UPDATE: The 2018 UNIFY Gathering lineup has now been announced.
ORIGINAL STORY: Wonder, enchantment and miracles. That is what we can expect from Unify Gathering 2017 if today’s lineup announcement is anything to go by – which it is. As anticipation reaches fever pitch, organisers have treated us with the first batch of musical talent set to perform and best you sit down to read this. Here we go.
Heading the massive bill is: Alexisonfire.
‘Nuff said, right? Well as satisfying as it would be to watch the Canadian heroes of post-hardcore perform for two days straight, it gets even better. Brisbane’s favourite sons and the mouthpiece for Australian punk rock Violent Soho appear right up the top followed by the unstoppable Northlane and the southern hardcore / partycore stylings of Every Time I Die.
The Getaway Plan will be harking back to 2008 as they perform their huge album of that year Other Voices Other Rooms, which includes one of their biggest tracks of all time Down Where The City Meets The Sea. Speaking of 2008, House Vs Hurricane will be reforming for a super special one-off show.
Letlive. will be bringing with them their brand new album, Thy Art Is Murder their new singer and I Killed The Prom Queen will be bringing their album which put Australian metal on the map, Music For The Recently Deceased, having toured off the album earlier in the year.
It’s not just the big names, oh no. Unify will be showcasing a healthy dose of emerging talent from one of the newest members of the UNFD family, the wild Ocean Grove and label mates The Brave as well as Bare Bones.
Plus there’s the likes of Luca Brasi, Moose Blood, Storm The Sky, Deez Nuts, Trophy Eyes, King Parrot, Ocean Grove and many, many more.
Now bigger than ever, UNIFY Gathering 2017 will be a two-night, three-day affair going down at the stunning Tarwin Meadows in Gippsland from Friday, 13th January until Sunday, 15th January.
