  • Biggest British rock festival at the Hockenheimring for the first time on 24 June

Download has been one of the most popular British festival events for years, presenting the strongest and most popular rock bands and metal icons. Now Download Germany will premiere with Metallica on 24 June 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. 

For the start, organiser Live Nation managed to engage the ultimate of all rock bands as headliners: METALLICA – who will play their only German concert at Download Germany next year as part of the release of their newly-remastered Black Album.

The line-up for the first edition of Download Germany is complete: rounding out the programme alongside British punk rock sensation Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes and post-hardcore high-flyers Holding Absence are cross-over phenomena Poorstacy and Ghostkid. The four new additions join previously confirmed acts Five Finger Death Punch, Sabaton, and Behemoth, as well as the headliner Metallica, ensuring the festival programme at the Hockenheimring will be as intense as it is varied.

In addition to festival tickets for the indoor area, admission tickets for the South Stand are available for Download Germany. In the first price category, tickets for the inside area cost 139 EUR including parking and advance booking fee. Festival tickets for the south stand are available from 159 EUR including parking and advance booking fee. VIP tickets will also be available shortly.

All tickets are available as mobile tickets or alternatively for printing as TicketFast.
