Imagine our surprise when in our inbox this morning there was an email from the Hardware and Onelove. These names should be pretty familiar to you, as they’re the ones that were behind Australia’s biggest ever EDM festival, we’re talking Stereosonic.

While they may not technically be bringing back Stereosonic, they’re moving ahead with a new festival that they’ve said will showcase ‘Hip-hop, EDM and electronica’. FestivalX is set to happen across the east coast of Australia (Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne) and Auckland.

While a lineup hasn’t been announced just yet, the festival has said that it includes ‘Grammy, Billboard and ARIA Award winners who have performed on major international stages across the world’ yet have promised us that it will still be affordable. With a 40k capacity across 4 stages there’s no doubt (we may have heard rumours) that we’re in for a lineup that’ll blow minds.
