Download Festival is expanding beyond the United Kingdom and into Germany in 2022. The debut Download Germany will take place on June 24 at the Hockenheimring racing ring in Hockenheim, Germany, and will feature performances from (so far) Metallica, Five Finger Death Punch, and Sabaton.
Here's what Download Germany had to say about their debut festival (thanks to Google Translate).
"Download has been one of the most popular British festival events for years, where the strongest and most popular rock bands and metal icons present themselves. Download Germany and Metallica will now premiere on June 24, 2022 at the Hockenheimring. And the message for all fans is clear: the best and most impressive Hard'n'Heavy Music Experience ever!
"Download Germany offers the authentic metal genre a new home in the legendary Motodrom at the Hockenheimring. Up to 10 top acts will perform on a huge double stage at the end of June.
"At the start, the organizer Live Nation managed to engage the ultimate of all rock bands as headliners: Metallica – who will play their only concert in Germany next year on Download Germany as part of the release of their newly remastered Black album.
"Together with other absolute rock heavyweights such as Five Finger Death Punch and Sabaton (both 2022 festival exclusive in Germany!) As well as over 70,000 expected visitors, Download Germany wants to ensure a huge and lasting response.
"In addition to festival tickets for the interior, access authorizations for the south stand are available for Download Germany. In the first price level, the interior tickets cost 139 EUR including parking and pre-sale fee. Festival tickets from EUR 159 including parking and advance booking fee are available for the south stand.
"All tickets are available as mobile tickets or, alternatively, as TicketFast for printing."
