One stage, a bunch of huge pop artists and no clashes
Similar to the name’s engagement of youthful vernacular, this festival has one of the poppiest, trappiest, SnapChattiest line-ups in the mix. FOMO boasts a single stage with an all-in party vibe sure to be heightened by the vast, swooping grounds of Parramatta Park. The pros are that you won’t miss a second of action as no acts clash and you will always have excellent sightlines, the cons are that you may have to stay put in the crowds without respite. It has turned attending a music festival into an act of endurance, but hey – that’s what your summer is for. Proving the youth are our future, this festival is donating a dollar from every ticket to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre and Heaps Decent.
The line-up is massive. Nicki Minaj takes a break from beefing with the rap world to headline with recent Kanye-collaborator Lil Pump, hip hop innovators Rae Sremmurd, and R’n’B and neo soul slashie Kali Uchis. Look out for the achingly internet sounds of Sophie and homegrown superstar Anna Lunoe. Mura Masa, San Holo, Cosha, Carmoouflage Rose, Just a Gent and Mimi also feature.
