Diplo, Denzel Curry and Dom Dolla Headline Wildlands' Big Summer 2022–23 Lineup

It's been three years since Brisbane welcomed Wildlands to the city's music festival scene, with the teams behind Melbourne's Beyond The Valley and Perth's Origin Fields fests giving the Sunshine State a big new summer party. Fast-forward to 2022 and the event isn't just returning to see out another hectic 12-month period and welcome in a new one — it's expanding to Perth and Adelaide as well.

And, with a focus on dance music, electronic beats and hip hop, Wildlands has quite the lineup onboard to spread its sounds across three states, starting with Diplo, Denzel Curry and Dom Dolla. Clearly, alliteration has its fans among the fest's organisers.

The Grammy-nominated DJ, American rapper and Australian house music producer will hit all three cities, joined by Yeat, Aitch, Kaytranada, Tkay Maidza, Honey Dijon and BENE. Plus, the bill also includes Yung Lean, Shygirl, Remi Wolf, Kanine and SG Lewis — as well as a few extra names popping up on different legs of the tour.

Wildlands does like going big — its first-ever event back in 2019 featured Tyler, The Creator and Rüfüs Du Sol, after all. In 2021, The Veronicas, Spacey Jane, Cosmo's Midnight and more did the honours.

The fest will run over one day per city, starting on December 30 at Stadium Park at Optus Stadium in Perth, then heading to Adelaide's Ellis Park on January 2. It'll then wrap up on January 7 at Brisbane Showgrounds, turning Brissie's show into a belated new year's celebration rather than an end-0f-year party.

Tickets always prove popular, with registrations for pre-sales — which kick off at 6pm AEST on Tuesday, August 16 — open now.

And vibe-wise, Wildlands goes with a "vibrant oasis" theme.
