Remember when we had to say that Download Festival 2020 was cancelled due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic? Sad times were had for all there. It never went ahead but that meant the organisewrs were hard at work for the 2021 iteration of the festival.
The time has come for the first bands of the festival to be announced.
Aiming to maintain as much of the 2020 lineup as possible, Kiss and System Of A Down have been announced as headliners with Biffy Clyro taking Iron Maiden’s place who are sadly unable to be in attendance.
In addition to this, 70+ acts have been confirmed with the headliners including Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Black Veil Brides, Boltbeat, The Darkness , Steel Panther and more.
