To our Good Things family, we know you love your mosh pits sweaty, your t-shirts black and the live shows spectacular. We know Parkway Drive delivered this in spades as our headliner last year, but just wait to see what we have in store for you next year! We had been working tirelessly on the 2020 line-up for over a year and we are thrilled to announce that all our confirmed acts for this year have signed on for 2021.
We have built Good Things into a day that is looked forward to by alternative music lovers across the Country.
We cannot wait to deliver another incredible event for you all next year, so save the date as we reveal the dates and venues for Good Things Festival. So, in that spirit we say Frick Off to 2020 and bring on 2021!

Under The Southern Stars Postponed To 2022
The Under the Southern Stars spectacular concert series featuring Cheap Trick, Bush and Stone Temple Pilots has regrettably and unfortunately been postponed. Again.
We must protect our patrons, our artists and our crews.
Given the disappointingly slow roll-out of the vaccine by the Government, there is no confidence that we can keep all safe and proceed as planned at our festivals this May. The continuing mismanagement of the Covid-19 situation at all levels of government has led to numerous inconsistencies and on-going broken promises by officials that ultimately affect the safety of our patrons, artists and our crews, both domestic and international. So much so that the situation presents too much to risk to go forward with the dates as planned at the end of April and into May 2021.
The very recent eleventh hour cancellation of Byron Bay Bluesfest by the NSW government on the eve of the landmark festivals start date over Easter was an incredibly disheartening display of what could possibly happen to our patrons, artists and crews – being left stranded high and dry only moments before one of our events is set to kick off. We wish to protect all, and avoid a situation such as this.
To keep all involved as safe as we can and limit the possibility of getting stuck in the middle of further snap lockdowns, border closures and other knee-jerk reactions, we have to move Under The Southern Stars to a time that gives the series its best chance of running smoothly, as planned and ultimately allowing for the best experience possible to all ticket holders.
This is not a decision that we have taken lightly, but the safety of all is our motivation.
Under The Southern Stars promoter, Andrew McManus has issued the following statement.
‘We ask you all to continue to believe in us. We must protect our artists and patrons. We get it … how many times can the Australian system force another postponement? So we are making the hard decision to reschedule Under The Southern Stars to the first quarter of 2022 and ask that all our valued supporters hold on to their tickets and in return we will be announcing some truly exciting additions to the line-up and festival circuit!
We sincerely apologise for the situation and ask once again for our loyal patrons to #keepyourticket and stay tuned. Not only for new dates, but we are planning on making Under The Southern Stars bigger and better. It will absolutely be worth the wait.
A full announcement including the rescheduled dates, additions to the line-up and more will be shared in the coming weeks.
All tickets already purchased will be valid for new shows when they are announced.

Keith Urban Announces Birds Of Tokyo As Special Guest On ‘The Speed Of Now World Tour 2021’
Four time Grammy and ARIA award winning global superstar, Keith Urban has today announced celebrated Australian rock band, Birds of Tokyo as the special guest on his ‘THE SPEED OF NOW WORLD TOUR 2021,’ which opens on December 1st in Newcastle. These are Urban’s first shows in Australia in more than two years, his first in Perth since 2014 and the first stops of his ‘THE SPEED OF NOW WORLD TOUR’. It also includes shows in Sydney, Wollongong, Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Please visit keithurban.com for ticketing information.
Urban’s live shows are legendary, as unpredictable as they are explosive and with the addition of Birds of Tokyo, ‘THE SPEED OF NOW WORLD TOUR 2021’ is shaping up to be one of the year’s most anticipated tours. Not only will the tour feature all new state-of-the-art production, it will debut brand new music from Urban’s #1 album “THE SPEED OF NOW Part 1,” which tomorrow will see the debut of its latest single and music video for “Out The Cage,” featuring Breland and the funk/pop icon Nile Rodgers.
Across the last two years, ARIA award winning Birds of Tokyo have enjoyed multi-platinum album sales and a run of hit singles; the radio smash “The Greatest Mistakes” plus the double platinum certified single “Good Lord”, glorious anthem “Unbreakable” and the celebratory “Two Of Us”. These songs formed the basis of their 2020 album “Human Design”, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA Album Chart.
Early 2021 saw Birds of Tokyo play a handful of special concerts with three of Australia’s most prestigious Symphony Orchestras, further cementing their reputation as one of Australia’s finest live acts.

Plini Announces Impulse Voices Australian Tour With Special Guest Stephen Taranto
This July, Sydney guitar-wizard PLINI is set to return to the stage to celebrate the release of his latest album, Impulse Voices. After a year of show postponements and cancellations, PLINI and his band of musical superheroes (Chris Allison, Jake Howsam Lowe and Simon Grove) are thrilled to reunite on stage, performing new songs, old songs and all the notes in between.
“It was definitely a little strange releasing a new album without being able to celebrate it with live shows, but being able to announce these three (and hopefully more soon) has me and my band over the moon! Going to be practising like crazy, putting together a new setlist… I’m even a little excited just to coil cables after the shows. See you all soon!” says PLINI.
To ensure a truly memorable evening, all three shows of this east coast run will be supported by the inimitable STEPHEN TARANTO and his band, playing music from his critically-acclaimed EP Permanence for the first time ever.
PLINI and STEPHEN will also host a music masterclass / Q&A session before each show – an opportunity to ask about their approaches to playing, writing, creativity, music business and more.
PLINI’s last Australian tour sold out weeks in advance, so grab your tickets now!
