The brand new festival Good Things has just dropped its incredible line up and it is what it says it is – full of Good Things. Very, very good things. Jumping straight to the most exciting announcement: Punk rock legends The Offspring will be performing their iconic 1994 album ‘Smash’ in it’s entirety. We haven’t seen the boys since Warped brought them out in 2013.
Along with The Offspring, we get metal juggernauts Stone Sour who were here almost a year ago to the day, but that’s not a bad thing as these guys put on one of the best metal shows to date, manned with one of metals most legendary vocalists Corey Taylor – arguably the best metal frontman out there.
And finally, on their maiden voyage to Australia, Japanese metal outfit Baby Metal will joing the festival as well.
And let’s not forget the flood of amazing international bands not yet mentioned: All Time Low, Dropkick Murphys, Bullet For My Valentine, The Used, Dashboard Confessional (performing songs from ‘The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most’), Mayday Parade, La Dispute, Waterparks, The Wonder Years, Emmure and more.
In the Aussie corner, we have Northlane, Waax, Ecca Vandel, The Smith Street Band, Make Them Suffer and much more.
With Download so far only securing Sydney and Melbourne, this was exactly what Brisbane and Gold Coast fans needed to fill the hole that was once Soundwave. So get your wallets ready, cause lets be honest, none of us can miss this one.
Good Things Festival will take over Brisbane Showgrounds Sunday 9 December. Tickets available at OZTIX.
