The lineup for Download Festival 2021 is here!

While 2020 headliners KISS and System of a Down will return for next year, Iron Maiden won’t be on the bill. Instead, Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro will take their spot.

Over 80 acts are confirmed for the festival, including Deftones, Korn, The Distillers, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Rise Against, Black Veil Brides, Creeper, Poppy, A Day To Remember, Mastodon, The Darkness, Bush and more.

“2020 has been a tough year for us all, and we were beyond gutted not to be able to experience Download Festival with you all,” says festival organizer Andy Copping. “We gave you Download TV to reflect on memories of the past, and what the festival means to all of us.

“Download 2021 is going to be something special and go down in the history books as when the Download family reunited. We’re going to be working hard behind the scenes to make Download 2021 an unforgettable experience and a celebration of the festival we all love.”

Download Festival 2021 takes place at Donington Park from June 4th-6th. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 7th. See the full lineup and get ticket details here.
