2020 Download Festival To Become Virtual Event

The 2020 UK Download Festival was recently cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, but that doesn’t mean fans won’t have something to look forward to. According to BBC, the organizers will still be hosting a virtual event on June 12-14. It will include previously unseen performances, interviews, and more.

Organizers issued the following statement:

“We’ll have three daily shows with a mix of music, special interviews, unseen performances, exclusive footage, interactive content and loads more. The shows will be broadcast across the Friday, Saturday and Sunday — recreating the best weekend of the summer in the safety and comfort of your own home!

The full line up is still to be announced, but we’ll be showcasing some of the incredible acts that were due to play Download 2020.

Of course, we want you lot to be as involved as ever! Put your tents and flags up in your garden, send us pics of previous years, air guitar to your fave bands — this weekend is about YOU, the fans, and celebrating the Download community.

That said, Download Dog reminds you to stay safe, stay home and save lives. Practice safe social distancing and make sure you’re only hosting tent parties with members of your own household — but we encourage you to rock out over video chat with your festival pals!”

The virtual festival will be streamed across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

2020 UK Download Festival Cancelled

The 2020 UK Download Festival has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event was originally set to take place on June 12-14 with Iron Maiden, System Of A Down, KISS, and more set to perform.

Organizers issued the following statement:

“Download Festival will no longer be taking place this year.

We’ve been closely monitoring this unprecedented situation and it’s become clear that it just isn’t possible for the 2020 festival to go ahead. This decision hasn’t been taken lightly and we’re beyond disappointed, we extend our heartfelt apologies to all of you – we really did try to make this work.

Please rest assured we will be back next year. Now, more than ever, we need the Download spirit to thrive and offer support to those that need it most. We’ll do our best to put together an amazing line up for you in 2021 and can’t wait to see you all then. Thank you, as ever, for your continued support.

We are working closely with our ticketing partners now and they will be in touch very soon to process your refund, or, if you prefer, you can retain your ticket and carry it over to next year. Look out for an e-mail from your ticketing agent very soon and please only contact them if you have not been contacted after 5 days as they are very busy at this time.”

Australian Download Festival Dates Cancelled

The 2020 Australian Download Festival dates have been cancelled. The move was made after My Chemical Romance pulled out due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“IT IS WITH INTENSE DISAPPOINTMENT THAT WE ANNOUNCE THAT MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE WILL NOT BE COMING TO AUSTRALIA TO PLAY DOWNLOAD.

MCR have released the following statement today:

“To our dearest friends –

It is with heavy hearts that we have decided to postpone our performances in Australia and New Zealand. We felt this was the right decision for our fans, our band, our crew, and our families given the current global situation. We apologize to our fans, but please know that we didn’t come to this decision lightly. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to being with you all again as soon as we can. In the meantime, please be good to each other.” My Chemical Romance

Given that this announcement has come barely 8 days prior to Download Australia we will not be able to secure an alternative headliner as there is insufficient time to secure visas and arrange the other relevant logistics that are required prior to the festival.

As we are unable to deliver a complete line-up to meet the standard that Download fans both expect and deserve, we have very reluctantly made the decision to cancel Download Australia 2020.

The Download team has been working around the clock to create an unforgettable experience for heavy music fans and we are devastated not be able to deliver this show to Australian Downloaders as planned.

We are currently working with both My Chemical Romance and Deftones to schedule separate headline shows in Australia in 2020 and will update you all as soon as we have these.

We are also working with a number of artists who have official Download side shows scheduled, to add headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne next week, stay tuned for these dates.

All ticket purchasers to the Download Melbourne and Sydney 2020 events will receive a full refund including booking and payment processing fees.

We appreciate that the decision to cancel Download Australia will cause huge disappointment and may create major difficulty for ticket holders, for which we sincerely apologise.

Moshtix will contact account holders on Monday 16th March via email with information regarding the refund process. We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience. For any questions relating to your Download ticket purchase, please contact Moshtix directly https://tixsupport.moshtix.com.au/“
