2021 is looking up already.

It’s that time of year again when good things start to take form. The sun starts to re-emerge from its winter slumber, flowers start to blossom, we start counting down to Christmas with chocolate and the flood gates are opening on music festival announcements for 2021.

It’s been a wild ride for music festivals over the last nine months, there’s no doubt, especially with a slew of festivals having to cancel their 2020 edition – and that included the relative newbie that knocked our socks off for the last two years, Good Things Festival.

Boasting an explosive lineup of Aussie and international acts in both 2018 and 2019, Good Things filled multiple stages for non-stop days of loud, distorted guitars and pounding drumbeats.

Loud, heavy and just fucking awesome, our hearts sank when we realised we weren’t going to be moshing and participating in any walls of death this year.

But like we said, good things are starting to take form, and it looks like Flemington Racecourse will be filled with leather jackets, heavy boots, and fishnet stockings once more with the festival announcing their return for 2021.

Rockin’ up the east coast, the festival will hit Melbourne on Friday December 3, Sydney on Saturday December 4 and Brisbane on Sunday December 5 next year. In even better news, all the confirmed acts for this year’s cancelled event have signed on for 2021.

Despite being 12 months away, the next year is going to go awfully quick as we catch up on literally everything we missed this year – so consider this your official save the date.
