This That Festival Line Up Announcement – Across The Ocean

This That Festival Line Up Announcement

POV: You’re reading the hottest festival announcement of 2022.

That’s right, THIS THAT is running it back! The lineup to Australia’s biggest and best double-weekender is here.

After sweeping up Sandstone Point and Newcastle in a storm of party starter acts, colossal headliners and top-notch party vibes earlier this year, THIS THAT is returning to both venues. THIS THAT is the biggest festival ever held at Sandstone Point Hotel and organisers are poised to do it all again. The event touches down at its sunny, water-side second home of Sandstone Point Hotel, QLD on Saturday 29 October before kick ons in Newcastle NSW on Saturday 5 November. Today, the team behind THIS THAT can finally unveil the colossal lineup of local and global talents who will be hitting the iconic THIS stage, THAT stage and the THE OTHER stage.

Good news, fam! Borders are open and international acts are back. This year, THIS THAT is rolling out the red carpet for none other than HipHop titan Earl Sweatshirt. Punters are warned to brace themselves for explosive beats and powerful bars as the USA rapper throws down classics and newbies from his new album SICK! Closing out both events, it’s wheels up for Flight Facilities! The dynamic duo will be cruising into THIS THAT to share their expansive electronic sounds and breathtaking light show. Keen to share the love around, festival organisers have pulled an almighty headliner swap. After closing THIS THAT Newcastle with a bang earlier this year, What So Not is returning home from the UK to exclusively treat Sandstone Point to his face-melting, earth shattering set. Meanwhile, past-Sandstone point headliners and Aussie electronic legends, The Presets, will be showing Newcastle how it’s done. Offering up just a ‘Regular Touch’ of rousing sing-alongs and heartfelt ballads is none other than Vera Blue. Craving a boogie? It’s a darn good thing that the genre-blending geniuses of Winston Surfshirt have shimmied their way on to the lineup. Exclusive to Newcastle is everyone’s favourite trio, and honourary Brits, DMA’S, while Lady Jesus herself – America’s almighty UPSAHL has the ‘Time of Her Life’ in both locations.

Bass? Check. Beats? Yep. Bars? Gottem. Clear the way for Aussie giants Chillinit and Hooligan Hefs as they dish up a healthy serving of their chaotic energy. Slumberjack, Set Mo, Godlandsand Alice Ivy, are also on hand to make sure the vibes are kept at an all time high.

What’s that sound? Skeggs, Hockey Dad, Dear Seattle and Trophy Eyes are on deck to show the world how us Aussies turn up. Get ‘Bad Like Riri’ with Jesswar, while Australian indie royalty Ruby Fields, Lola Scott and sister-duo Kinder are roll up to lay down some of the freshest sounds around. With heaps more artists to be announced including a ‘THIS stage’ opener hand-picked by the triple j Unearthed team, the final lineup is shaping up to be nothing short of extraordinary.

Looking for the perfect way to kick off the summer festival season? Why not make THIS THAT the ultimate weekend by locking down one of the VIP tickets on offer. Avoid any festival red-flags with stage-front viewing lounge, exclusive garden seating, lawn games, premium toilets, and gourmet eats. THIS THAT top tip: These tickets always sell out, so do not delay.

In true THIS THAT fashion, there’s plenty more to be announced. So keep those eyes peeled!
