Perth music lovers – the first day of your Labour Day Weekend festival bender begins here, with Future Music Festival about to take over the Arena Joondalup today!
A throng of acts across several genres will ensure there’s something for everyone at the traditionally dance/indie-flavoured festival, headlined this year by veteran UK rockers The Stone Roses and The Prodigy.
Pop lovers can lap up Rita Ora and Fun., indie kids will lose their marbles at Bloc Party, while Dance fans can get their kicks from Avicii and Rudimental. Dizzee Rascal and Azealia Banks have the rap quota sorted, while PSY will be sending the joint crazy with Gangnam Style (and whatever else he can do in his half-hour set) in the mid-afternoon.
Music Feeds has put together all the info you need to make sure you get to the festival safely and have a killer day out. The timetable and map are at the bottom of the page, while public transport info is located right below that. For all other questions, hit up the Future Music Festival official website.
