To say that UNFD have had a busy year would be the understatement of, well, the year. In between signing new bands and announcing massive tours, the label has begun to drip feed information for the impending UNIFY Gathering 2017, confirming today the lineup announcement date as well as another “big announcement” for the event.
Wednesday, June 22nd is the day that the event will be attributed with a lineup, UNFD confirmed today. It’s anyone’s guess at this stage who will make the cut for the boutique event that is rapidly outgrowing their frame with demand increasing exponentially with each year. Now in its third, the event has a perfect score with two out of two selling out.
The line up will drop a few weeks after what has been slated as a “big announcement” regarding the festival going down on June 1st. Here are Music Feeds we’re salivating at the possibilities – could it be happening in other states similar to a Soundwave model? Time will tell.
UNIFY Gathering is proving to be somewhat of an unstoppable force. The inaugural event in 2015 saw UNFD offering the finest selection from their roster – The Amity Affliction, In Hears Wake, Northlane and more. For 2016, they kicked things up about 10 million or so gears announcing Parkway Drive, Tonight Alive and international flavour from Neck Deep, State Champs, and Stray From The Path.
Hell, if they continue on that trajectory, we’ll be looking at some serious international heavyweights making their way down for 2017. Like, serious serious.
