New Bloom Festival | Melbourne

Australia, prepare to enter the new era of alternative rock and punk with NEW BLOOM FEST, a brand-new touring festival set to launch in 2024. 
 
Turning the spotlight firmly on the freshest up-and-coming artists in the scene, NEW BLOOM FEST’s inaugural events next March will kick off with an unforgettable bang, with American rockers CITIZEN, post-hardcore heroes MOVEMENTS, L.A. emotive hard-hitters TOUCHE AMORE and punk powerhouse NO PRESSURE all lined up to rattle the collective roofs in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, alongside alternative rockers FLESHWATER and grunge shoegaze duo SOFTCULT both performing as part of their debut Australian appearances. Also joining the sweltering international line-up will be an army of stellar local artist’s in each city to showcase the incredible might of the modern alternative scene at home and beyond.
 
Wielding quiet ballads, distorted rock anthems and everything in between, American rockers CITIZEN are a band impossible to resist and even more difficult to forget. Straddling the realms of post hardcore, shoegaze and pop alongside guitar-driven rock’n’roll, CITIZEN most recently furthered their enduring appeal via their fifth album Calling The Dogs; the band’s first album as a full five piece, and a resounding rebirth overall. From playing as teenagers in local dive bars to selling out theatres and appearing at festivals around the world, CITIZEN are a must-hear and must-see act, back and bigger than ever before.
 
Orange County rockers MOVEMENTS weave an intimate beauty into their post hardcore-meets-alternative-rock creations, with their latest album RUCKUS! dexterously showcasing their signature tension-and-release style in a whole new way. Off the back of a whirlwind few years at MOVEMENTS HQ, with their 2020 album No Good Left to Give debuting at #3 on the Alternative charts and their streams doubling to over 200 million streams in the U.S alone, MOVEMENTS continue to evolve and excite - and their return down under will offer fans a chance to witness them in a whole new light.

A festival overflowing with exceptional fresh talent from the alternative and punk scene at home and abroad, come and join the first ever NEW BLOOM FEST in 2024 – this is an event not to be missed.
