Future Music 2014 Lineup: Know Your Festival

Written by Greg Moskovitch on September 17, 2013

It’s the moment ravers, D&B-heads, two-steppers, trance addicts and house fanatics wait all year for, the first lineup announcement for Future Music Festival 2014 is finally here and it’s one of the festival’s most jam-packed lineups yet. Sitting at the top of the FMF 2014 bill are Deadmau5, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Phoenix, with a slew of hot acts filling out the roster.

TICKETS FOR FUTURE MUSIC FESTIVAL 2014 ARE ON SALE NOW – PICK THEM UP RIGHT HERE!

Drum & Bass masters Rudimental had already confirmed their presence on the FMF 2014 stage to Music Feeds, and we now have confirmation regarding the strong rumours of Eric Prydz and Dubfire‘s 2014 Down Under trips.

Below, you can find info on all of the hot acts revealed in today’s announcement. Live videos from the top 8 bands on the bill, info and photos on all the rest. Curious about what’s been happening with, say, Hardwell? Just click on their name in the lineup list and you’ll be directed to their Feed page, where all of their latest goings-on are conveniently presented for your viewing pleasure.

With more acts still to be revealed, Future Music 2014 is already destined to be the biggest dance event of the year, giving EDM obsessives and casual fans plenty of reasons to celebrate. Tickets are priced at $160 + bf and service charge, with tickets for the Adelaide event going for $155 + bf and service charge. They go on sale Tuesday, 1st October via Future Music Festival.


DEADMAU5

The moral compass of modern dance music, Deadmau5 will be making his long overdue Australian return right at the pointy end of the FMF ’14 line up. The last time Deadmau5 A.K.A Joel Zimmerman unleashed his next-level set upon Australian audiences was back in 2011 so this will be his first stint down under with Album Title Goes Here or perhaps even an even fresher album by then.

MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS

This is fucking awesome! The duo behind the mega hit of 2012/2013 Thrift Shop truly need no introduction. The pair were in town supporting their buzz at the start of 2013 so we’ve clearly done something right to have them back so soon.

PHOENIX

The French guitar pop ensemble have maintained a solid relationship with their Australian fan base. Having dropped their latest album Bankrupt! a couple of months ago, coupled with the fact that the band said they had early-2014 in mind to head Down Under, an appearance at Future Music Festival 2014 is no surprise. Phoenix were last in town back in 2009.

HARDWELL

This Dutch electro house star was just here for FMF 2013, but just can’t seem to get enough of the Australian crowds. He’s toured with Tiesto, released some of the biggest club hits of the past decade and now he’s returning Down Under to rock Australian audiences once again.

Watch: Hardwell – Live at Tomorrowland 2013


KNIFE PARTY

Two of Australia’s own electronic superstars make up this genre-merging duo. Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen are both members of a little group called Pendulum and with that kind of EDM pedigree, you can be sure their FMF 2014 set will be electrifying and heavy.

Watch: Knife Party – Live at Ultra Music 2013


ERIC PRYDZ

Speculation that the Call On Me hit-maker would make the trip Down Under in 2014 has been mounting for a while, reaching critical mass in the last few days. The confirmation that one of Sweden’s top house producers is finally on his way here after cancelling a 2012 tour has made a lot of Aussie punters very happy.

Watch: Eric Prydz – Live at Tomorrowland 2013


RUDIMENTAL

These London boys assured Music Feeds that they would be on the Future 2014 lineup and they’re not ones to break their word (just their beats). Returning in 2014 for the fourth time in just over a year, these guys come with some considerable, chart-topping drum & bass chops in tow.

TINIE TEMPAH

This English rapper, real name Patrick Junior Chukwuemeka Okogwu, goes from strength to strength, having released his first mixtape as recently as 2005, his debut album entered the charts at number one just five years later. He’s known for his dynamic, enormously entertaining live performances.
