Australia’s inaugural FestivalX just announced, with an amazing mix of artists including Armin van Buuren, Lil Pump and Alison Wonderland, spread over three locations in three days. The headliner sure to steal the show — or shows, rather — is Calvin Harris, as the famed DJ/producer hardly ever agrees to gigs outside of residencies.
These rare performances from Harris are sure to make a splash at FestivalX. Plus, music from Anna Lunoe, Murda Beatz, Steve Aoki and more. This first batch of 28 artists will set the bar for the new run of events headed up by Hardware and Onelove in collaboration with Live Nation.
The FestivalX brand is a touring festival concept with three dates already set. The event will hit Brisbane’s RNA Showgrounds on Nov. 29, Sydney Showgrounds on Nov. 30 and wrap up Dec. 1 at Melbourne Showgrounds. With a lineup like this, the three-day run has high expectations.
Frank Cotela, founder of Onelove, explains: “We hope to create an event that showcases entertainment on the scale we’re known internationally for, with massive artists, epic event production and a focus firmly on fun.”
Tickets for FestivalX go on sale August 1. More info here.
