The organizers of Download Festival have announced that the festival will be going ahead in a virtual capacity.
Festival season may have been canceled, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get out your air guitars and dance to your favorite music with your favorite tinnies in your own back garden.
The following announcement was shared on the Download Festival Twitter account: “Get ready for Download TV. A 3-day virtual festival coming at you live via the Download socials 12-14 June, feat unseen performances, interviews, and interactive content.
“Pitch your tent and prepare to mosh, we’re bringing Donington to you this Summer!”
In support of their decision to take the festival virtual, the organizers of Download said in a statement: “Download Festival would like to remind everyone to stay safe, stay home and save lives – practice safe social distancing and only host Download TV tent parties within your own household groups, do not encourage group gatherings.”
The official lineup for the festival will be announced soon. It looks like festival season has not been canceled after all.
