Festival X 2022
Calvin Harris and Don Toliver headline Festival X's big 2022 return.
November 19, 2022
UPDATE, November 23, 2022: Festival X has announced that Megan Thee Stallion will no longer be headlining the festival. This article has been updated to reflect that lineup change.
It's been three years since the Australian music festival scene welcomed Festival X, which debuted back in 2019 with Calvin Harris leading the bill. We all know why the event hasn't been able to return since, but it's remedying that absence in Melbourne on Saturday, November 26 with Harris as one of its headliners again.
That's fantastic news if you're a fan of the Scottish DJ. Also topping the bill: Don Toliver.
If you're keen for a hot girl summer, Festival X's 2022 comeback was due to feature Megan Thee Stallion as well, who was set to head to Australia for the first time ever; however, she's sadly no longer coming Down Under.
Festival X will take over Flemington Racecourse, with Boys Noize, Green Velvet, John Summit, Luude and MaRLo also doing their thing onstage — and, yes, the list goes on.
Festival X hails from quite the list of industry big guns, with Onelove (Stereosonic), Live Nation (Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival) and Hardware (Piknic Electronik, Babylon) behind the touring event.
