But dates for next year have been confirmed...

Download Festival will not take place in 2021.

The metal and hard rock festival had planned to host a 2021 instalment, if conditions surrounding the pandemic permitted.

Sadly, it seems as though it just won't be possible to host a full scale event this year, so the team have taken the tough decision to call off this summer's event.

All is not lost, however - Download will return in 2022, and will take place between June 10th - 12th.

Kiss, Iron Maiden, and Biffy Clyro will headline, with all previously purchased tickets set to follow over.

Here's the announce.
