Melbourne may be the lucky city chosen to host the innaugral Australian arm of Download Festival, but that doesn't mean everyone else has been left in the dust. A bunch of bands including Prophets of Rage, NOFX, and Good Charlotte will hit the road at the end of March, to bring sweet, riffy goodness to those that can't make it to Victoria.

The first run of sideshows will go on sale on Tuesday, 5th December, followed by more throughout the week. Check out the full list below for all the details, and click the links for drop times.
