You can grab your rock n’ roll “sans Santa” pics with the Download Dog in Sydney, 12pm – 1pm on Saturday the 14th of December; and at Rare Records (Highpoint Shopping Centre) – Maribyrnong, 7pm – 8pm on Thursday 19th December.

According to the Download Roadie Elves, DD will be dishing out loads of “fur-ocious treats from his doggie bag full of surprises, including merch vouchers and a chance for you to get your hands-on tickets to Download 2020 for you and a mate!” Novelty aside, what a great incentive to sit on a red hot dog’s lap right there.

My Chemical Romance will headline Download 2020 alongside metal, punk, and core heavyweights Deftones, Jimmy Eat World, Ministry, Clutch, In Flames, and many more.

Tickets for both shows are still available – and a great stocking stuffer for the Xmas loving rocker in your life. Just ask Metal God Rob Halford!
