ILLY Joins THIS THAT Festival 2021

To fill ‘the space between’ now and THIS THAT, the festival team have a bunch of exciting announcements. The first? The exciting addition of ARIA award-winning rapper Illy to the already stacked line up across both locations and a final release of tickets across both locations.


The rapper has been making waves recently with his triple j feature album, ‘The Space Between’ topping the ARIA charts. Also landing in the 2020 triple j Hottest 100 at #95 with Loose Ends ft. G Flip’, Illy’s popularity is as powerful on stage as it is off stage. He’s set to bring his A-game to both the Newcastle and Sandstone Point editions of the festival this October and November.


Staying true to THIS THAT’s respected brand of party starter lineups, the day will be packed to the brim with the nation’s favourite electronic, hip hop, pop and rock artists. Still making their way to both Sandstone Point (QLD) and Newcastle (NSW) are Hayden James, Crooked Colours, Dune Rats plus Mallrat and The Presets (QLD only). 


With the new dates locked in and ready to roll this October and November, there are more exciting announcements lurking and ready to be revealed in the lead-up. Previously sold out, today the team release a very limited allocation of additional tickets for Newcastle with Sandstone Point still on sale and almost at capacity as well.


Sadly ChillinIt and Enschway are no longer able to make the new dates announced last month, however the rest of the line up remains exactly the same with the addition of Illy and more to be announced.
