The ground hasn’t begun to stop shaking yet upon the reveal of the massive 2020 Download Festival lineup, and everyone is having some bloody strong reactions to it.
Earlier today, it was revealed that My Chemical Romance would be headlining the festival in a huge shock to punters across the country, as the band had only just announced their internet-breaking reunion last week.
Naturally, people are freaking out.

In fact, there are plenty of people that don’t even really want to go to the festival, but are willing to just for MCR.
download isn’t usually my thing but 2020 looks like it is 🙂

As with every festival lineup announcement though, some people aren’t too chuffed.
Pretty shit, My Chemical Romance aren’t really a Download headliner

Disappointing I think. I guess the Emo kids will be happy. Not worth flying to Sydney or Melbourne for though. Just not for me I guess. Maybe next year.

Oof, that's disappointing.
