Download Festival Australia announces sideshows across the country

Amon Amarth

 

Download Festival has already announced a killer lineup for its first ever Aussie outing in Melbourne next March, with Korn, Prophets Of Rage, Limp Bizkit, NOFX, Mastodon, Good Charlotte, Suicidal Tendencies, Gojira and more all heading to Australia.

There’s some other good news for heavy music lovers though, with the festival announcing a stack of sideshows including Prophets of Rage, Good Charlotte, Amon Amarth, The Story So Far, Nails and Neck Deep, while NOFX also announced sideshows earlier today.

It’s a feast of shows for heavy music lovers who can’t make it to Melbourne, but it’s just a portion of what’s on offer at the full shebang. Locked in for March 24 2018 at Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse, the grounds will open up to 25,000 punters for the day as a licensed, all-ages event. And while the inaugural event has chosen Melbourne as its home for this year, there are already plans to expand into a full-scale touring festival when the time is right.

For now, check out all of the sideshow dates below.
