Download Festival Melbourne Unveils New Set Times & Festival Map

Download Festival organisers have revealed some tweaked set times and a festival map ahead of the heavy music event’s Aussie debut in Melbourne this weekend.

While Download’s original set times were first released in February, a new set has now arrived, featuring triple j Unearthed act Cast Down and some new set times and stages for other acts.

Sabaton, for example, have been moved to an earlier set on a bigger stage, while Aussie crew Northlane have also received an earlier set.

Ocean Grove have been pushed earlier on a different stage, while King Parrot are now much earlier in the day on one of the festival’s main stages. Peep the new set times (and festival map) in full, below.

In other Download news, organisers have revealed the festival’s signing tent will be open from 1pm to 9pm on Saturday, giving fans a chance to meet their favourite acts. Specific times for certain acts will be announced later this week.

Organisers have also announced they’re bringing an ‘Inflatable Church’ to Download this year — to spread love and “unholy matrimony” — after also announcing their food and markets lineup earlier this month.

Download will make its Australian debut at Flemington Racecourse on Saturday, 24th March, and will be headlined by Korn, Prophets Of Rage and Limp Bizkit.

Full lineup below.
