Metallica will be the headline for the first Download Festival Germany.
James Hetfield and his partner will rock the Hockenheimring Racecourse in the Rhine Valley on June 24, 2022.
At the Heavy Rock and Metal Festival, you’ll also see Metaller’s Five Finger Death Punch and Sabaton performances.
Beginning in Castle Donington, England, the download, formerly known as the Monsters of Rock Festival, is also taking place in France, Spain, Japan and Australia.
Next June, the download will return to Leicestershire with headline performances from KISS, Iron Maiden and Biffy Clyro.
Recently, A Day to Remember, Mastodon, Creeper, Code Orange, Black Veil Brides, Shinedown and more have joined the lineup.
Due to the pandemic, Download held a three-day government test event called the “Download Pilot” this summer.
The reduced capacity of 10,000 fans saw headliners such as Bullet For My Valentine, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, and Enter Shikari after the PCR test showed negative evidence.
And Melvin Ben, managing director of the Festival Republic Group, claimed to have proved that he could attend music events at full capacity without social distance or masks.
After the event, he said, “It’s really amazing. It’s really wonderful. It’s very heartwarming.
“What’s extraordinary about that is the level of compliance with testing, and the requirements we have are absolutely extraordinary.
“That level of compliance is extraordinary, as you would expect when heading to the middle or end of a pandemic.
“It is associated with an extraordinary level of normality as well when you have been away from it for a long time.”
