Dream State are:
CJ Gilpin – Vocals
Aled Evans – Guitar
Rhys Wilcox – Guitar

Jamie Lee – Drums
The bands’ growth has been consistent in an unbelievably fast pace since their birth in 2014. Their debut EP ‘Consequences’, released just a year after the band formed, was a clear representation of their strong sound and stand-out aura. It was with a new dynamic sound led by the powerful vocals of frontwoman CJ Gilpin, the band brought something fresh to the alternative music scene putting a twist on the familiar sound listeners had grown accustomed to. It was in 2017, right before their set at the ever-growing Reading Festival that the band were signed to the UNFD family, changing the game for the band who began to skyrocket.
Racking up over a million streams on their single White Lies, the first release from the band’s latest EP ‘Recovery’, the UK five-piece have taken the world by storm, building a powerful following around the globe – and it is clear to see why. The ‘Recovery’ EP quickly became widely loved. The effort the band put in to every song is undeniable, making the EP addictive and their music in high demand.
The band soon began playing sold-out shows across the world supporting iconic names such as: Ocean Grove, Babymetal, Man With A Mission, Don Broco, As It Is, Bury Tomorrow and more, and joining the lineups of iconic festivals such as Leeds, Download and Slam Dunk, eventually leading to their well-deserved win of the Kerrang Best British Breakthrough Award.
Dream States set will be exclusive to UNIFY, and it will be one for the ages as the band takes the stage for one of Australia’s biggest and most iconic heavy music festivals. Don’t miss your chance to see Dream State in 2019 – get tickets here.
