Headlining the festival are rock legends Red Hot Chili Peppers who have recently performed at the Super Bowl opening proving that their own brand of funk and rock is alive and well. Vocalist Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea, drummer Chad Smith and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer are set to give us everything they've got!
The ever so popular DJ and producer extraordinaire Kaskade has left a soft spot in EDM (electronic dance music) kids’ hearts who grew up and delved into the world of classic house because of his hits such as It’s You, It’s Me, 4am, Steppin’ Out and the like.
Australian kings of electronic music, Empire of the Sun are sure to be one of the highlights of the festival as well. Permanent fixtures in festivals across the world, the duo Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore have practically performed at every important music fest you have probably heard of. Known for their massive break out hit Walking on a dream, these perfromers from down under are ready to take us on a wild psychadelic trip.
