Sydney party people, your day in the sun is upon you – Randwick Racecourse is going to be a hive of action this Saturday as tens of thousands of partygoers descend on the venue for the sold-out Future Music Festival!
Following his stint in hospital last weekend, which caused him to miss the festival in Perth and Brisbane, Avicii is going to be ready to rumble and send the crowd bonkers as the Future Music headliner this weekend. Rita Ora is also expected to recover from the throat infection that sidelined her at the Perth event.
Other acts sure to be crowd favourites are veteran UK rockers The Stone Roses and The Prodigy, Dizzee Rascal, and Bloc Party. And of course, let’s not forget PSY, who will make everyone get their horse dance on when he piles out Gangnam Style in the late arvo.
