Set to make its Aussie debut at Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse in March, Download will also feature sets from Mastodon, Good Charlotte, Suicidial Tendencies, Gojira and more, including Aussie acts like Northlane, Trophy Eyes and King Parrot.
The lineup currently features a total of 28 acts (although 29 are promised on the official lineup poster), and around a third of them are from right here in Australia. View the full roster in all its glory, below.
Music Feeds first broke news of Korn, Limp Bizkit, Prophets Of Rage and NOFX’s inclusion on the lineup earlier this month, before festival organisers revealed the date, venue and other details ahead of the festival’s debut down under.
While Download will make its debut in Melbourne next year, organisers have revealed plans to expand the festival into a national touring event in the coming years, depending on the success of its initial outings.
Download Festival will make its Australian debut on Saturday, 24th March, and will be a licensed 18+ event. Details below.
