generation’s pop-punk movement, bringing a rather crunchier and heavier hitting side to the genre than usual. Still sporting their almost trademark beards nearly five years on from this, their first headline run of the UK in 2012 proves the hype is going stronger than ever.

Note: As only two members of the site were able to review the festival weekend, we were sadly unable to cover every band performing throughout the festival.

One of the longest running popular music festivals in the UK, the Reading/Leeds Festival weekend is well reknowned and has been hugely popular since its inception. This year, we made an appearance at the Leeds site of the event, and what a (muddy) weekend it was. With the Lock Up Stage turned into a Dance Stage for a day and My Chemical Romance headlining the Main Stage, there’s always alternatives to those who are far from fans of the “emo” group.

Note: As only three members of the site were able to review the festival weekend, we were sadly unable to cover every band performing throughout the day.

Extended to a full three-day weekend and being one of the only festivals to be hosted at a wild animal park, Hevy is most definitely a unique beast that’s growing from strength-to-strength year after year since its creation. With such great acts like Sonic Boom Six, Basement and Flood Of Red kicking off the festival weekend, it’s sure to follow in similar great fashion.

It goes without saying that Download Festival is easily one of the pinnacle and most respectable festivals for rock, metal and alternative music in the UK. With years and years of success and acts gracing its grounds, such as AC/DC, Guns N Roses and Slipknot to name just a few of the more famous ones, 2011 is set to keep the festival’s sterling reputation strong and high. On its Friday bill of acts, there’s a range of names both old and new across its four stages, including a return from The Darkness after their indefinite hiatus:
