New Years has become one of the busiest times for festivals in Australia. From multiple day events like Falls Festival to jam-packed single day festivals like Field Day or NYE In The Park, there are a bunch of options for punters to bring in the new year with their favourite artists.

With so many festivals happening at once, it’s no surprise that it’s a pretty busy time for artists as well. Here’s a few of the artists set to have a non-stop New Year’s performing around Australia.

Hayden James


This Aussie artist has had a massive year, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down as it comes to an end. Across three days Hayden James will be performing four shows across four different states including two shows on New Years Eve in Brisbane and Sydney. He’ll close out his year with a massive headlining spot at NYE In The Park.



PNAU will be bringing their infectious dance hits to fans across Australia over the New Year period. With sets at Lost Paradise, Beyond The Valley and Origin Fields locked in, the group won’t have too much time to rest before 2019.

The Presets


These Aussie dance veterans are set to pull huge crowds at Sydney’s NYE In The Park and The First New Year’s Day in Melbourne in just 24 hours over New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

This British-Sri Lankan artist hasn’t visited Australia in a few years but she’s making up for it with a jam packed festival tour locked in for the end of the year. Catch her at Origin Fields, Lost Paradise, and Beyond The Valley for what may be her final tour of our country.
