UNIFY unites heavy music fans

FOR the third year in a row UNIFY, a self-described gathering of heavy music, has blown away festival-goers with its amazing line-up and unique atmosphere.

Playing for a sold-out crowd of 7000, the festival had its biggest line up including performances from headlining acts Alexisonfire, Violent Soho, and Northlane.

Starting on the rainy Friday, January 13 at the recreation reserve in Tarwin Lower, the weather did not dampen the spirits of organisers or music fans.

Headliner and multi award winners Alexisonfire from Canada put together a special performance for their first Australian appearance since their 10th anniversary concert in 2012.

20 Australian acts played over the three day camping festival, including performances from recent hit artists Thy Art Is Murder and Luca Brasi.

Legends of the genre House Vs Hurricane and The Getaway Plan were also present and gave fans a taste of how heavy music has progressed over the years.

The festival takes pride in showcasing South Gippsland’s natural surroundings and punters relished the open and welcoming environment that Tarwin Meadows provided.

For 2017 UNIFY music and camping festival kicked off early Friday afternoon at 2pm and ran right through the weekend with great bands keeping fans happy until it was time to leave at 1pm on Sunday.

The event is community driven and targeted towards the punk, hardcore, and metal music world to showcase the quality and diversity of heavy music culture.

In 2015, UNIFY famously sold out its 3000 ticket allocation in just three hours, while its second year sold out all 5000 well before the event kicked off.

With this year’s recent success and with more amazing memories in the minds of the artists and fans, the festival shows no signs of slowing down.

Job well done: all the event staff of Tarwin Lower’s UNIFY festival, from volunteers to event organisers, celebrated another successful year of the heavy music event that finished last Sunday.
