The gods of rock descend on Melbourne for a day of face-melting metal

Be amongst the first outside of Europe to witness this holy grail of rock as Download Festival arrives on Australian shores for the first time.

The festival, which is already a staple on the UK festival scene, will seemingly fill the hole left by rock festival Soundwave, which sadly perished in 2016. Download's debut Australian line-up will feature alt-metal legends Korn (their only Australian appearance), heavy-metal rockers Mastodon, pop-punkers Good Charlotte, Tom Morello’s supergroup Prophets of Rage! as well as Aussie acts like Northlane, Ocean Grove and Trophy Eyes.
