The festival held its inaugural debut in 2017, and it housed some of the biggest and brightest names in electronic, house and hip-hop, including Alison Wonderland, Calvin Harris, Lil Pump and Steve Aoki.

This year, it will be heading to Melbourne, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Sydney and Perth in November and December for five massive days of music. The festival is the brainchild of Hardware + Onelove – creators of Stereosonic and touring giant Live Nation. Stereosonic’s final festival was back in 2016, and attendees of Festival X 2019 drew comparisons between the two events.

General tickets go on sale on Thursday 2nd June 2022.
