Download Fest or Mud Fest?

Scattered storms throughout the weekend caused the festival grounds at Donington to become incredibly muddy, and some attendees shared photos of how deep it became at certain points. Some fans rejoiced in the messy chaos, and others weren't too pleased.

Mud can simply be an inconvenience, but it can also be quite hazardous. Fortunately, there weren't any reported injuries as a result of it.

Limp Bizkit Stop Performance to Send Medics to Fan in Crowd

Limp Bizkit stopped their performance at one point on Sunday to help a fan in the crowd who was struggling. In fan-filmed footage, Fred Durst asked the members of the audience to put their hands up where the problem was taking place, and then sent medics to the location.

The vocalist waited to resume the performance until he got the OK from the fans in the area. states that Limp Bizkit covered snippets of Nirvana's "Come As You Are" and Metallica's "Master of Puppets" later in the show.

The Sound Cut Out During Avenged Sevenfold's Set

Avenged Sevenfold closed out the entire weekend last night, but 11 songs into their performance, the sound cut out during "Nightmare." Fortunately, they made it through the majority of the song before it happened, and the loyal fans in the crowd helped them finish it.
