Festival X returns in 2022 with dates in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and Gold Coast

Festival X returns for 2022 with dates in five cities

Following its massive inaugural tour in 2019, Festival X will expand to five different cities this summer – with dates in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and Gold Coast!

Inviting both local and international talent, set to play across multiple stages (and in some cases arenas), the multi-genre dance music festival will once again showcase a mix of hip hop, dance, pop, house, techno, trance and drum & bass.

Calvin Harris will be headlining the festival for the second time following the announcement of his fifth studio album, with other notable names including Green Velvet, John Summit, Nina Kraviz, Sub Focus, Nora En Pure, Cosmic Gate, Solardo, Franky Rizardo and Boys Noise.

Joining Harris at the top of the bill are American hip hop stars Megan Thee Stallion and Don Toliver.

Festival X 2022 dates:

  • Melbourne – Sat 26 Nov @ Flemington Racecourse.
  • Gold Coast – Sun 27 Nov @ Alabaster Sports Fields
  • Adelaide – Fri 02 Dec @ Bonython Park
  • Sydney – Sat 03 Dec @ Sydney Showground
  • Perth – Sun 04 Dec @ Burswood Park
