ORIGINAL STORY: Hype is peaking for the first-ever Australian edition of the heavy music mecca that is Download Festival, and the fake lineup posters just keep on comin’.
Live Nation, the touring company which is working to bring Download down under in 2018 — having purchased the Australian domain name for the festival last year — has confirmed to Music Feeds that this new poster is yet another fake, and here are just a few obvious reasons why:
- The poster has the same background as that ‘leaked’ UNIFY Gathering lineup poster which was confirmed as a fake back in August
- It’s clearly photoshopped and intentionally blurry
- It lists shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney and Brisbane, which is very unlikely to happen
- It lists too many different tour promoters at the bottom of the poster
Here it is, in all its fake glory…
Download Festival Australia is expected to be officially announced later this month, after Music Feeds first broke news of the festival’s Aussie plans last year.
