Only 8 more sleeps until Good Things Festival will be here igniting the mosh pits along the east coast of Australia.
Headlined by one of the world’s most electrifying and successful rock bands BRING ME THE HORIZON, the stacked line-up also includes Australian iconic and gold-selling larrikins TISM performing for the first time in 19 years, American heavyweights DEFTONES, pioneers of SoCal punk NOFX will perform their 1994 iconic album ‘Punk In Drublic’ in full including all your favourites as well as THE AMITY AFFLICTION, GOJIRA and ONE OK ROCK to name a few.
JXDN and 3OH!3 are no longer able to perform due to circumstances beyond our control but in fantastic news we welcome OCEAN GROVE and TEENAGE JOANS to the line up.
Aussie oddballs OCEAN GROVE freely fuse rock, metal, grunge, hip-hop & Brit-pop influences, pioneering what can only be described as Oddworld Music. The eclectic trio hailing from Melbourne recently released their third LP Up In The Air Forever in April 2022 to critical acclaim and have since been on a global assault touring their new brand of Oddworld Music. Having just returned from their debut headline tour across the UK & Europe in October 2022 and off the back of their biggest headline shows in Australia to date, OCEAN GROVE are set to make 2023 a career-defining year with the promise of a lot more new music around the corner…
After taking out the triple j unearthed high crown in 2020, TEENAGE JOANS, the Adelaide two-piece have not slowed down, taking out #87 in the 2021 H100, releasing single ‘Something About Being Sixteen’ and playing two sold out co-headline shows with TOWNS in Brisbane and Melbourne. They have shared the stage with Violent Soho, Ruby Fields, The Hard Aches, Clowns, The Chats, Bugs, Amy Shark and Sly Withers and performed at Summer Sounds, Mountain Goat Valley Crawl, Yours & Owls, Laneway Festival 2019 as part of the Girls Rock! Showcase and were a highlight performance at A Day Of Clarity and Stonecutters Festival’s.
We recently welcomed these additional artists..
YOU AM I are one of the most successful and internationally admired Australian bands. Centered around the prolific songwriting skills of singer/guitarist Tim Rogers, their breakthrough came at the inaugural Lollapalooza-style Big Day Out concert in January 1993. With three number one albums, a handful of ARIA awards and 11 albums under their belts, YOU AM I cement themselves as one of Australia’s most esteemed bands.
For a lot of bands, chaos & insanity are used as colourfully descriptive words for their character; for Japan’s PALEDUSK, they’re somewhat of an understatement. The electronic-metalcore powerhouse leaves absolutely nothing behind as they carve a path that is truly one of a kind. Word has spread like wildfire about these young kids from the Japanese island of Kyushu and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down. See them before they become the next global sensation that everyone is talking about.
From their immersive sonic aesthetics to their high-octane live shows, there’s nobody quite like Melbourne cinema-core masterminds THE GLOOM IN THE CORNER. Recently adding to The Gloom Cinematic Universe with their blistering sophomore album Trinity, THE GLOOM IN THE CORNER are primed to whisk your breath away onstage with their sharp storytelling, unwavering melodics and nuanced, explosive heaviness. Prepare for a sonic spectacle for the ages this December.
Deathcore flag bearers TO THE GRAVE have been focussed on dominance since their inception and show no signs of slowing down. After their 2019 record Global Warning elevated them to global awareness, they have been set on a warpath across the world to bulldoze audiences with a visceral live experience and a confronting message that demands your attention. They’ll be appearing at the Melbourne and Brisbane events only.
THOSE WHO DREAM, an exciting Australian alternative rock duo are a multifaceted creative project of siblings Josh and Cooper Meyer. Their captivating energy and revealing lyrics has not only earned them the acclaim of NME, Pop Buzz, Rock Sound and Alternative Press; but more importantly, a cult-like following around the world.

Want some more Sum 41 in 2022? Along with joining The Offspring on the sold out national Australian tour this December, the Canadian punk rock juggernauts are thrilled to announce an intimate club show at Northcote Theatre in Melbourne on Tuesday 6 December.
Hitting Australia next month alongside the equally formidable punk lords The Offspring, Sum 41 will treat Melbourne fans to a special headline show while they’re down under, with Adelaide duo Teenage Joans and Melbourne alt-rockers Terra set to raise the roof at the Northcote alongside the Ontario icons.
Having sold over 15 million records worldwide and scoring a Grammy Award nomination, two Juno Awards, a Kerrang! Award and multiple Alternative Press Awards in their storied career, Sum 41 are undeniably one of the most prolific and hard-working live acts. From the ongoing endurance of their breakout singles Fat Lip, In Too Deep and Motivation to their reputation for performing (pre-COVID) hundreds of times per year, it’s little wonder Sum 41 have been routinely hailed as one of Canada’s most successful and exciting exports; and absence has only made the heart grow fonder, with the band bringing their bigger and better than ever before live prowess down under to close out 2022.
Also hailing back to high school days, Adelaide two-piece Teenage Joans took out the triple j Unearthed High crown back in 2020, with the duo going on to release a continuous flow of beloved tunes, appear onstage at festivals including Summer Sounds, Mountain Goat Valley Crawl and Yours & Owls Festival, while also touring alongside the likes of Violent Soho, Ruby Fields, The Hard Aches, Clowns and many others.
Beginning life in high school before forays into busking and YouTube covers, a pop rock cover of Vanessa Carlton’s A Thousand Miles cemented the ongoing and resounding adoration for Melbourne five-piece Terra. Since then, the group have gone on to showcase their fresh and immersive take on the alternative and pop-rock realms, with their 2022 EP Reverie firmly flexing the band’s sonic diversity and sharpened songwriting chops.

Fearlessly leading the pack are California metalcore heroes The Ghost Inside armed with their blistering self-titled fifth album released in 2020. Expect an absolute sonic KO from these LA lords when they take the stage. Also joining in on the action is Florida rock staples Underoath who will bring their brand-new album Voyeurist along for the ride, while pop rock gets set to entirely level up in the hands of acclaimed genre-chameleon PVRIS.
Hard rock and gleeful horror will collide when melodic heavies Ice Nine Kills start their engines, while some of Australia’s finest alternative acts will bring all of the riffs and riotous combos to proceedings, from deathcore icons Make Them Suffer to odd world aficionados Ocean Grove, Brisbane’s rock juggernauts WAAX, Adelaide indie sensations Teenage Joans and punchy pop-punk prodigies Yours Truly.
Also wielding some extra international glitz and grit, The Wonder Years will bring some searing feels alongside some mallgoth goodness courtesy of carolesdaughter, and punked-up bliss from Static Dress. And prepare to unlock some extra heavy Aussie spice via Saviour and To The Grave.
