UNIFY Gathering 2018: Day One – The Ultimate Gallery

Traffic ahead…

It simply wouldn’t be a proper festival without waiting in huge traffic queues outside the site. Only difference out here is: if you jump out the car to stretch your legs or kill some time, you might get eaten by a snake.

Australia’s UNIFY Gathering – the country’s only heavy music camping event – has been one of the most desirable destinations for lovers of punk, metal, hardcore and rock for four years now. 

So, when they announced that in 2018 Parkway Drive and The Amity Affliction would be headlining the festival, along with a whole host of other Kerrang! favourites (hello Architects, Tonight Alive, Knocked Loose, Hellions, Stick To Your Guns et al), we simply had to jump on a plane and check it out.

While the Friday’s weather was reminiscent of Download in its very rainiest of weekends, the vibe of UNIFY couldn’t have been more awesome and welcoming. So, if you weren’t able to make it along this year, check out our gallery from the first day of the festival, and keep your eyes peeled on Kerrang.com for all the fun from day two, as well as interviews with some of our favourite acts on the line-up.
