NEWS: Download Fest Freezes Over – Sept til Dec – Six Headline Tours


Whether you couldn’t make it to Download, didn’t like the idea of camping or just want to see your favourite bands again, Live Nation are bringing you ‘Download Freezes Over’, which will descend on the UK’s cities later this year from September to December. It will consist of six tours featuring Escape the Fate, Upon A Burning Body, Hacktivist, King 810, Sikth and Turbowolf.

Promotor, Dave Bradley, said: “Essentially it’s our way of bringing a bit of Download to fans at a point in the year when it’s not possible to congregate in a field to enjoy the best that the world of rock and metal has to offer. It’s Download’s chance to champion and nurture the bands we find really exciting and really believe in.” He added: “Six headline tours from six awesome Download bands across the UK this winter. Don’t miss it.”

You can pick up a Download Freezes Over Pass, which allows the holder access to all shows until 31st August (one show per tour), while they are still available. Tickets are on sale now! via Live Nation or Ticketmaster.
