Festival X boasts a lineup of some of the largest names in electronic music. EDM stars like Alison Wonderland, Calvin Harris, Anna Lunoe, Steve Aoki, and Tchami stud the lineup. EDM's more veteran audience will appreciate the trance and house heavy performances by Armin van BuurenCosmic Gate, MK, and others. 

Festival X will take place from November 30th-December 1st. Each day takes place at the Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne Showground, respectively. Not all performers are playing in every city, so be sure to check out their list of artists for more information.
