Download Festival

Mark it in your diaries.

The hot and heavy Download Festival has revealed it will be returning to Australia once again in March 2020.

The Melbourne leg of Download will be moved from Flemington Racecourse to Melbourne Showgrounds. After its inaugural event in 2019, it’s been confirmed that Sydneysiders will get the Download treatment again next year at Parramatta Park.

This year’s lineup featured the all-star power of Slayer, Judas Priest, Alice in Chains, Ghost and plenty more. While Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne was scheduled to headline the festival, he had to, unfortunately, withdraw due to health issues. The first lineup announcement for Download 2020 will drop on Wednesday November 6.
