Only a hand full of festivals today have managed to keep the life of the party going for years. One of these festivals is the Download Festival in London.
The young rock follower, Carlotta Cosials had once created a handmade scrapbook filled with the band Arctic Monkeys’ lyrics. Back when nobody had a printer the new song ‘Suck it and see’ had just been released in the year of 2011 which was when Carlotta handwrote all the lyrics in a scrapbook. The 27-yr old guitarist-singer claims to have sparked an obsession for songs when they were first introduced to the one and only, Alex Turner. Carlotta soon created a band called ‘Hinds’ Carlotta and her mates. The band consisted of singer-guitarist Ana Garcia Perrote, bass guitar Ade Martin, and the drummer Amber Grimbergen still think like fans, which is why when they realized that the Arctic Monkeys would be making an appearance in New York the same time as they were there they couldn’t imagine let alone think of missing their idol’s concert.
