At this stage, fans in Wayville (SA), Townsville (QLD) and Bunbury (WA) will be missing out.

“Like any festival, GTM takes many months of planning and at this current stage, taking into account varying state by state regulations, the tour has to look a little different in 2022,” reads a statement from organisers.

“For now, we are thrilled to be able to confidently deliver the festival that you know and love to three of our cherished six regions.”

“The GTM 2022 tour will kick off at its longest-standing home in Maitland NSW on Saturday 23 April. Then, it will hop over to EPIC in Canberra ACT on Sunday 24 April. The following weekend, it’s on to Bendigo VIC on Saturday 30 April.
