You have all been waiting so patiently Downloaders…highlighters ready…. Download 2019 set times are here! Get planning!

With Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy®-winning singer and songwriter Ozzy Osbourne cancelling his trip to Australia last week due to ill health, thrash titans Slayer have stepped into the headline slot and will smash out a mammoth 90 mins set to close both shows! Judas Priest and Alice in Chains will both slam through extended 75 min sets. 90 mins of Slayer… what a way to say goodbye to Australian fans!

After thirty-seven years, twelve studio albums and countless shows, Slayer’s place in music history is secure as one of The Big Four (alongside Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax): they helped define the thrash-metal genre. Even amongst peers of that quality, GrammyAward winningSlayer still proudly stand alone and remain one of the most influential bands in heavy metal history. With Tom Araya’s unmistakable vocal, Kerry King and Gary Holt’s slaughtering guitar riffs, and Paul Bostaph’s hostile drums, and nasty as fuck lyrics, Slayer continue to whip their fans into anarchistic, antichrist fuelled frenzies unmatched by any other act on the planet. Not many bands can add being banned from the Hollywood Palladium for twenty-five years to their resume!

Just over a week until we reconvene with heavy music’s finest in Sydney and Melbourne, see you all there!
