KISS, System Of A Down, Korn Lead UK Download Fest’s Huge 2021 Lineup

Festival lineups for 2021 are starting to creep back all over the world, and the UK arm of Download Festival has just unleashed their colossal bill.

Leading the huge lineup is KISS, System Of A Down and Biffy Clyro – the former two of which were slated to play the 2020 iteration of the festival alongside Iron Maiden.

“We’re disappointed we weren’t able to make it over this year, but we’re looking forward to next. Absence makes the heart grow fonder,” said System of a Down bassist Shavo Odajian in a press statement.

“Mostly, we all just want to make sure everyone is provided with a safe and secure environment, so we were prepared to wait as long as we needed to.”

Alongside the headliners are the likes of Korn, A Day To Remember, Deftones, Gojira, Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, Volbeat and more.

The UK 2020 festival was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, much like the Australian leg of the festival that was set to be headlined by My Chemical Romance, Deftones and Jimmy Eat World.

Download UK 2021 is set to go ahead from 4th – 6th June next year in Donington Park in Derby, England. Tickets are on sale this Friday, 7th August if you’re brave enough.
