Central Australia’s biggest live and electronic music festival Wide Open Space has just added a bunch of great names to an already-overflowing lineup, lead by the really exciting addition of one of our favourite bands in the country, Melbourne’s future-soul legends Hiatus Kaiyote.

They’ll be heading into the wilderness of Central Australia for a weekend festival getaway, joined by some other big names in New Zealand loop genius Reuben Stone, Monkey Marc with Vida Sunshyne, and Melbourne electronic icon JPS (The Operatives).

They join the likes of already-announced acts including J:Kenzo, Plutonic Lab, Mojo Juju, Average Rap Band, and This Way at the festival, which will all go down near the Northern Territory hub of Alice Springs from April 28th to the 30th.

A bit strapped for cash? Well, there’s good news, as the festival is running a competition that lets you win a festival pass, transport and a return ticket to Alice Springs, as well as a merch pack and the role of official festival photo blogger for the duration.

You can find out more about how to enter here, and check out the full lineup below. If you could use a remote getaway and wild festival in the one weekend, tickets are on sale now.
