The first line-up for the inaugural Download Festival Melbourne have been announced and goddamn is it an incredible list. You have punk-rock heavyweights like NOFX, Bad Cop/Bad Cop, Good Charlotte, thrash icons Suicidal Tendencies, mainstream icons Mastodon, Korn (Only Australian Show) and Limp Bizkit, and many others.
To round out the list, Prophets of Rage, Gojira, Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy, Falling In Reverse, Neck Deep Sabaton, Hot Water Music, Of Mice & Men, The Story So Far, Northlane, Trophy Eyes, Nails, Issues, Ocean Grove, Psycroptic, King Parrot, Clowns, Chase Atlantic, Cursed Earth & Alpha Wolf will be on the show.
NOFX and Suicidal Tendencies are two of my favourite bands on the planet and the fact they will be on the same show and on the same day is amazing.
Tickets for the mammoth show on sale from 9am AEDT, Thursday 16 November via the Download Festival website: www.downloadfestival.com.au
