After recently announcing their rescheduled 2021 August dates, Melbourne’s annual winter celebration of music in the west, West Set, is excited to reveal their final 2021 performer lineup. Taking place from Thursday 19 - Sunday 29 August, West Set invites people to step out of their homes and into the warm, inviting spaces of some of the inner west’s most beloved venues. Footscray’s unique venue density makes it the perfect location to host the festival, which aims to reinvigorate local businesses in the west through the transformative and regenerative magic of live music.
Keeping previously revealed festival headliner Angie McMahon (solo) on the list for one of their only ticketed shows, West Set is thrilled to welcome another massive name to the bill with Hayley Mary (solo) who will round out the festival’s celebrations for a huge Closing Night show at Kindred Studios. Tickets are available now via the West Set website for Hayley Mary’s solo show, with Angie McMahon’s show already SOLD OUT.
All other West Set shows are FREE to attend, however event registrationsare essential via Eventbrite.
Joining Hayley Mary on the new additions list will be beloved dream-pop artist Thibault, supporting Black Cab at Kindred Studios, Maisie Pearle who will join the Love Shack Studios showcase at Hotel Westwood, and Lil Groom joining the Victoria University Showcase in the Kindred Bandroom. Finally, participating venue Pride of Our Footscray will host a whole new line-up in a delightful evening with Gabriella Cohen w/ Pop Filter + DJ Annaliese Redlich, and West Set artists Kee’ahn, Allara and HipHopHoe will take over Hotel Westwood for an all female, First Nations, POC and Queer inclusive free event on Friday 27 Aug.
“I am very excited to be joining some amazing performers and songwriters on the West Set Festival line up. I love winter and I love tunes, so this is really going to be my cup of tea ;) Thank you, Maribyrnong City Council for having me.” - Hayley Mary
Previously announced acts June Jones, Tender Buttons, Valanga Khoza Duo, Merpire, Emily Lubitz, Way Shit, DJ Kyaanz, Meraki Minds and Peter Lawler (Pumpy’s Trivia) unfortunately will no longer be performing, and all events at the Victoria Hotel will sadly no longer go ahead as part of the festival. All other events announced at participating venues Baby Snakes, Hotel Westwood, Counterweight Vinyl, Kindred Studios, Littlefoot, Sloth Bar, Pride of Our Footscray, Corner 90, Bluestone Church, Small French Bar, Jambo and The Cheeky Pint will go ahead, with only slight changes to the festival programming.

It’s another crushing blow but due to the Covid-19 extended lockdown in Victoria and current density restrictions for outdoor concerts we have been left with no choice but to reschedule the Melbourne leg of Full Tilt which was to take place on Saturday 3 July at Coburg Velodrome.
We are thrilled to announce that almost all the artists originally announced will be able to make the new date. We would like to thank all fans for your support and understanding during these difficult times and we appreciate your patience through the uncertainty of the past few weeks. Thy Art Is Murder are not available for the new date but we are stoked to announce Tasmanian Death metal overlords Psycroptic are stepping up to fill the void! Can't wait to see you in the pit!
The new rescheduled date is Saturday 23 October at Reunion Park, Burnley. The brand new venue for Full Tilt will be under massive Big Tops providing an incredible experience for fans. All tickets remain valid for the new date and venue and a warning for fans there are under 100 tickets left to sell! For fans travelling from other cities and can’t make the new date, we are happy to transfer your Melbourne ticket to any Full Tilt city of your choice.

It is with a heavy heart that Australia’s favourite alternative music festival, Good Things Festival won’t be rockin’ up the East Coast this year.
To our Good Things family, we know you love your mosh pits sweaty, your t-shirts black and the live shows spectacular. We know Parkway Drive delivered this in spades as our headliner last year, but just wait to see what we have in store for you next year! We had been working tirelessly on the 2020 line-up for over a year and we are thrilled to announce that all our confirmed acts for this year have signed on for 2021.
We have built Good Things into a day that is looked forward to by alternative music lovers across the Country.
We cannot wait to deliver another incredible event for you all next year, so save the date as we reveal the dates and venues for Good Things Festival. So, in that spirit we say Frick Off to 2020 and bring on 2021!
GOOD THINGS FESTIVAL 2021
DATES & VENUES:
FRIDAY 3 DECEMBER - MELBOURNE, FLEMINGTON RACECOURSE
SATURDAY 4 DECEMBER – SYDNEY, CENTENNIAL PARK

You won't be disappointed as Good Things are coming. To be the first to hear about the line-up and to access early bird pre sales head to the Good Things website.
The Under the Southern Stars spectacular concert series featuring Cheap Trick, Bush and Stone Temple Pilots has regrettably and unfortunately been postponed. Again.
We must protect our patrons, our artists and our crews.
Given the disappointingly slow roll-out of the vaccine by the Government, there is no confidence that we can keep all safe and proceed as planned at our festivals this May. The continuing mismanagement of the Covid-19 situation at all levels of government has led to numerous inconsistencies and on-going broken promises by officials that ultimately affect the safety of our patrons, artists and our crews, both domestic and international. So much so that the situation presents too much to risk to go forward with the dates as planned at the end of April and into May 2021.
The very recent eleventh hour cancellation of Byron Bay Bluesfest by the NSW government on the eve of the landmark festivals start date over Easter was an incredibly disheartening display of what could possibly happen to our patrons, artists and crews - being left stranded high and dry only moments before one of our events is set to kick off. We wish to protect all, and avoid a situation such as this.
To keep all involved as safe as we can and limit the possibility of getting stuck in the middle of further snap lockdowns, border closures and other knee-jerk reactions, we have to move Under The Southern Stars to a time that gives the series its best chance of running smoothly, as planned and ultimately allowing for the best experience possible to all ticket holders.
This is not a decision that we have taken lightly, but the safety of all is our motivation.
Under The Southern Stars promoter, Andrew McManus has issued the following statement.
‘We ask you all to continue to believe in us. We must protect our artists and patrons. We get it ... how many times can the Australian system force another postponement? So we are making the hard decision to reschedule Under The Southern Stars to the first quarter of 2022 and ask that all our valued supporters hold on to their tickets and in return we will be announcing some truly exciting additions to the line-up and festival circuit!
We sincerely apologise for the situation and ask once again for our loyal patrons to #keepyourticket and stay tuned. Not only for new dates, but we are planning on making Under The Southern Stars bigger and better. It will absolutely be worth the wait.
A full announcement including the rescheduled dates, additions to the line-up and more will be shared in the coming weeks.
