What’s on

Festival X

  • Music festivals

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.

Good Things Festival

  • Music festivals

After a two-year hiatus due to reasons we don’t have to name, one of Australia’s biggest alternative music festivals returns to Melbourne, gracing the Flemington Racecourse with its stellar lineup. Headlined by none other than one of the world’s most famous alternative bands Bring Me The Horizon, the lineup also includes American heavyweights Deftones, rough-and-tumble punk favourites NOFX, Japanese pop rockers One Ok Rock and American electronic music duo 3OH!3. Joining the killer international lineup are a selection of Aussie favourites, including Queensland metallers The Amity Affliction, the first live performance in 19 years from iconic band TISM, punk rockers Cosmic Psychos, and ARIA-nominated Kisschasy.  For the full lineup and to purchase tickets, head to the Good Things Festival website.
