Gather your heavy music mates and get ready… Download has announced its return to Melbourne (with new home at Melbourne Showgrounds) and Sydney (back to Parramatta Park) in 2020!
Back in 2018 we saw the Australian debut of the world’s premiere rock and metal festival with 30,000 heavy music fans descending on Flemington christening Melbourne into the Download family alongside Donington UK, (the spiritual home of rock), Paris France, Madrid Spain.
In 2019, Download backed it up with a mammoth line up of sonic brutality featuring the likes of Slayer, Judas Priest, Alice In Chains, Sweden’s Ghost, hardcore punks Rise Against and Gympie’s much-loved metalcore sons The Amity Affliction, AND decided to get Sydneysiders in on the fun too.
If the past two years are anything to go by, we are in for it with Download 2020. The lineup drops on November 6. Better start limbering up to hit the mosh pit stat.
It all goes down at Melbourne Showgrounds on Friday March 20.
