Movements, Citizen + More Announce New Bloom Festival 2024 Sideshows

New punk festival on the block New Bloom is set to launch next month with a lineup of international and local favourites, and now we’ve got a stack of bonus sideshows to go along with it.

The touring festival will land in three cities on the east coast across one weekend in March – Brisbane will be the first cab off the rank on Friday, 15th March, with events in Sydney and Melbourne following.

Citizen – ‘If You’re Lonely’

In addition to these three main festy dates, a handful of international acts on the lineup are now extending their Aussie itineraries with bonus headline shows around the country. Mid-west outfit Citizen have announced a pair of sideshows in Adelaide and Perth, while LA’s Movements will be playing extra shows in Melbourne and the Gold Coast, with support from Canadian grunge duo Softcult.

Elsewhere,  LA post-hardcore act Touche Amore have announced four extra shows in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Belgrave, while Boston rockers Fleshwater are doing bonus headline dates in Adelaide, Melbourne, Wollongong, Sydney and Brisbane.
