The official and verified Instagram page of Megadeth posted a new photo today and announced that they will be one of the bands that will participate in ‘Download Festival 2022’ which was postponed from 2021 to 2022 earlier this year.

Back in March, one of the headliners of the Download Festival, KISS, announced the postponement of the festival and stated that the fans who want to refund will need to wait for Ticketmaster to send an email with details of the refund process to all ticket holders. They will be given the option to be refunded or choose to have yet another ticket for Download 2022.

These days, Megadeth was not one of the bands who will participate in the event. Today, Los Angeles-based heavy metal band announced that they will be part of the event alongside many legendary bands like Iron Maiden, Deftones, Biffy Clyro, Steel Panther, Descendents, and KISS.

Here is what they said:

“Just announced! We’re playing Download Festival next June 10-12, 2022. Weekend tickets are on sale NOW!”
