Women’s final day on Saturday, 27th January, will see fan-favorite DMA’S taking the stage alongside Aussie indie rock royalty The Jungle Giants, ARIA Award-winning Ruel, Tia Gostelow, and Melbourne-based DJ Mel Hall.

As the Men’s final day unfolds on Sunday, 28th January, British superstars Groove Armada and Rudimental will deliver epic performances, joined by Latifa Tee, Sunshine & Disco Faith Choir, and local DJ Cooper Smith.
