Under-18 electronic music fans don’t have to miss out either, with the “Good Life” leg of the festival kicking off on Friday 28th February in Brisbane, March 3rd in Perth, March 7th in Melbourne, before landing in Sydney on March 9th.
2014′s event is set to be the biggest ever, with Festival organizers having signed a deal with Australian mega-promoters, the Mushroom Group. Of the alliance, festival director Brett Robinson said: “The Future is very bright indeed! With the confidence of a brand new alliance the Mushroom Group, Future Music Festival is poised for its biggest ever season. The strength of the relationship will become apparent when we announce our 2014 line up in a few weeks time.” We can see what you mean there, Brett.
