Download will happen for Sydney for 2019 after debuting in Melbourne last weekend.

Melbourne worked, now Sydney will be added next year.

“We could not be happier with how Download rolled out in 2018,” organiser Nigel Melder said. “The warmth and support from the heavy music community was unprecedented. From fans to industry and media the love has been out of this world. We can’t thank everyone enough for their behaviour yesterday and we are excited to confirm that Download will return to Melbourne and also make its Sydney debut in 2019.”

Download founder Andy Copping flew in from the UK to experience Download Melbourne and had this to say:

“It was an incredible honour to bring Download Festival to Australia and no better place than at Flemington Racecourse, or as it was renamed by fans Donmington, in the heart of Melbourne. Seeing all the bands just hanging out and supporting each other on stage encapsulates the true camaraderie and spirit of this kind of music, this scene and this festival. Thank you Download Australia, particularly the fans cause it’s nothing without you lot, you have truly have taken the festival to your hearts and we cannot wait to be back again for you next year!”

Download Melbourne was seen by around 30,000 punters. The festival featured Korn, Limp Bizkit, Mastadon, Prophets of Rage and NOFX.

2019 dates are yet to be confirmed.
