Now this is massive… UNIFY Gathering have dropped their 2019 line-up and it's fronted by Underoath (exclusive Australian show), Taking Back Sunday performing 'Tell All Your Friends' in full and Aussie legends Karnivool. Drop mic indeed.
There are a host of other exclusive Australian-only appearances on the bill: While She Sleeps, Crossfaith, The Plot In You, Hand Of Mercy, Dream State and State Champs.
In all, 29 bands have been announced across 2 days for UNIFY Gathering which is back for its fifth instalment but this summer at a brand-new site at Tarwin Meadows, in the wonderfully green pastures of Tarwin Lower in South Gippsland, Victoria, where the festival has called home since the beginning.
There are plenty of Australian acts represented: Trophy Eyes, In Hearts Wake, Ocean Grove, Dream On Dreamer, Endless Heights, WAAX and Clowns.
Other 2019 additions include a 'veritable who's who' including Turnstile, Citizen, Harms Way, Stand Atlantic, Thornhill, Pagan, Drown This City, Gravemind, After Touch, Ocean Sleeper, Better Half and Yours Truly.
The fifth instalment of UNIFY will take place on the new site just five kilometres down the road from its birth place the Recreation Reserve and football field, in Tarwin Lower, South Gippsland, a creasy two-hour drive from Melbourne.
The new home of UNIFY is set across sprawling farm land with bush on one side and stunning views of the hills on the other. Surrounded by lush greenery, the festival site is only a 15-minute drive from the pristine blue ocean in neighbouring Venus Bay.
There’s a lot of exciting additions to UNIFY 19, including a new early access option to beat the crowds by camping onsite a day earlier. This year will see the roll out of pre-pitched camping options which includes pre-set up scout tents, bell tents and even canvas lodges - more details to come on those! Kartent will be back with their 100 per cent recyclable cardboard tents for two, for the eco conscious. For the first time ever, there will also be the option to bring a campervan onsite.
With more room on the site, UNIFY will increase its onsite services. 2019 will see the roll out of an improved entry system and larger campsite, complete with Unisex, Male and Female toilet options… and lots of them. There will also be increased community resources across the campsite (security, The Lighthouse, UNITY Crew) and a Corner Store for you to stock up on items that may have been forgotten.
Most importantly – there will be more days, more people, more music, more food, more fun!
