Wildlands Festival Confirms 2022/2023 Dates, Announces Denzel Curry

The organisers of the Wildlands festival have announced dates and venues for its return to Brisbane and for first-time events in Perth and Adelaide. The three-date run will kick off at Perth’s Optus Stadium Park on Friday, 30th December before heading to Ellis Park in Adelaide on Monday, 2nd January. Wildlands 2022/23 will wrap up at Brisbane Showgrounds on Saturday, 7th January.

In addition to confirming dates and venues, organisers have revealed that US rapper Denzel Curry will perform at all three events. The Florida rapper released his latest album, Melt My Eyez See Your Future, back in March after previewing it with the singles ‘Walkin’, ‘Zatoichi’ (with Slowthai) and ‘Troubles’ (with T-Pain). He recently teamed up with Sampa the Great on ‘Lane’ from Sampa’s forthcoming album As Above, So Below.

Organisers will be revealing the rest of the bill tomorrow (Tuesday, 9th August) via their social media channels. Wildlands has previously hosted the likes of Tyler, the Creator, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Dom Dolla, RL Grime and Skepta.

Curry’s inclusion on the Wildlands lineup is good news for the rapper’s Sydney fans. It’s been speculated that Curry will appear at next year’s Field Day festival after ‘Walkin’ was used in a video announcing the festival’s January return. With Curry locked in for Wildlands, it’s basically a dead cert.
