Tickets will go on sale August 9th, 2018.
UNIFY is a joint venture between UNIFIED Music Group, and THE HILLS ARE ALIVE GROUP. After four amazing festivals the team at UNIFY are super excited to be bringing you the fifth instalment.
Your Choice is a music industry supported campaign initiated to address the growing cultural issues around behaviour and lack of personal accountability within Australian venues and event spaces. These issues are not exclusive to the music industry, they’re prevalent within our society. However, as a community of festival promoters, venue owners, artists, promoters and managers we are banding together under the Your Choice banner to create change. The goal of Your Choice is to help influence a culture of positive behaviour through shared responsibility – as industry organisers and the patrons attending. To find out more about YOUR CHOICE visit here
UNIFY is held in a town called Tarwin Lower, which is in South Gippsland, about two hours South-East from Melbourne. The drive down is beautiful and extremely easy to find. The exact festival location will be released closer to the event dates.
The gates to UNIFY will open at 9am on Friday 11th January and close at 4pm Sunday 13th January.
A select group of punters will get to experience the campsite from 2pm Thursday afternoon through the purchase of an Early Access ticket or Complete Experience ticket.
Please check your junk mail.
If you purchased more than one ticket you will receive an order confirmation and each ‘E-Ticket’ will be emailed to the address you supplied at checkout. An email for each ticket you purchased that will have the PDF E-Ticket attached.
If you bought more than one ticket using the same email address, there is a chance the 2nd, 3rd, 4th …… ticket may have gone into your JUNK folder. Be sure to check your junk email folder if you only received one ticket.
UNIFY Gathering encourages carpooling! The more people in your car, the less impact this has on the festival as well as the environment. This year, we have partnered with Banana Bus to help you get to and from the festival safely. Book your spot on the bus HERE.
This is an addition that we have put in place to assist with regulating the amount of car traffic travelling to UNIFY. We want to encourage car-pooling or bus travel and minimise the festivals carbon footprint. Remember, if you arrive with 3 or more ticket holders in your vehicle, we will donate the cost of your pass to an onsite environmental initiative. #WINNING!
Car passes will be in the form of a unique ticket that will be scanned at the entry gate. This will then need to be placed in the windscreen as you make your way through to the event carpark. Make sure you have a print out of this ticket or have it online in your wallet or passbook. You will when you enter the event carpark.
PLEASE NOTE: Your car will NOT be allowed entry to the event car park without a car pass and you will be turned away.
If you have a ticket but cannot attend, find someone to purchase your ticket and email [email protected] to complete a name change. Name changes cost $20.00 and we require the first name, last name, DOB + Email for the new festival punter. Once complete, the original ticket will be voided, and a new ticket issued.
Name changes end on January 1, 2019.
Friday 12th – 2pm to 2am Sat morning
Saturday 13th – 8am to 2am Sun Morning
Sunday 14th – 8am to 2pm
Times may be subject to change.

Yes! There will be a viewing platform for those guests who require it.
Yes, UNIFY is a Camping Festival. Camping is free, and you have a couple of options when it comes to what you need to bring. If a more traditional camping experience is what you prefer, you can bring your tent, sleeping bag and all the rest and set up on site. Camping slots are not pre-booked or purchased. There is plenty of room though so once you arrive on site you can find a spot to set up your camp and you’ll be good to go.
You can move between the campground and the car-park during daylight hours ONLY (between 8am to 8pm). After sunset you must remain in the campground/arena areas. If visiting your vehicle, The car MUST stay stationary until the conclusion of the event. Anyone re-entering the gates will be thoroughly searched for prohibited items.

Make sure you bring plenty of cash, food, drinks, appropriate clothing and camping equipment for the entire event. With all the awesome music going on at UNIFY we’re confident you won’t want to leave anyway!
EXCEPTION: only those that have pre-registered with [email protected] and proven they have local accommodation (proof of address or accommodation booking confirmation) can leave the site after 8pm. See CAN I LEAVE ON FRIDAY/SATURDAY NIGHT? for more details on staying locally.

UNIFY will operate a digital currency for 2019, to ensure speed of service, increased security and ease of transactions at the bars, food vans and merch stalls.
Most importantly, there will be reduced bar lines, reduced time spent counting out coins to buy a beer and no danger of loosing your cash in the pit.
UNIFY is a ‘cashless’ festival. In other words, to buy food, merch and drinks at the event you’ll need to use PITCOIN as CASH WILL NOT be accepted by vendors.
Either top up online or with cash or card (bring cash to speed up your time in line!). The wristband you receive upon entry to UNIFY contains a chip, which can be read by the vendor’s scanning device, that deducts a set amount depending on what you purchase. They select the transaction on their device, tap your wristband against their device and BAM transaction is complete.
After each transaction, the vendor will show you the balance on your wristband. You can also ask any vendor or top up point and they can check your wristband for you.
Yes you can! There’s two ways you can refund unspent PITCOIN:
1. Make sure you keep your wristband or take a photo of the numbers on the band. Head to PITCOIN refund website (link to come). Simply enter your full name, email address, BSB, Account Number as well as the RFID and 4-6 digit serial number printed on the plastic chip on your wristband and hit complete! Your refund will be processed back into your bank account within 14 working days. Please note, online refunds under $5.00 are unable to be processed.
2. You can grab your refund in cash on the last day of UNIFY from our convenience store or any of our top up stations.
