THIS THAT is officially back, serving up a stacked lineup of 28 jaw-dropping acts – and it’s only the first artist announcement.
Following past huge sell-out events, THIS THAT once again transforms two idyllic coastal locations into immersive multi-sensory experiences filled with world-class music and art. First up is Sandstone Point Hotel, QLD on Saturday 4 November before kick-ons in Newcastle, NSW on Saturday 11 November.
Leading the charge are ARIA Award Winning, platinum record selling alt-rock trailblazers Gang of Youths and megastar American singer, songwriter and producer Porter Robinson, headlining over two huge weekenders!
Gang Of Youths will be crossing oceans to be back home with us in Australia, delivering their iconic, anthemic sermon of alt-rock introspection. And fresh off a global tour which wrapped at Coachella, Porter Robinson will touch down to perform his trademark live show, bringing his audio/visual spectacular to THIS THAT as part of his ‘Nurture Live’ tour. Porter Robinson is an electronic music revolutionary, changing the landscape of electronic music with his first record Worlds and then again with his follow up album Nurture.
Princes of party Peking Duk will be setting the stage on fire with their larger than life, wild and sweat-soaked dance floor mayhem, and roll up, roll up if you love Aussie indie big hitters Hockey Dad, Alex Lahey, and Lola Scott. Get hot and heavy with Trophy Eyes and Dear Seattle and let your soul sour with Winston Surfshirt (NSW). Bars on bars will rain down from Sydney rap superstars Chillinit and Hooligan Hefs and Jesswar and Sophiya will deliver their innovative styles of hip-hop. Slumberjack, Set Mo, Godlands, Kinder and Alice Ivy will be spinning the latest and greatest dance floor two steppers.
See artists at the top of their game in a festival playground of immersive experiences spread across three stages. THIS stage will provide a larger than life, open air festival firework frenzy experience, THAT stage is a raging rave cave for you to fully cut loose to the crème de le crème of DJs and rappers and backdrops of captivating, ever evolving visuals, while the OTHER stage will mystify your senses through immersive art, sound and sensory installations.
Premium food and drink offerings will be available throughout the festival, with an option to upgrade for VIP access to an exclusive lounge, bar, and amenities with THIS THAT VIP packages, available at both locations. Don’t know how to get there? Don’t stress! Grab an inclusive travel and accomodation package along with your ticket purchase at checkout. There will also be THIS THAT bus transport to and from Sandstone Point, and you can head to the THIS THAT website ticketing page to discover where the festival’s Newcastle buses can pick you up and drop you off for a seamless travel experience.
This year’s THIS THAT is guaranteed to be a whole load of this, a whole load of that, and a serious amount of party.
Stay tuned for lineup announcement number two!
