Download Festival Cancelled Following My Chemical Romance Australian Tour Postponement
Download Festival Australia has today announced the cancellation of its Melbourne and Sydney events following the postponement of all Australian and New Zealand performances for headliners My Chemical Romance.
"To our dearest friends -It is with heavy hearts that we have decided to postpone our performances in Australia and New Zealand. We felt this was the right decision for our band, our crew, our fans and family given the current global situation. We apologize to our fans, but please know that we didn't come to this decision lightly. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to being with you all again as soon as we can. In the meantime, please be good to each other." My Chemical Romance
With the announcement coming barely 8 days prior to the commencement of the 2020 events, festival organisers are unable to secure an alternative headliner to deliver a complete line-up for Download fans.
The team are working with My Chemical Romance to schedule headline shows in Australia later in the year. They are also working with a number of artists who have official Download sideshows scheduled, to add headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne next week.
All ticket purchasers to the Download Melbourne and Sydney 2020 events will receive a full refund including booking and payment processing fees. Our Fan Experience team will be contacting account holders on Monday 16th March via email with information regarding the refund process.
