Danica Voll | 30 July 2019

Since the departure of Future Music Festival and Stereosonic, Brisbane has been seriously lacking in epic electronic music festival (let’s be honest!). Launching this November, just in time for an Aussie summer, Festival X is bringing its brand-new festival vibes to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. As the lovechild of three powerhouse festival producers including those behind Stereosonic (Onelove), Splendour in the Grass and Falls Festival (Live Nation) and Babylon (Hardware), you know this will be THE music festival to kick off the summer season.

The massive line-up includes plenty of big electronic names of international proportions headlined by the likes of Scottish DJ and producer Calvin Harris, king of trance Armin Van Buuren, DIM MAK caption Steve Aoki and Australian’s own Alison Wonderland. British DJ duo CamelPhat will also be making an appearance alongside the emotional techno soundscapes of Kölsch, Germany’s techno icon Pauk Kalkbrenner, legendary base house producer Tchami, and Australians trance icon MaRLo.

Hip hops will be sure to love the inclusion of US Rapper Lil Pump who is making his Australian debut, joined by Ohio’s rap legend Trippie Read. Los Angeles based Blueface is heading to Aussie’s shores with the talented Murda Beatz, Badrapper and Sophiegrophy also set to perform.

Festival X will be hitting the Brisbane Showgrounds on Friday November 29, Sydney Showgrounds on Saturday November 30 and Melbourne Showgrounds on Sunday December 1. You’ll be able to grab your tickets from 12pm, Thursday August 1 here.

About the author

Harbouring an unhealthy addiction of watching too many dog videos, Danica is a lover of the great outdoors. While her greatest skill may be the ability to rap ‘Fergalicious’ perfectly, her inability to remember her left and rights has proven to be her greatest downfall in life. When she’s not on the beach or hiking up another mountain, you can expect to find her trying to satisfy her Tim-Tam addiction with surprise, suprise… another packet of Tim-Tams. It seems like no-one told her they aren’t a suitable daily breakfast.
