Full tour details below.
Since 2015, UNIFY Gathering has been a staple of the annual heavy music calendar, taking place during seven of the past eight years. Each time, they’ve delivered a diverse roster of local and international acts to celebrate heavy music in Gippsland, Victoria.
In 2023, UNIFY will pivot toward a series of small club shows across five states, with each date featuring a different line-up from around the country including one international, American deathcore band Fit For An Autopsy.
The NSW, VIC and SA legs will resemble miniature festivals with 8-10 band line-ups. All five events will include pop-up stores, artist signings, and workshops before and after doors, with the aim to bring as much of UNIFY on the road as possible.
“When we made the decision to skip the 2023 gathering, we knew right away that we wanted to do something to fill the space left,” organisers Red Hill Entertainment said in a statement. “We’ve always been so grateful to all the people who make the annual pilgrimage to Gippsland from all over Australia, and sometimes the world. So this year we thought, why not take the show to the people and try to replicate the vibe, ethos and excitement of UNIFY on a different scale.
“UNIFY is obviously a music festival, but it’s also always been an opportunity to bring our heavy music loving community together to share our experiences and learn. We’re taking that ethos with us on the Off The Record road trip, working alongside APRA/AMCOS and Support Act to host some real-talk sessions on everything from song writing to mental health, and providing exclusive insight into some of the Off The Record artists’ own stories. You’ll also be able to hit up the travelling pop up merch shop, selling our exclusive UNIFY Off The Record merch and other hard-to-find goodies.”
