Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

Calvin Harris, Tiësto, Diplo, Skrillex, and now Zhu – the list goes on for the two-day mega-festival

And that’s barely scratching the surface. Last year, the organisers of Stereosonic expanded the festival into two full days of house, techno, bass, trance and electro.

Less than two months out from the festival, the organisers have just added anonymous 'Faded' star Zhu to the lineup. And yep, tickets are still available.

The headliner for the first day is Scottish house DJ Calvin Harris: maker of bangers like ‘Sweet Nothing’ that even non-EDM fans love. Dutchman Tiësto will bring the trance, Major Lazer helmsman Diplo will unleash his twerk-tastic tracks, and electro/garage duo Disclosure will whip up a DJ set. If you didn't see them at Splendour, make sure you catch local wunderkinds Peking Duk and Nina Las Vegas.

Day two will see Skrillex take to the stage after having to pull out last year, alongside festival favourite Steve Aoki, UK house innovator Carl Cox, Dutch trance lords Dash Berlin, and 22-year-old Porter Robinson, who’ll be sure to offer something different entirely, if the tracks from his upcoming album Worlds are anything to go by. Local beat-makers are well-represented here to: there’s What So Not, Alison Wonderland and the Aston Shuffle.

If you’ve ever felt like you were missing out on the Euro mega-festivals or Miami’s Ultra, then this about as close as we’ll ever get. And once you nab your tickets (pre-sale opens tonight at 8pm), the only challenge will be figuring out how to pace yourself through both days.
