The 2019 edition of Download Festival was headlined by Def Leppard, Slipknot and Tool. Also appearing at the weekender were Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators, Whitesnake, Rob Zombie and Trivium.

Organisers announced the line-up for the 2021 edition will be headlined by by stateside rock royalty KISS, Scottish trio Biffy Clyro and Californian metal outfit System Of A Down. Other acts announced include A Day To Remember, Deftones, KoRn, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Gojira and Volbeat.
