Download TV Announces Monster Virtual Line Up


System Of A Down, Iron Maiden and Kiss will headline the virtual Download TV festival, which will stream on YouTube and social media from June 12th through the 14th.

All three bands were set to headline this year’s Download Festival, in Leicestershire, that was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The virtual fest promises footage from prior Download appearances, socially distant performances, interviews, and exclusive content from the bands that were initially slated for this year’s lineup.

Kiss will “headline” Friday’s programming, with replays of its 2015 Download set.

Saturday night belongs to Maiden, featuring vintage performances, clips from its most recent tour and exclusive content for Download TV.

System Of A Down will close out the festivities on Sunday with clips from its Download sets in 2005, 2011, and 2017.

Download TV will also air interactive content, such as celebrity “cookalongs,” artist Q&As and more.
