Unify Gathering 2022 is here – heavy music heaven is back

Get your tents ready!

Want to lock in some great times with good friends and some of Australia’s best heavy music acts – UNIFY Gathering 2022 has you sorted.

Whether you’re new to the festival or you’ve been missing the annual pilgrimage out to Tarwin, next year’s UNIFY Gathering is sure to be a momentous occasion.

For those unfamiliar – close your eyes and imagine what heavy music heaven might look like. If yours includes being surrounded by native Australian bush, stunning hills, and the ocean just a hop and a skip away, then you’re in the right place.

UNIFY Gathering 2022 is set to return to Tarwin in South Gippsland from Thursday 20 until Sunday 23 January. Expect all the festivities you’ve come to love with a topnotch lineup, delicious food, carnival rides, and more all on the cards.

From promising up and comers to triple j mainstays; nostalgic singalongs, guitar legends and striking storytellers to unapologetic punk-rockers, poprock tunes and earthshattering breakdowns and thuds, UNIFY 2022 is delivering another stacked lineup.

Leading the way are Australian heavyweights and UNIFY Gathering mainstays The Amity Affliction alongside much loved rockers Violent Soho. They’ll be joined by a smorgasbord of homegrown heroes including first time UNIFY performances from the likes of Alpha Wolf, Teenage Joans, PLINI, BUGS, and Short Stack and return appearances from heavyweights such as Ocean Grove, Thornhill, Yours Truly and WAAX.

Next year will have a strict 7,000 capacity – which is less than the last four instalments of UNIFY – so be sure to secure your tickets early.

What are some top tips for securing tickets?

Make sure you have a My Ticketmaster account

Get the basics covered before tickets go on sale by logging in and checking your Ticketmaster account ahead of time. If you don’t have a Ticketmaster Account then make sure you sign up in advance – Ticketmaster.com.au.

Sign in ahead of time

Remember to triple check your passwords, delivery address, and billing information are all filled in correctly in advance, that way you’re not facing any last-minute account updates when trying to process your order.

There will be a ticket queue

We expect that tickets for UNIFY Gathering 2022 will be in high demand, and to make the process fair for everyone you may be placed in a queue. 

We recommend signing into your Ticketmaster account at least 10 minutes before tickets go on sale to save your spot and join the Pre-Queue waiting room.

smart queue

Once you get your spot in the queue, please do not refresh your browser as you will be pushed to the end of the line.

We will get you through the queue as quickly as possible, so please sit tight.

Keep an eye on the clock

There will be a time limit applied to all transactions as they’re progressed through the ticket purchasing stages. Remember to keep an eye on the timer on your screen and move through the processing pages as quickly as possible (this is even easier when you’ve completed the account set-up stage we mentioned above).

Don’t hit the refresh button

Stick to one window when you’re processing your ticket order and please don’t hit the refresh button. If you do that, you’ll likely end up losing your place in the queue, and as frustrating as it can be, patience is key when trying to buy tickets. 

Ticketmaster’s sophisticated systems are designed to manage and process ticket purchases as quickly as possible. The queuing system that appears on your screen is doing all the hard work for you and will place you at the front of the line as soon as possible.

Please note, if you see a ‘no tickets available’ message when attempting to purchase tickets, this means there are no tickets available within your search restrictions.

Remember: there are a lot of fans

We’re expecting this to be a very popular event. When a popular event goes on sale there are hundreds and sometimes thousands of customers simultaneously attempting to purchase tickets across all distribution channels. Tickets are sold as long as seats are available, and sometimes they go very quickly.

Be sure to follow the above tips to ensure you have the best chance of snapping up some tickets.
