Flight Facilities, Earl Sweatshirt and more announced for upcoming This That festival

The This That festival lineup has arrived, returning to Queensland and New South Wales for the second time this year.

The traveling festival is set to take place at Sandstone Point on Saturday October 29, followed by the Newcastle leg on Saturday November 5.

It features Earl Sweatshirt and UPSAHL as the only international guests on the show, alongside a largely Australian lineup. This includes Flight Facilities, Alice Ivy, Hockey Dad, Jesswar, Skegss, Ruby Fields, Vera Blue and Winston Surfshirt, who will be participating in both events. What So Not will appear exclusively at Sandstone Point, while The Presets and DMA’S will perform at Newcastle only.

General tickets go on sale Friday, July 1, or you can pre-sale here.

The event has faced a number of reschedulings over the past two years, having moved its 2020 iteration to February 2021. Organizers unveiled a lineup that includes Hayden James, Dune Rats, Client Liaison, Jack River and San Cisco for the February iteration, but that was pushed back again due to coronavirus restrictions.

As the new dates of October and November 2021 approach, the organizers have again been forced to postpone the festival to February and March 2022.

“By moving the dates to February and March, this new schedule will hopefully allow for the safest and best opportunity to provide the best festival experience for everyone,” they wrote in a statement.

A number of new artists have been added to the lineup, including Polish Club, WAAX, Budjerah, Kobie Dee, YNG Martyr, Pacific Avenue and Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers, with the early 2022 iteration finally able to go ahead as planned. . It was the first time the Newcastle event had taken place since 2019, and the very first stop at Sandstone Point.
