This year’s program will be split between the Northern Territory, South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania, with a total of 19 bands set to perform on the run. Kicking off the stint will be 13 dates in the Northern Territory – including three in the town of Kalkarindji – with Bad//Dreems and Black Rock Band playing a show every day from Monday August 15 to Sunday 28.
South Australia’s leg will be split into two blocks of four shows, with Pist Idiots and Press Club playing both. Punk duo Mum Friends will round out the bill at the first four shows (running across September 15-18), while noise-rockers Placement will open up the other four (across September 22-25).
Victoria’s leg will also feature blocks of four dates, albeit with three unique line-ups spread across 12 shows. The first block, running over October 13-16, will sport performances from Horrorshow, Birdz and Lady Lash. The second block will feature Emma Donovan & The Pushbacks, Rat!Hammock and The Slingers, and run across October 20-23. Children Collide, Body Type and Suzi will steer the final block, with those gigs spanning October 27-30.
Rounding out this year’s slate will be six shows in Tasmania, all of which will host The Grogans and Teen Jesus And The Jean Teasers. This leg will be split into two blocks of three shows, with indietronica artist Denni opening the first (which will run across November 17-19) and rock outfit The Pretty Littles opening the second (November 24-26).
A full rundown of the program can be found below, with tickets for all 39 shows available here.
In addition to the shows, Guts Touring will host a series of 20 educational workshops, which a press release notes are “focussed on bringing students in regional and remote communities, and artists, together to co-create music and discuss the industry’s career pathways”. More details on those can be found here.
