The official FOMO Festival line-up has landed. This all killer no filler one day festival, which started in Brisbane in 2016, features a selection of carefully curated local and international talent. At the helm for the 2017 edition are dynamite Chicago heavyweights Flosstradamus and the iconic Empire Of The Sun. Flosstradamus will appear in festival mode for the first time in three years exclusively at FOMO; and Empire Of The Sun are returning for their first Australian performances since 2014 off the back of their just-announced and highly-anticipated third album Two Vines.

FOMO’s expansion announcement saw a fast uptake, with pre-sale (NO-FOMO) tickets selling out in record time after the exciting news that FOMO would be venturing beyond Brisbane in 2017. FOMO is now happy to announce that its new unique homes are The Crescent, Parramatta Park in Sydney and heritage-listed Adelaide Gaol. FOMO are delivering an incredible calibre of international and local artists with accessible ticket prices (ON SALE NOW) starting at just $69+bffor Adelaide and $89+bf for Sydney and Brisbane.

Following Flosstradamus is Skepta’s younger brother and grime royalty JME, who be touring Australia for the very first time, plus Soulection-rapper GoldLink, bringing his infectious jams and explosive energy to the FOMO stage. FOMO’s international brigade is rounded out with two colossal festival exclusives: platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated Drake and Future producer Metro Boomin and UK powerhouse and Dirtybird affiliate Hannah Wants.

Joining Empire of the Sun on FOMO’s massive cohort of local talent are ARIA-winning electronic mavericks Peking Duk, Mad Decent-signed trending export Slumberjack and triple threat threat George Maple who will showcase her commanding performance and flawless vocal abilities. In Brisbane and Sydney, production whiz Feki takes to the stage, alongside Melbourne’s next-big-thing Maribelle, with Gold Coast dream-pop duo Lastlings rounding out the line-up; while Adelaide will play host to three rising stars of the local scene: NLV Records-signed Strict Face, triple j Unearthed favourite TXNK and Club Love’s Dancespace.

Once again returning to the picturesque surrounds of Riverstage Brisbane, FOMO has expanded to two unique locations across Australia. Playing host to a music festival for the first time ever, Sydney ticketholders will be introduced to The Crescent, Parramatta Park. Lush greenlands and a natural amphitheatre in the geographical centre of Sydney serve as a backdrop. The best bit? The Crescent’s amphitheatre creates a natural sound amplification, allowing punters to party louder and longer. Adelaide Gaol will play host to the South Australian leg, a major part of Adelaide’s heritage and one of its oldest public structures, which thanks to FOMO will be transformed into one of the best live music settings.

But music isn’t the only thing on the menu at FOMO 2017. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for a host of incredible food and beverage vendors, carefully chosen to showcase a selection of the best local and international cuisine Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide have to offer. Delicious!
