Behold! The greatest dancing at a festival, ever

Not even the floods at Download could dampen this man's groove

So great was the rain and flooding at this weekend's Download festival that fans dubbed it 'Drownload 2016'. However, not even the constant, relentless download could dampen one man's spirits. 

Videos of the flooding (and people getting a bit too carried away in the mud) have gone viral, but now one man has come to steal the limelight. 

The below video of a man bringing a little sass and theatricality to the sodden fields of Donington Park has been spread across Facebook like wildfire. We admire his spirit, and only wish we could move with half as much grace in such depressing conditions. We applaud you sir.
