ORIGINAL STORY: Victoria’s UNIFY Gathering heavy music festival has finally stopped the drip-feed and unveiled its 2019 lineup.
Next year’s edition of UNIFY will be headlined by Underoath, Karnivool and Taking Back Sunday, who’ll be performing their 2002 album Tell All Your Friends in full.
The 29-act lineup also features two reunions: Aussie metalcore outfit I Killed The Prom Queen, who’ll be reuniting their classic When Goodbye Means Forever… lineup; and Sydney hardcore outfit Hand Of Mercy, who will reunite exclusively for the festival.
Six international acts are locked in to perform exclusively at UNIFY next year: Underoath, While She Sleeps, Crossfaith, The Plot In You, Dream State and State Champs.
Of the Aussies, there’s also Trophy Eyes (the first act to be confirmed for the festival), In Hearts Wake, Ocean Grove, WAAX, Clowns, Pagan, Yours Truly and more.

Next year’s UNIFY event — the fifth instalment of the festival — will take place in a new location, five kilometres from its original home at Tarwin Lower in South Gippsland, between Friday, 11th and Sunday, 13th January.
Organisers are also giving punters the option of arriving a day early this year, which means they can set up camp on Thursday, 10th January.
