Giving music lovers Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Spilt Milk and Harvest Rock is a massive task and achievement, but that's not all that's on Secret Sounds' festival calendar. This summer, the team is also bringing a lineup led by Flume, Foals and The Avalanches to three Australian cities as part of the returning Heaps Good.

To get 2023 started in style, Adelaide scored a brand-new music fest in January, with Heaps Good starting as a one-day, one-city event with Arctic Monkeys headlining. It clearly went well, because Secret Sounds announced back in August that the festival will triple its footprint to see out this year and begin 2024. Now, it has unveiled who'll be taking to the stage in Adelaide, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Having Flume and The Avalanches on the same bill is quite the homegrown feat, with Britain's Foals joining the two at all three stops. Also playing every city: Griff, Holly Humberstone, MAY-A, Sycco and Logan.

Melbourne will score a Basement Jaxx DJ set as well, while SBTRKT is playing everywhere but Adelaide — and Declan McKenna will hit Adelaide and Brisbane but skip Melbourne.

Adelaide Showground is still hosting Heaps Good's SA stop, this time on Saturday, January 6, 2024 — but the fest will first hit up Sidney Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne, then Sandstone Point in Brisbane. Need something to do for New Year's Eve, Melburnians? That's now sorted, because that's when the event is coming to town.

Sandstone Point in Brisbane gets the nod to usher in 2024, taking place on Tuesday, January 2. Yes, that's all the reason you need to extend your Christmas and New Year break.
