ORIGINAL STORY: It looks like the 2019 UNIFY Gathering lineup is just over a month away, with organisers appearing to tease today that their “creative and awesome” new roster will be unveiled in August.
Unified Music Group’s Chief Creative Officer, Luke Logemann, tweeted today that the “Australian heavy community” will be “excited” on Thursday, 9th August.
While Unified Music Group wouldn’t confirm to Music Feeds that the date is when UNIFY’s lineup will be revealed, given the 2018 UNIFY lineup was also announced in August last year, we’re pretty certain the first wave of lineup information will arrive on 9th August.
Logemann’s tweet arrived after he told Music Feeds that UNIFY organisers “took risks” with their 2019 lineup, which appears like it could be more musically diverse than previous years.
Earlier this month, Logemann also announced that UNIFY Gathering 2019 will take place between Thursday, 10th and Sunday, 13th January.
UNIFY organisers began “first drafts” of their 2019 lineup in January this year, before the festival’s General Manager suggested that organisers are considering expanding the festival’s crowd capacity by thousands in 2019 and 2020, after it sets up camp at a new home early next year.
The 2018 UNIFY Gathering lineup featured the likes of Parkway Drive, Architects, The Amity Affliction and Tonight Alive, and we’ll find out who will perform next year on 9th August.
