My Chemical Romance are returning to Australia for Download 2020

Last week, news broke that pop-punk/emo icons My Chemical Romance are returning from a six-year hiatus. Expectedly, the internet absolutely lost its shit.

Now, for the first time since playing Big Day Out back in 2012, the band have announced their return to Australia. That’s right my friends, MCR are headlining Download Festival 2020 and we’re freaking the fuck out.

Time to pull out the black eyeliner! My Chemical Romance are returning to Australia next year as part of Download Festival 2020.

Next March, Download Festival Australia will be returning for a third installment, and as has come to be expected from the heavy music giant, this year’s lineup is bonkers.

On top of My Chem, you’ll be treated to sets from Deftones (!), Jimmy Eat World, Clutch, Ministry, and a huge stack of others.

The Melbourne leg of the festival will be going down at Melbourne Showgrounds on Friday, March 20th, and the Sydney leg will be happening at Parramatta Park on Saturday, March 21st.

Previous Years Purchaser presale will go on sale Friday, November 8th at 11am AEDT, while the Moshtix & Ticketmaster presale will go on sale on Monday, November 11th at 12pm AEDT.
