Following the cancellation of this year’s ‘Download Festival,’ initially planned for June 12 – 14 in the UK, organizers have just confirmed the first batch of bands set to appear at next year’s gathering, which happens June 4 – 6, 2021.
An official statement reads:
Of course, we’re all gutted we couldn’t gather in the hallowed grounds of Donington for #DL2020. BUT, we’re stoked for next year, and have we got a MASSIVE announcement for you. We’ve got 80+ #DL2021 names to reveal right here, including your headliners – and there’s still more to come!
We’re psyched to reveal that both KISS and System Of A Down will be returning to headline #DL2021, and Biffy Clyro will be joining them!
Plus A Day To Remember, Deftones, Korn, Gojira, and loads more will be coming to Donington on 4th-6th June. Scroll down for the full deets!
Along with KISS, System of a Down, Billy Clyro, A Day To Remember, Deftones, Korn and Gojira, the 2021 edition of ‘Download’ will also feature the likes of Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Volbeat, Black Veil Brides, Steel Panther, Killswitch Engage, Funeral for a Friend, Electric Wizard, Sepultura, Sleep Token and much more.
