Download Festival TV kicks off this lunchtime

With the physical Download Festival succumbing to the fallout of the current Global Pandemic, Metal fans have the second best option by being able to participate in Download TV, with activities kicking off this lunchtime (12 June 2020).

Over the whole weekend, you can join headliners KISS, Iron Maiden and System Of A Down virtually and take in other acts such as Korn, Deftones, Babymetal, Alter Bridge, The Darkness, Volbeat, Creeper and many more.

Note: These performances are only available at the time of broadcast and cannot be streamed later.

The activities kick off today (Friday) at 12pm with Doom Yoga, Trivia, a KISS makeup tutorial with Gemma Stafford and a Cookalong with vegan superstars BOSH. Bands involved include Dinosaur Pile-up, Black Futures, Theory, Of Mice & Men and a world premiere from Chester Bennington’s previous band Grey Daze.

From 7pm, you should head to YouTube for over four hours of performances, exclusive interviews and more, headlined by KISS.
