The only soundtrack you need <3
Music / Playlist
It has finally arrived – this weekend Download Festival will be touching down in Australia, and these are the songs we'll definitely be getting our horns in the air for.
With only a few days until the monolith that is Download Festival storms through Melbourne and Sydney, we’re getting prepared by blasting out the songs we can’t wait to hear live.
Turn the volume to at least 100 for this one.
There’s a reason that Download has cemented itself as the world’s premier rock and metal festival – because without a doubt, no matter the location or the year, they manage to pull together the perfect selection of literal legends, throwback favourites, incredible live acts, and the best up and comers we need to know.
For this year’s instalment – the second in Australia, and first to touch down in Sydney – they’ve prepared another day that is sure to provide some insane lifelong memories. With legends like Slayer, and Alice in Chains leading the way, backed up by the likes of Sum 41, Rise Against, Behemoth, and Halestorm, it’s sure to be one heck of a loud, sweaty, amazing day.
Set times should be dropping really soon, and to make sure you’re well acquainted with the lineup – we know festival planning means making some hard, and often cutthroat, decisions – we’ve put together an almighty playlist.
