THIS THAT announces epic 2021 lineup to spice up your summer
As the grips of the Coronavirus ease, it seems we’re back in business with THIS THAT 2021 ready to thrust you into the mosh with some of your favourite artists here to save the day. So grab your drinks, a bunch of friends and get your outfits ready, because THIS THAT festival is gearing up to kick off 2021 with a bang.
Returning to Wickham Park in Newcastle on Saturday 20th February for its sixth year, and arriving in Sandstone Point Hotel in Queensland on Saturday 13th February for the first time this summer, THIS THAT festival has announced an epic all Australian lineup that will showcase some of the country’s best and brightest.
2021 is looking like a head-spinning, fist-pumping, chest-pounding year with an expansive lineup ready to thrust THIS THAT into our sights. From dance sensation Hayden James, electronic dynamos Crooked Colours, funk extroardinares Client Liaison, indie-pop royalty Mallrat, Jack River, and San Cisco, queens WAFIA and Kota Banks, and of course, hype builders Badrapper VS Luude, Enshway and Sippy, this festival is looking hot to touch with an absolutely spicy lineup.
The festival tour will also feature some exclusive performances from some of Australia’s leading music artists. Performing in Newcastle only is electronic heavyweight What So Not and Confidence Man, The Chats, ChillinIT and Sycco. Exclusive to Queensland will be electronic royalty The Presets as well as The Rubens, Allday and Haiku Hands.
For those looking to venture away from the main stage into a magical enclave full of wonder and surprise, the festival will also be releasing THIS THAT’s ‘THE OTHER’ lineup.
To ensure the continuation of THIS THAT festival this summer, organisers are working with all levels of Government to make sure the February event can happen as planned in a COVID-19 world. Last week the festival released a COVID-19 ticketing plan that gives information on how ticketholders will be affected in the event of capacity restrictions and/or postponement.
If this epic lineup tickles your fancy, pre-sale opens tomorrow for members (apply here), and general sale will occur Thursday 12 November from 9 am local time.
So get your crew ready and brace yourself, for THIS THAT 2021 is going to be heated!
