With only its 3rd year of existence, Download Festival is already cementing itself as the best Heavy Rock & Metal festivals in Spain, if not Europe! Attracting some of the biggest names in the game and gradually bringing in a more international audience, the festival doesn’t seem to be slowing down, with yet another year of a great line-up. From the 28th to the 30th of June, legendary bands such as Slipknot, Papa Roach, Tool, Sum41 and many, many more will grace the stage and deliver what is going to be yet another unforgettable edition of this beloved festival!
Having its first edition in Madrid back in 2017, this festival has appeared for 14 years in the UK, and on one occasion in France, and the consistency and quality of the shows, the organization and the experiences lived by the fans have made it what it is today, a long-lasting, quality festival that few manage to level. With 2 successful previous years in the Spanish capital (with over 200,000 of attendance), Download is back, better and bigger.
One of the things that makes this year so special is the return of bands that haven’t played to the capital’s audience in over a decade! It’s crazy to think that last time TOOL played was 13 years ago, and the last time Slipknot played was back in 2009. But with a new album to be released, and already a viral appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel stage just a week ago, fans will be excited to see the band return, and mosh pits will definitely ensue. A warm welcome is definitely to be expected.
