Good Nights, Bad//Dreems for STBS


Regional areas are usually the first to get scrapped from the tour schedule, but that wrong is being righted as we speak in country Victoria.

Thanks to STBS (formerly known as Small Town Big Sound), some of Australia’s favourite bands have been dropping by local pubs and venues for a truly intimate touring festival. The legends from Bad//Dreems have just come off their leg of the tour, soaking in the joys of visits to small-town footy matches, high schools, family homes, and local watering holes on their trip across the state.

If you’re in regional VIC and desperate to catch acts like Bad//Dreems (we say ‘like’ because you’ve sadly missed those guys, but you can still grab tix to Amyl and the Sniffers, Camp Cope, Alice Skye and more) in your hometown, check out the dates below and get yourself tickets here.
