Time Out says

Let loose at the return of Festival X, from the teams behind Stereosonic and Falls

Start your hot girl summer with an EDM bonanza this November. Following its pre-pandemic debut in 2019, Festival X is finally returning in 2022 to kick off the party season with a pop, hip-hop and electronica-laden multi-stage event.

The one-day festival’s headliner will once again be Scottish DJ and singer Calvin Harris, who we hope will be busting out his huge party hits like ‘Summer’ and ‘I Feel So Close’. With a brand new show and a fifth album on the horizon later this year, he'll be sure to whip the hungry crowds into a hot-weather frenzy.

Punters will be just as eager (if not more so) to see Megan Thee Stallion take the stage, no doubt hoping for a Cardi-less rendition of 2020's boldest hit, 'WAP'. Joining her on the packed lineup is Chicago-based, Trap-N-B star Don Toliver and local Trance aficionado MaRLo, as well as Boys Noize, Green Velvet, Nina Kraviz, and heaps more. Check out the full lineup here.

Festival X kicks off in Melbourne on Saturday, November 26 at Flemington Racecourse, before heading to Gold Coast, Adelaide, Sydney and Perth. 

The Festival X tickets are on sale now.
