UPDATE MONDAY, MARCH 15: For the Love Melbourne has been postponed due to current gathering restrictions. It will now take place on Saturday, September 18. The below article has been updated to reflect this.

By this stage, there's every chance you've forgotten what a dance floor even looks like. But the folks at Untitled Group — the same minds behind Beyond the ValleyPitch Music & Arts and Ability Fest — are here to get you reacquainted. They've just revealed a huge all-Aussie lineup for the 2021 edition of their live music series For The Love, which is headed to Perth, Melbourne and the Gold Coast.

Across three dates, legendary acts including electronic duo Flight Facilities, dance floor darlings Cosmo's Midnight and Brisbane alt-pop sensation Mallrat will help you dust off the cobwebs and rediscover that groove. The party kicks off at Doug Jennings Park on the Gold Coast on Saturday, August 7 before continuing on to Perth's McCallum Park on Saturday, September 4 and Birrarung Marr in Melbourne on Saturday, September 18.

These three waterfront venues are set to be transformed into blissful dance destinations, heaving to live sounds from favourites like singer-songwriter Running Touch and brother-sister duo Lastlings, along with London Topaz, Boo Seeka, George Maple and Elizabeth Cambage. Punters will also have the opportunity to kick back in style in one of For The Love's VIP lounges, presented by Aussie streetwear label Nana Judy.

If an evening spent cutting shapes by the water sounds like a much-needed addition to your calendar, you can purchase tickets online for the Gold Coast, Melbourne and Perth editions of the festival.
