19 bands, 7000 kilometres, 4 states, 36 shows, 20 workshops, and a bus named Tracy.
Guts Touring are thrilled to be returning in 2022, taking their series of workshops and gigs to regional
and remote communities right down the ‘guts’ of Australia. Kicking off in the Northern Territory in
August, Guts will be moving through South Australia in September and Victoria in October, before
finishing off in Tasmania in November.
But it is more than a series of ripper gigs; Guts is dedicated to representing a truly Australian music
industry - diverse in culture, gender, location and background. The tour creates opportunities for
regional and remote communities to experience and engage with live music, which means more than
ever after 2 years of limited opportunities due to the pandemic. Alongside the live shows comes a
series of workshops, focussed on bringing students in regional and remote communities, and artists,
together to co-create music and discuss the industry’s career pathways.
Guts Touring is all about beaut music, beaut places and beaut people. Started in 2016 by Jack ‘Parso’
Parsons and James ‘Roadtrain’ Clarke (with help from tour mascot, Hugo ‘Dingo’ Dean), Guts kicked
things off with the jam-packed ‘Up The Guts’ tour, a regional and remote live music and workshop
series taking the best in Aussie music on tour. Drawing inspiration from the Warumpi Band and
Midnight Oil’s iconic 1986 ‘Black Fella/White Fella’ tour through Central Australia, Guts wanted to
bring the plug-in-and-play ethos of the world renowned Aussie pub rock scene back to life. Parso &
the crew packed up and hit the road, moving from Hobart to Darwin; getting in amongst the bloody
awesome communities of Burnie, Bendigo, Whyalla, Coober Pedy and Tennant Creek.
In 2021, Guts Touring got back on the bus, touring the sell-out ‘Small Town Big Town’ tour. Legends
like Amyl and the Sniffers, Bad//Dreems and Birds took to the stage across regional Victoria,
showcasing the magic of good ol’ Australian live music. This year, Guts are back with another string of
ripper gigs and workshops - bringing the uniting power of music straight up the guts of Australia once
