Guts Touring Announces 2022 Lineup And Dates

Guts Touring is back for another year, announcing the lineup and dates for its 2022 season. Launching in August, 36 shows will take place across the Northern Territory, South Australia, Victoria, and Tasmania, cementing Guts as one of the country’s largest regional touring operations.

Featuring 19 bands performing at selected dates, the upcoming trek will feature sets from Teen Jesus & The Jean Teasers, Birdz, Emma Donovan & The Putbacks, Children Collide, HorrorshowBad//Dreems, and more. All told, Guts will traverse more than 7000km, holding 20 regional workshops along the way, too.

Guts Touring first launched as ‘Up The Guts’ back in 2016

This year’s Guts roster also includes Black Rock Band, Pist Idiots, Press Club, Rat!Hammock, Body Type, The Grogans, and The Pretty Littles. The live performances will be complemented by a number of workshops, designed to bring students and artists in regional and remote communities together to co-create music and discuss the industry’s career pathways.

Launched in 2016 by The Pretty Littles’ Jack ‘Parso’ Parsons and James ‘Roadtrain’ Clarke, Guts was originally known as the Up The Guts tour, a regional and remote music and workshop series designed to take live music to areas it wouldn’t usually reach. Inspired by the Warumpi Band and Midnight Oil’s iconic 1986 ‘Black Fella/White Fella’ tour through Central Australia, Guts wanted to maintain the Aussie pub-rock scene’s globally-recognised reputation.
