The folks at the Good Things Festival have finally unveiled this year’s bumper line-up that is set to descend on the east coast of Australia in December. The festival will be bringing a horde of new and iconic faves from Australia and around the globe together for nothing but a good time.
While we had our money on Mr Bungle headlining, it seems that won’t be the case with that honour going to American rock idols Fall Out Boy. From dominating your myspace era to becoming one of rock’s biggest-selling bands, Fall Out Boy have proven time and time again that their sweltering legacy is definitely not a phase. Armed with a career to date that spans billboard #1 debuts, gracing the cover of Rolling Stone, sold out stadium runs playing to over 1 million fans and multiple Grammy award nominations, a Fall Out Boy live experience is guaranteed to be explosive, enigmatic and packed full sentimental delights as well as fresh cuts.
One of the most influential acts of the nu-metal era, Limp Bizkit, are coming to keep the party rockin’ too. They’ve garnered three Grammy Award nominations alongside their timeless angst and genre-straddling prowess that brought rap metal to the masses. And from breaking stuff to whipping it, American new wave legends Devo will also take the Good Things Festival stages for their last-ever Australian appearances as part of The Farewell Tour Celebrating 50 Years.
Also locked and loaded to return down under, post-hardcore Grammy-nominated heroes I Prevail will be bringing the arena vibes, continuing their meteoric rise that has spanned their decade-long career. Welsh metal outfit Bullet For My Valentine will have you covered, with their explosive and infectious blend of heavy metal, metalcore and beyond set to collide into beautiful chaos across the east coast of Australia, while Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor gears up to keep the party firing on all cylinders, bringing his solo adventures to Australia.
Flying the flag for all things raucous, golden state staples Pennywise will flex their fiery flair, with the iconic California punk rockers heading our way yet again after a monstrous headline run in 2022. And also repping the punk at Good Things Festival this year will be none other than the ARIA award-winning stylings of thrash pop mainstays Spiderbait; three friends from a small country town who took the industry by storm decades ago, and have snagged nearly every accolade in existence on the Australian music scene.
