As the weather starts to heat up, the summer festival announcements start rolling in. If your timeline is overwhelmed by lineups, don’t stress. We’ve compiled a list of searing hot festivals to help you keep your cool over the next few months.

This That

This November, This That festival will be taking over Wickham Park in Newcastle. Unlike any other, this self-proclaimed ‘sensory overload’ reinvents the traditional festival experience. Hit up THIS stage to get your fix of pop, hip-hop and electronica before getting down at THAT stage, a bass-haven dedicated to DJs and Electronica. With a lineup as diverse as THIS THAT’s (Ali Barter, Camouflage Rose, DIDIRRI Peking Duck), this unique festival is definitely one not to miss. Get your tickets here!

Catch international icons LOGIC, Travis Scott and Carly Rae Jepson - as well as our favourite Kwame fresh off his explosive sets at Splendour in The Grass. Don’t miss out - secure your tix here.



Best Night Ever

Need to bridge that awkward gap between Christmas and New Years? Best Night Ever is your answer. This year the festival finds a new home at the intimate Miami Marketta on the Gold Coast. Catch your fave Aussie guitar-wielding rock legends including Ruby Fields and The Chatts - as well as a cheeky secret headliner yet to be announced.
