The world’s premiere rock and metal event is set to hit Australia for the first time with a tsunami of international and local acts flooding Melbourne this coming March. Fifteen mammoth years in Donington UK, the spiritual home of rock, two years complete in Paris France, one year in Madrid Spain, and now… we are beyond stoked to be rolling out the welcome mat for Download Melbourne 2018.

News that is sure to slap a smile across the **** of heavy music fans across the country, pure rock fury is set to burn through Flemington Racecourse this Autumn, twenty-eight bands, across four stages, in one day! Ice cold beer, great food and an endless crew of heavy music fans!

“It is a great honour and very exciting that we are bringing Download Festival to Australia. Since the inception of Download UK in 2003, we have been looking for other territories to launch the festival and having successfully found a home for Download in France and Spain, we felt that the next country had to be Australia. Many rock fans from Australia have been in contact with us asking us to bring the festival to them – we have finally heard their calling and I cannot wait to put Download Australia on the map!” Andy Copping Download Founder

“When it comes to festivals, heavy music fans have had little option of late, with Download recently expanding from its Donington stronghold, into Paris and Madrid, it seems like the perfect time for it to storm down here. Starting with a single day event in Melbourne with the intention to grow it at a sustainable pace over the coming years, to a nationally touring festival for the long term. We have 28 bands in total, 1/3 of those are Australian. We are really excited to have the Australian artists on the line up for Download Melbourne, Oz heavy acts are drawing a lot of people both here and overseas so we are happy to be able to showcase that strength.” Nigel Melder Download Melbourne Producer.

  • REPOST FOR MY MUM. SO MUCH FOR GOING OUT WITH A DISABILITY! You really need to lift your game. I have a presale code and have tried to book a ticket to go with my attendant carer and family/friends. The ticket sellers can't sell me a ticket to go with my wheelchair and carer. All they could do was give me a pathetic general "info@" email address. Who knows how long it will take for them to get back to me. I ended up booking tickets for my friends/family so they don't miss out because of me. I don't know if I will be able to get a ticket and join them before they sell out. What a disgraceful way to treat people with disabilities. It shouldn't be this hard to book a ticket and we shouldn't be in a position where we will probably miss because you haven't provided a way for us to book easily. I couldn't even get a phone number to call and try and sort in out quicker. DEFINETLY NOT A SYSTEM THAT SUPPORTS INCLUSION FOR THOSE WITH DISABILITIES!!!!
  • Anymore bands being announced?
  • Does anyone know if tickets will sell out fast?
