KISS, Biffy Clyro & Iron Maiden confirmed for Download Festival 2022


Download Festival had been scheduled for June 4-6 2021 at Castle Donington with headliners Kiss, System Of A Down and Biffy Clyro.

Sadly, organisers have been forced to pull this year’s festival due to the UK government guidelines that live music cannot return until later in the summer (from June 21st.)

Despite 2021’s event being unable to take place, Download has announced that the festival will return in 2022 on June 10-12. Kiss and Biffy Clyro will now play next year, with Iron Maiden as the third headliner.

Tickets go on sale March 5 and those purchased for this year’s event can be carried over to 2022.
