Good Things Festival upgrade to a massive new Melbourne venue

Following much anticipation, Good Things festival announced an absolutely mammoth lineup of some of the best local and international talent in the scene.

Last month, cryptic hints of the brand spanking new Aussie festival Good Things pretty much broke the internet. Following the announcement of the mysterious new punk, rock and metal festival, they dropped a bloody massive lineup.

Obviously, everyone went nuts after the lineup announcement, and tickets were selling pretty fast. According to Good Things Festival promoter Chris O’Brien, organisers had to take measures to ensure that no one missed out on this soon to be iconic festival.


To accommodate the masses, Good Things announced a bigger and better Melbourne venue, the Flemington Racecourse.

It was apparent the first day we went on sale that tickets for the Melbourne show were flying out the gate. With so many bucket list moments on the Festival, we simply had to make the decision to move to a larger venue to accommodate everyone.”

“The Offspring will never perform ‘Smash’ plus a greatest hits set again in Australia so to not allow fans that opportunity along with getting to witness BABYMETAL’s incredible live show with full production for the first time was simply not an option.”

Touring their first show since the Aussie Warped tour in 2013, The Offspring will be returning to the country to honour the 25th birthday of their 1994 album Smash.

Other killer acts forefronting the Good Things festival will be Japanese Kawaii metal band BABYMETAL, as well as Stone Sour. Local faves WAAX and The Smith Street Band will also be gracing the stage.
