Good Things unveils red hot festival lineup

Good times ahead at Good Things.

Good Things Festival has dropped its high-intensity lineup, bringing the finest in rock, punk and heavy all under one roof.

Hot off the heels of their massive slate of European shows are festival headliners Parkway Drive. Don’t expect any sideshows out of them, as Good Things will be home to the heavy metal outfit’s only gigs Down Under in 2019.

Alt-rockers Violent Soho were keen to announce their spot on the Good Things bill, proudly declaring “WE’RE BACK” after a brief hiatus. The band’s most recent LP, WACO, was released in 2016.

Dishing out the nostalgia this year will be pop-punk icons Simple Plan and homegrown duo The Veronicas. Rounding out the star-studded lineup are A Day To Remember, Bad Religion, Enter Shikari, Slowly Slowly and more.

Last year’s Good Things show in Melbourne fell on one of the hottest days of the year, and punters sure were feeling it. Fingers crossed it’s not the same this time round.
