With dates already locked in for the 2016 edition of Aussie heavy music event UNIFY Gathering, organisers have announced the festival’s entire lineup has now been booked and will be unveiled on 25th September.
In a statement posted to Facebook, UNIFY says its 2016 lineup will boast not only “the cream of the crop of Australian bands” but also three international acts.
“We’re super proud of this lineup – 2015 was always going to be hard to top, but I think we’ve done it – and we only repeated three acts, all who had new albums out this year,” the statement reads.
In March, UNIFY Gathering announced it has 20 spots for bands in 2016, and confirmed the festival will take place on Saturday, 16th January and Sunday, 17th January at Tarwin Meadows in South Gippsland.
Next week will see early bird tickets are set to go on sale for people who purchased tickets to the 2015 edition of UNIFY Gathering, with more information set to hit corresponding email addresses shortly.
The price of a standard ticket has also increased this year, to $149 plus booking fee, but organisers say there are valid reasons for the jump.
“The lineup, the site layout and the amenities will be a considerable step up this time around, while still retaining everything you loved about Year One,” organisers say.
“Trust us, it’s going to be worth every cent for what we have programmed!”
UNIFY Gathering ran its inaugural event earlier this year, featuring the likes of The Amity Affliction, In Hearts Wake, Deez Nuts, Thy Art Is Murder, Break Even and Northlane.
