ORIGINAL STORY: After UNIFY Gathering dropped some hints about what to expect from its 2019 festival earlier today, organisers have taken to Facebook to give punters another clue about an act that will be on next year’s lineup.
It’s a simple photo showing three emojis — a cloud, a sleeping face and a map of Japan.
Of course it’s sent the comment section into total disarray, with a lot of commenters theorising Japanese heavy metal band Crossfaith could be making the trip down under.
The 2019 UNIFY lineup is expected to be announced on Thursday, 9th August, but organisers have previously confirmed that a number of the acts listed on an “obviously fake” lineup poster are actually on the real lineup.
The festival is taking place between Thursday, 10th and Sunday, 13th January, with the exact details of its new location yet to be announced.
The 2018 UNIFY Gathering lineup featured the likes of Parkway Drive, Architects, The Amity Affliction, Polaris, Hands Like Houses, Make Them Suffer and Tonight Alive.
Stay tuned to Music Feeds for the 2019 lineup as soon as it arrives.
