Download 2020 announces new wave of acts for lineup

Download 2020 have announced a new wave of acts joining Donington from Friday June 12 until Sunday June 14 2020.

Some of the new artists announced that will be joining headliners Kiss, Iron Maiden and System of a Down are Bowling for Soup, Funeral for a Friend, The Darkness, and Mastodon.

“UK festival appearances are like children – so precious and impossible to pick a favourite,” says Justin Hawkins from The Darkness.

“This year though, my number one child is our Download slot! I have a pair of pyjama bottoms designed to look like jeans with tickets for Monsters Of Rock 1991 hanging out of the pocket, and that tells you everything you need to know about my excitement levels.”

Also returning to Download is WWE NXT UK, slamming their way back into Donington Park with title-holders NXT UK Champion WALTER, NXT UK Women’s Champion Kay Lee Ray, and NXT UK Tag Team Champions Gallus.
