It’s that time EDM fans nationwide wait all year for! Whether you’re a casual D&B-head or a committed, full-time raver, the lineup for Future Music Festival 2014 is big news for most punters. The news may have expanded just a little further in size, with a recent leak confirming that the FMF 2014 headliners will be Deadmau5, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and Phoenix with the lineup also featuring Eric Prydz.
We’d already seen D&B maestros Rudimental confirmed for the FMF 2014 lineup, revealing their inclusion to Music Feeds yesterday. You can watch the full video below.
The rumour mill for one of Australia, and now Asia’s, biggest dance events starts churning as soon as the last discarded water bottle is removed from Adelaide’s Bonython Park, and so far has seen some big names floated around, including superstar Avicii, Knife Party, Hardwell, and Kaskade.
The festival began in 2006 as a one-day standalone event taking place in Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse. That year saw the likes of Armin van Buuren as headliner, with Markus Schulz, David Guetta, Steve Angello, and other big acts filling out the bill. After the dissolution of the legendary Two Tribes festival that year, Future ascended to become one of Australia’s most beloved electronic music festivals.
Recently, Festival owners Future Entertainment have been seeing some tough times. The news has been rife with stories of epic debts, scrapping of major festivals, restructuring, and name-changes. But in trademark style, they haven’t let any of that get in the way of curating an incredible day of entertainment for their fans.
Future Music 2014 will kick off in Brisbane on 1st March, 2014, sweeping its way through the country with stops in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide. Music Feeds will have the full lineup right here, the second it drops!
UPDATE: Organisers have announced Pharrell Williams as a last minute addition to the festival, with the producer and Get Lucky singer added to FMF in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide. Williams will also play sideshows in Perth and Brisbane. Full details here.
