Better start limbering up to hit all those mosh pits, because the lineup for the 2019 UNIFY Gathering is here, and it’s a doozy.
Following weeks of teasing from UNIFY Gathering organisers about which acts might be on this year’s bill (and plenty of speculation on our part, too), the festival has officially dropped its full lineup today, and as promised, it features some pretty huge acts, exclusive one-off shows, and mighty reunions.
Kicking things off for this year’s fest is a couple of huge sets from our international visitors, with Underøath celebrating their first new album in eight years with an exclusive performance, and a legacy set from Taking Back Sunday, who will be performing their 2002 debut, Tell All Your Friends In Full.
We’ll also be seeing the likes of two huge reformations, with Adelaide’s I Killed The Prom Queen bringing back their classic 2005 lineup for the first time in ten years, while Sydney’s Hand Of Mercy will also be getting back together for their first gig since 2016.
It doesn’t stop there though, because we’ll also be seeing some exclusive sets from the likes of Karnivool, Crossfaith, While She Sleeps, Dream State, State Champs, and The Plot In You, while some of Australia’s biggest acts, including Trophy Eyes, In Hearts Wake, Ocean Grove, Dream on Dreamer, Endless Heights, WAAX, and Clowns will also be joining the party.
Of course, if that’s not enough, then the addition of bands such as Turnstile, Citizen, Harms Way, Stand Atlantic, Thornhill, Pagan, Drown This City, Gravemind, After Touch, Ocean Sleeper, Better Half and Yours Truly will surely make this one of the most memorable heavy fests you’ve witnessed.
With a lineup of this magnitude, you can be sure this stunning festive will be selling out in no time. Tickets are on sale today from 12pm from the UNIFY Gathering store, so make sure you get in early to secure your ticket for one of the heaviest weekends in Aussie music you’ll see for a very long time.
