Festival X will bring some of the biggest dance and hip-hop acts to Australia, with events taking place in Melbourne, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Sydney, and Perth.

Calvin Harris and Megan Thee Stallion will be joined by Don Toliver, MaRlo and many more for the festival’s return to our shores. The festival marks Megan Thee Stallion’s first-ever performance in Australia.

The Australian festival offers some of the most well-known artists from various genres. There will be something for everyone with numerous stages set to be featured.

Electronic legend Calvin Harris will headline Festival X

Calvin Harris, who headlined Festival X in 2019, is returning. Then there's Megan Thee Stallion, Don Toliver, and other pop and hip-hop artists. MaRLo, Cosmic Gate, and KEY4050 are among the trance artists represented. Wilkinson and Sub Focus are slated to perform in Australia, and drum and bass fans are sure to like it.

Alison Wonderland, Calvin Harris, Lil Pump, and Steve Aoki were among the greatest and brightest names in electronic, house, and hip-hop during the festival's inaugural edition in 2017.

Over 100,000 people attended Festival X in 2019  and hosted some of the biggest names in electronic dance music including Armin van Buuren, MaRLo, Giuseppe Ottaviani Live 2.0, Cosmic Gate, Futurecode, Ruben de Ronde, Vini Vici, Calvin Harris, Alison Wonderland, Lil Pump, Trippie Redd, Steve Aoki, and many others.

In November and December, it will be heading to Melbourne, Gold Coast, Adelaide, Sydney, and Perth for five enormous days of music.

The festival is the brainchild of Hardware + Onelove, the producers of Stereosonic and Live Nation, the world's largest touring company. Stereosonic's final festival took place in 2016, and Festival X 2019 participants noted parallels between the two events.
