COMING in 2019

Due to unforeseen last-minute changes in artist availability, the partners involved in Festival X have agreed not to proceed with the 2018 event. We set out to deliver the very best experience and the compromises to the proposed line-up did not meet the vision that we have for FestivalX. More news will follow on our future plans for FestivalX - stay tuned to the website and Facebook page for more information.

Are you ready Australia?! Hardware and Onelove, the creators of Australia’s biggest electronic music festival Stereosonic, have once again joined forces and partnered with the world’s leading live entertainment company, Live Nation to launch the new summer music extravaganza FestivalX in November 2018.

A multi-stage festival experience, FestivalX will showcase hip hop, pop, EDM and electronica. FestivalX will land as the first major touring festival on the Australian Summer calendar and deliver some of the biggest music superstars that have dominated music, radio and streaming charts across the globe. The line-up  includes Grammy, Billboard and ARIA Award winners who have performed on major international stages across the world. Held across four days, November 29 to December 2, FestivalX will be heading to Auckland, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.

For music fans, FestivalX is an affordable and exciting experience to see the best new talent alongside high profile festival favourites - all rolled up into the biggest day of the summer!

“We’ve been working on this for while now and the time is right! Fans and the industry want a reliable, value for money musical experience showcasing the faves and new artists. We’ve got awesome musical artists, stage designers and builders responsible for some of the most spectacular looking stage designs at EDC, ID&T etc… It’s the start of summer and a great time to celebrate end of exams, holidays coming and listen to some loud, awesome music. Massive feels!” Says, Richie McNeill, Hardware

“FestivalX is going to showcase the best local and international talent while bringing fans a new festival experience. It’s going to be huge, and it’s going to be the pre-summer party fans have been waiting for. Australia get ready!”, Roger Field, Live Nation

“Our goal has always been to create events that showcase entertainment on an epic scale, with a firm focus on FUN! There is nothing currently on offer in the Australian market quite like FestivalX ” Adds, Frank Cotela, Onelove
