Whip out your mosh shorts and slap on some SPF because Download Festival is back for another scorching year. The festival will be returning to Melbourne and Sydney — celebrating it’s the third consecutive year of bringing thunderous breakdowns to the people of Australia.

Download is set to tear up Melbourne’s Showgrounds on Friday, March 20th, before heading to Sydney’s Parramatta Park on Saturday, March 21st.

The festival has also revealed that we can expect the first lineup announcement to drop on November 6th. That’s right, in one sweet week we will be blessed by the heavy metal and rock gods.

To amp up the anticipation for next years instalment of the festival, why not reflect on the 2019 chapter of the festival here.
