Download Festival Melbourne Announce Set Times

The inaugural Download Festival Melbourne descends on Australia in just under a month at Flemington Racecourse on Saturday 24 March. To keep the buzz flowing, organisers have unveiled the day’s official set times.

With a debut festival as stacked as this one, clashes are, surprisingly, low. Though, as the night falls, there is bound to be some overlapping with the larger acts. Korn, who’ll be performing exclusively at Download Festival Melbourne, will butt heads with NOFX; while Suicidal Tendencies and Limp Bizkit share a major section of each other’s sets. Be sure to enter those gates early as local favourites tear up the stages. Ocean Grove, Clowns, King Parrot and Northlane will all get your feet kicking in the afternoon.

Earlier this month, Australian acts Make Them Suffer and High Tension were announced to take the places of Cursed Earth and Alpha Wolf who both withdrew from the festival due to internal complications in the bands.
