Bring Me The Horizon
One of the world’s most electrifying and successful rock bands, Bring Me The Horizon headline proceedings with Brit Award and Grammy nominations, multi-platinum selling releases and over one billion YouTube views in their wake since forming in the early 2000s, Bring Me The Horizon continue to push expectations and sonic boundaries, and their live performances are nothing short of show-stopping to say the least.
Meanwhile, they said it would never ever happen, but an Australian miracle will also take place at Good Things Festival – for their first live performances in 19 years, iconic and gold-selling larrikins TISM will be exclusively appearing onstage. Forget the tone-deaf empty platitudes, Good Things Festival has also brought American heavyweights Deftones to ramp up festivities.
Deftones and NOFX
Hailing from Sacramento, California, Deftones are undeniably one of the most innovative and enduring alternative metal acts of all time, and they’ll be in extremely good company alongside rough-and-tumble punk favourites NOFX this December as well. Pioneers of SoCal punk and nearly four decades into their careers, NOFX will perform their 1994 iconic album Punk In Drublic in full and all your favourites at every Good Things Festival 2022 appearance, with all the hooks and refined raucous energy primed to explode on Aussie stages.

Amity Affliction, One OK Rock, Gojira
Speaking of Aussie stages, a band no stranger to playing at home and abroad is none other than The Amity Affliction, with the Queensland metallers set to bring their melodic and majestic brand of metalcore to the masses. Wielding their latest release, 2021’s EP Somewhere Beyond the Blue, as well as a horde of old favourites, this is one astounding affliction you’ll be ecstatic to experience live in action.
The party will be in full swing when Japanese rockers One OK Rock take the stage, with the quartet’s dynamic blend of pop rock, post-hardcore and alternative rock set to simultaneously ignite some good vibes and dynamic singalongs. And fresh from releasing their chart-topping 2021 album Fortitude, French progressive metal behemoths Gojira are ready to unleash all the earth-shattering polyrhythms, blast beats and thought-provoking thematics fans have come to know and love on Australian soil.
Lacuna Coil, Jinjer, Electric Callboy, JXDN
The metal vibes keep coming with some delicious goth heaviness via Italian quintet Lacuna Coil, while noise firebrands and habitual party starters Fever 333 will be lending their voice to the celebrations, as will the crushingly brutal Ukrainian hell-raisers Jinjer. German metalcore shapeshifters Electric Callboy will be making their first ever trip down under for the occasion, with superstar start-up JXDN also set to chalk up his first-ever Australian performances.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper party without the inclusion of some other punk favourites, with appearances locked in from Swedish troublemakers Millencolin and Californian pop punk lords The Story So Far, as well as some triumphant sets from Norwegian punk rockers Blood Command and Florida alternative giants Sleeping With Sirens to ensure a blistering blowout of epic proportions.
The festivities continue, with American electronic music duo 3OH!3 and urban punk duo Nova Twins guaranteed to get you all fired up. And heavy metal icons Sabaton will arrive armed with their band new album The War To End All Wars, choosing Australia as one of the first to hear the new tunes live, while Soulfly will also fly the heavy metal flag, returning to their adoring down under fans after one of their longest periods away from Australia in their 30 year career.
Aussie punk flying high at Good Things
But it’s not just the internationals we’ll be celebrating on the Good Things Festival 2022 lineup this December, with an army of Aussie beloveds also ready to roll. Australian punk rock institution Cosmic Psychos, a band who can claim Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder as a mate and musical peer, will be storming the Good Things Festival stages. Fellow Aussie staples also set to appear include rock and electropop trio Regurgitator and emphatic ARIA-nominated rockers Kisschasy, as well as formidable artisan punk storytellers Chasing Ghosts.
And that’s still not all! Join some of Australia’s favourite alternative exports at Good Things Festival this year, from some melodically charged mayhem courtesy of Sydney metalcore outfit Polaris, to some lush modern heavy charm via Melbourne’s Thornhill – and some fiery, razor-sharp moments from everybody’s favourite screaming rap-rock-electro-pop mutants Redhook for good measure!
Good Things former lineups
It’s been a long wait for fans to revel in some of the best international and local acts from the lands of rock, metal, punk, emo and beyond. Organisers of the 2022 edition, following on from 2019’s triumphant event, say they’ve made good use of the time cultivating “an incredible line-up of acts that will make any alternative loving fan weak at the knees.”
For reference’s sake, in case you’re new to Good Things, the 2018 lineup was led by, The Offspring (Performing ‘Smash’ In Full), Stone Sour, All Time Low, Dropkick Murphys, Bullet For My Valentine and The Used among others. The 2022 edition of Good Things Festival will return to their single-day format at the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, followed by Sydney’s Centennial Park and Brisbane’s Showgrounds in the first week of December.
