The first Australian Download Festival line-up has finally arrived, and it’s chock-a-block with acts guaranteed to spark circle pits and walls of death. Perhaps both. Maybe at the same time.
Nu-metal mainstays Korn and Limp Bizkit, supergroup Prophets of Rage, and modern metal pioneers Mastodon will lead the packed Melbourne event, which will also serve a slew of heavy sub-genres.
Do you like your metal punishing, technical, and from France? Gojira! Do you like riffs heavy enough to powderise your spine? Nails! Do you not want to be in love? Good Charlotte!
A heap of Aussie acts also fill the ranks, including Northlane, Psycroptic, and the inimitable King Parrot.
Download Festival will take place at Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse on Saturday March 24, 2018. Tickets for the event can be purchased HERE.
