Synyster Gates spoke a little about headlining Download Festival 2014 with BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show with Daniel P Carter. You can hear his short segment from 1:05:13-1:06:16.
“We’re headlining Donington today. We’re very excited about it so it’s just been a pretty exciting day. I mean, today’s the prep day so I’m really excited to get out there on stage and that’s when everything comes alive, you know, and then after is the big celebration and I love that I get to do that with my best friends.
I’ve approached this day probably a little differently. I mean the magnitude of it’s pretty overwhelming to be honest and there are quite a bit more songs to play, big staging and all that kind of stuff so, to make sure you’re out of the way of the flames and you’ve got all your parts down and you know all about the stage and how big it is and where to go. I mean, there is a no holds bared, no expenses spared, it’s the biggest deal, you know, to be playing this day is really cool. The stars aligned for us to put on the biggest show that we’ve ever put on.”
