Download Festival Melbourne 2018 Set Times Announced

UPDATE: Download Festival Melbourne Unveils New Set Times & Festival Map

ORIGINAL STORY: The first-ever Australian edition of Download Festival has unveiled its official set times for 2018, after adding two new acts to its maiden lineup last week.

Making its Aussie debut at Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse on Saturday, 24th March, Download will be headlined by Korn, Prophets Of Rage and Limp Bizkit, but there are still some pesky clashes to deal with, including between Korn and NOFX, as well as between Limp Bizkit and Suicidal Tendencies.

A total of 28 bands (a third being Aussie acts) will perform across four stages throughout the day, so make sure you’re prepared by checking out Download’s 2018 set times and full lineup, below.

Aussie bands Make Them Suffer and High Tension stepped in for Download’s upcoming Melbourne event last week after Cursed Earth and Alpha Wolf both pulled out of the festival on the same day.

There are tentative plans to expand Download Festival across Australia in the coming years, but organisers have said they’re “not in a hurry”.
