The UK's number one rock and metal festival
Download Festival 2020 has been cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. Ticket-holders will have the option to roll their ticket over to 2021's festival. You can read the full statement from the festival here.
All Festicket customers will be contacted regarding next steps.
Download Festival is the UK's number one rock and metal festival, consistently showcasing the scene's very best artists at its iconic Donington Park site each June.
Reinforcing the location's legacy as rock 'n' roll's spiritual home, Download welcomes heavy metal and rock icons Iron Maiden, KISS, and System Of A Down as their three major headliners in 2020. It marks one of two homecoming shows for 'Maiden, and UK exclusive shows for both System Of A Down and KISS, the latter of which will be their final ever performance in the country.
In addition to the music, Download has regularly partnered up with wrestling brands including WWE and NXT UK to bring some of the sport's superstars to the festival, while the infamous inflatable Wedding Chapel, Circus of Horrors and musical comedy continue to entertain.
And once the Arena's music has finished, the campsite's afterhours zone keeps things running until 2am on Friday and Saturday with bars, funfair rides and even a cinema.
