Wildlands' 2023–24 Lineup Is Here with RÜFÜS DU SOL, Central Cee, Peggy Gou and A$AP Ferg

Australia loves music festivals all year round, but this sunny country flatout adores them in summer. So, plenty of them pop up. And, a whole heap of them arrive at the same time, as one year ends and the next begins. Also, they all usually have a swag of acts in common.

Accordingly, if you're in Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide and you've been noticing the lineups for Beyond The Valley and Field Day, and then you saw that Wildlands is returning, you might've put two and two together. That maths would've been correct in a number of cases, too — including RÜFÜS DU SOL, Central Cee and Peggy Gou.

All three artists are headed to all three Wildlands cities, alongside A$AP Ferg, The Jungle Giants and G Flip.

Also on Wildlands' just-dropped bill, although some acts aren't playing South Australia: Sub Focus doing his live show CIRCULAR SOUND, and everyone from Destroy Lonely, LUUDE, Jayda G, Romy and COBRAH to Ewan Mcvicar, Taylah Elaine, Conducta b2b Notion, dameeeela and STÜM.

It's been four years since Brisbane first welcomed Wildlands to the city, with the teams behind Victoria's Beyond The Valley and Perth's Origin Fields fests giving the Sunshine State a big new summer party. Fast-forward to 2023, and the event returns again, including to Perth and Adelaide after expanding to both over the summer of 2022–23 as well.

This year's party will get started on the biggest night there is for celebrations: New Year's Eve. That's when Wildlands will kick off its latest run at Brisbane Showgrounds, before embracing 2024 on Saturday, January 6 at Claremont Showgrounds and Sunday, January 7 at Ellis Park.

Wildlands' last tour featured Diplo, Denzel Curry and Dom Dolla, plus Yeat, Aitch, Kaytranada, Tkay Maidza, Honey Dijon and BENE — and Yung Lean, Shygirl, Remi Wolf, Kanine and SG Lewis, too — because this fest loves going big.

Its first-ever event back in 2019 featured Tyler, The Creator, after all, as well as this year's returnees RÜFÜS DU SOL. In 2021, The Veronicas, Spacey Jane, Cosmo's Midnight and more did the honours.
