Your band could join the 2018 Download Festival Australia lineup

A Shot At Glory

For those of you who are super observant, you might’ve noticed that only 28 out of 29 bands have been announced for Download Festival’s inaugural Australian event. The confusion has been cleared up with the news that the 29th artist could very well be you.

Partnering with triple j Unearthed, Download is searching for homegrown Aussie talent to be their final act alongside the likes of Korn, Limp Bizkit, and Prophets of Rage. The criteria to enter is pretty simple: be a metal/rock/punk artist, reside in Victoria, and have your music uploaded to triple j Unearthed by Monday February 19.


The winner of the competition will join the massive Download lineup when the festival hits Melbourne on Saturday March 24. For more information, visit triple j Unearthed or Download Australia's official website.
