Parramatta Park had initially advised they could host Download 2020. However, once the festival had independent external consultants and various experts assess the site area allocated, (as suggested by Parramatta Park), it was found that given the unique setup and infrastructure required for the event, it would not be the right space to deliver the reassurance to safely present the event with the number of people attending, stages and crowd movement.
Patron safety is our number one priority, and to ensure you have the best possible experience, the event needs to be moved from Parramatta Park.
