This That Is Returning for Its Second 2022 Fests Headlined by Earl Sweatshirt and Flight Facilities
After already hitting Newcastle and Brisbane to kick off autumn, the music fest is returning again this spring with both international and Australian acts.
June 27, 2022
Most music festivals have been lucky to host even one event over the past couple of years, thanks to the pandemic. Many are gearing up for their big returns — and first fests since 2019 — this winter, spring and summer, in fact. But when This That hits Newcastle and Brisbane in October and November, it'll mark its second festivals in both locations this year. That's huge as it is, and so is the just-dropped lineup.
Already spent a day dancing at This That in 2022? Get ready to do so once more. This That will make its return to the Sandstone Point Hotel in Queensland on Saturday, October 29, then head to Newcastle in New South Wales on Saturday, November 5 — and it'll do so with Earl Sweatshirt and Flight Facilities leading the bill.
The fest will also play host to What So Not in Brissie only, and to The Presets in NSW. And yes, the list goes on.
Also set to grace the fest's three stages: Vera Blue, Winston Surfshirt, DMA's, Chillinit, Skeggs, Hockey Dad, Jesswar and more.
Some of the acts on This That's 2022 2.0 bill already hit its stages earlier this year — The Presets played Sandstone Point then, but will do Newcastle now, for instance — not that anyone is complaining.
If you did already attend this year, you'll get a discount for backing it up, too, thanks to a 48-hour period for autumn This That attendees to buy tickets at the fest's first-release price.
