UPDATE: The full 2018 UNIFY Gathering lineup has now been announced.
ORIGINAL STORY: Oh shiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet UNIFY Gathering has just unveiled two of the massive names on its 2018 lineup and GET PUMPED KONTS because it’s….
Speaking on triple J’s short.fast.loud tonight, Amity’s clean vocalist Ahren Stringer revealed that the post-hardcore kids would be celebrating their 15th anniversary as a band at UNIFY 2018 with an extra special headlining set.
The band return to headline the heavy bash after doing the honours at the inaugural event back in 2015.
Meanwhile, Parkway — who headlined UNIFY 2016 — will be celebrating the 10-year anniversary of their groundbreaking album Horizons at next year’s campout & playing a bunch of tunes of the LP that you haven’t heard live in yonkers.
Amity and Parkway join Polaris as your first three mystery dates to be unmasked so far on the “incredibly special” 2018 bill, which is dropping tomorrow in the AM, you won’t have to wait long for the rest of your musical matchups for next January.
It comes comes after an alleged leak of the 2018 UNIFY Gathering lineup was called out as “fake” by head honcho Luke Logemann this morning.
Logemann has also confirmed that Northlane are not on the 2018 UNIFY Gathering lineup, after they performed at the festival earlier this year. The only other act who we know might be on the lineup is Hellions, after a sneaky teaser video dropped last week containing one of their songs.
Earlier this week in a lengthy statement about gender diversity, UNIFY Gathering organisers revealed that five out of the 29 acts on the 2018 UNIFY lineup will contain female members.
The full 2018 UNIFY Gathering lineup is set to be announced at 10am AEST this Thursday, 31st August. Stay tuned to Music Feeds for the lineup as soon as it arrives.
