Hunters and Collectors will headline the 10th edition of the Red Hot Summer Tour.
The group disbanded more than 20 years ago and rarely performs live together. They head a line-up that also features James Reyne, The Living End, The Angels, Baby Animals, Boom Crash Opera and Killing Heidi.
Bendigo will kick off the tour on January 4 at the Bendigo Racecourse. Tickets go on sale at 9am on August 8.
"The past 10 years have gone so fast and we have been so proud to see the Red Hot Summer Tour continue to grow each year," promoter Duane McDonald said.
Killing Heidi lead singer Ella Hooper said the band will celebrate their 20 years since the release of their debut album Reflector.
"It's perfect, there's all these round numbers for it. It's the tour's 10th anniversary, it will be our 20 year anniversary of Reflector, so it's all very serendipitous," she said.
"I'm using it as a motivation. I'm always eager to get on stage but there's nothing like the comparison of 20 years to make sure your'e still good."
Hooper said the tour was a success over 10 years because organisers made sure they brought good shows to regional areas.
"It's acknowledges that the rock fans are there and people will come out to these great line-ups that they choose very carefully to make sure there is something for everybody," she said.
"It's important to make sure beautiful cultural, different, exciting things exist in the country."
Killing Heidi formed in Violet Town in 1996 and gained national notice in 1999 after their debut single Weir.
They followed up with Mascara which reached number one across the country before their debut album Reflector went four-time platinum.
Hooper said it was a good era for music and that the energy of the band's music resonated with audiences at the time.
"Their genuine songs, we weren't trying to be too clever," she said.
"They're uplifting, Mascara is about some tricky stuff but there's a naive energy that people seemed to want.
"Life can be so cerebral and complicated, and Killing Heidi was a release. It was a bit primal. Primal pop, that's what I'll call it."
Hooper said she was glad people still wanted to play their and other band's albums 20 years later.
"If it was crap music, it wouldn't be having a second go around," she said.
"Not every body gets remembered or gets that emotional connection with fans that fill another field or stadium 20 years later.
"It's such a complement to the music and has given me confidence even 20 years later to say people do actually love this stuff.
"It made a mark, which is all you really want."
