WHERE: Tarwin Meadows, Gippsland VIC
WHEN: Friday March 11th and Saturday 12th, 2022

For the first time in UNIFY’s eight-year history (notwithstanding, of course, the cancelled ‘21 edition), rain didn’t strike the ground once all weekend.

It wasn’t overbearingly hot, either – it was like the gods of weather had felt sympathy for us (a welcomed change from their usual spite), having gone two full years without a heavy music festival of this caliber, and as such offered us the optimal atmosphere for peak mosh brilliance.

Ellie Robinson
Editor-at-Large, Australian Guitar Magazine

Ellie Robinson is an Australian writer, editor and dog enthusiast with a keen ear for pop-rock and a keen tongue for actual Pop Rocks.

Her go-to guitar is a Fender Player Tele, which, controversially, she only picked up after she'd joined the team at Australian Guitar. Before then, Ellie was a keyboardist – thankfully, the AG crew helped her see the light…
