- UNIFY 2022 will host an all-Australian lineup!
- According to the UNIFY Gathering 2022 event page – if they get over 5000 people ‘going’ in the event they’ll leak one of the bands on the lineup – so quick, head to this link and say you’re coming!!!
- Going off the festival’s previously released teasers, bands that have songs featured in promo videos usually end up on the lineup (e.g. Thornhill was in this teaser and played the 2019 festival) so with that said could The Amity Affliction be playing judged on the above teaser? CONFIRMED
- This IS one of the bands on the lineup… Pridelands = P-Ride-Lan-dz!
- From UNFD‘s Luke Logemann
