Download Festival Australia Adds Two New Acts To 2018 Lineup

After losing not one but two acts last week, the first-ever Australian edition of Download Festival has now added two replacement acts to its 2018 lineup.

Set to make its Aussie debut in Melbourne in March, Download has come good on its promise to replace local bands Alpha Wolf and Cursed Earth, who both pulled out of the festival on Friday.

Replacing the bands, and joining the likes of Korn, Prophets Of Rage and Limp Bizkit on the Download roster, are Perth metalcore crew Make Them Suffer and Melbourne punks High Tension.

Today’s new additions arrive ahead of Download Festival’s Melbourne set times, which are expected to drop next week. Peep the full festival lineup, below.

Download Festival will take place at Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse on Saturday, 24th March, and there are tentative plans to expand the festival across Australia.
