Oh — a lineup announcement will definitely be happening this week — DW about that! But it turns out the FINAL band to be announced on this year’s monster lineup could be *pauses for dramatic effect* YOURS!
That’s coz triple J has teamed with the headbangers-in-chief at Download Australia to launch one of their trademark Unearthed comps to find a local band to open each leg of this year’s fest.
That’s right — one NSW band and one Victorian band will be selected to lube up the stage for legends including Ozzy Osbourne, Slayer, Rise Against and more in Sydney and Melbourne this March.
All you have to do to be in with a chance of being one of those bands is:
a) hail from either of the above states
b) have music uploaded to triple J Unearthed by February 18th, and:
c) have metal, rock or punk selected as your genre
You can head to the triple j Unearthed site for more info, or else peep the full Download Australia 2019 lineup right here.
AND stay tuned to Music Feeds for a new lineup announcement happening very soon, FYI!
