We’re sitting here with our glitter paint and vintage ski jackets we’d prepped for Splendour, wistfully hoping that summer festival season will be fruitful enough to absolutely SEND IT. And I’m here to tell you it’s very well possible!!
THIS THAT Festival have just announced their juicy lineup for their February 2021 dates, and it’s got summer looking very shimmery.
Returning to Newcastle, NSW for its sixth year and introducing neighbouring Queensland to THIS THAT for the first time, the festival is set to be a massive celebration of the sorely missed Australian music and festival scene.
Their iconic THIS STAGE and THAT STAGE will be brimming with the nation’s favourite electronic, hip hop, pop and rock acts, featuring festival faithfuls and newcomers we’ve been dying to see live since their lockdown discovery.
Headliner Hayden James is set to bring his big beats and plethora of friends along to close out each night – no doubt GRAACE and possibly Nat Dunn will make an appearance in his set.
Good-time larrikins Dune Rats and The Chats (NSW only) are sure to bring absolute chaos to the stage, along with the theatrics of 80s nostalgia-driven Client Liaison and Confidence Man (NSW only).
Other drawcards on the NSW bill include WHAT SO NOT, ChillinIT and one-to-watch Sycco; while QLD will be treated to Haiku Hands, Allday and The Reubens.
Joining this already epic crew are Mallrat, Jack River, WAFIA and San Cisco. What a massive lineup for one day!
For those wanting to veer away from the main stages, THIS THAT offers ‘THE OTHER’, with its lineup soon to be announced.
In more outstanding news, the festival plans on backing it up with another round of THIS THAT in October/November next year – that’s right, two festivals in the one year to really make up on lost time.
We’ve been restless all year for a festival, and to say our bodies are ready is an understatement. LET’S GO TEAM.
