Lil Nas X Is Coming to Sydney This Summer for a One-Off Falls Festival Sideshow
The 'Old Town Road' artist will play his first-ever Sydney show in January — and PinkPantheress and Magdalena Bay have also announced gigs in the Harbour City.

Can't make time among your summer plans for Falls Festival this year? Won't be able to see out 2022 and welcome in 2023 at Lost Paradise, either? In ace news for Sydneysiders, headliner Lil Nas X is coming to you. Falls Festival has just dropped its lineup of upcoming sideshows, and the 'Old Town Road' artist leads the bill — playing his first-ever Sydney gig, in fact, in January.
You'll want to take your horse — or your usual form of transport — to Hordern Pavilion, with Lil Nas X's Long Live Montero tour stopping by the venue on Wednesday, January 4. Now that's how you make the most of holiday season, even if it looks like Lil Nas X's teamup with The Wiggles won't be on the bill at his standalone concert.
You'll still hear everything from 'Old Town Road' to 'Rodeo' and 'Holiday', though, plus 'Panini', 'Montero (Call Me By Your Name)', 'Industry Baby' and 'That's What I Want', too.
It's obviously been a huge few years for the artist, with his breakout single becoming the longest-running number-one song on America's Billboard Hot 100 since 1958, when the chart debuted.
Also on the Falls Festival sideshow list is British singer, songwriter and producer PinkPantheress, who'll hit Sydney's Roundhouse on the same date — Wednesday, January 4 — to bust out 'Pain', 'Passion', 'Break It Off', 'Just for Me' and more.
And, Florida synth-pop duo Magdalena Bay are heading to Oxford Art Factory on Thursday, January 5, fresh from supporting Flume, Porter Robinson and Charli XCX before playing Falls.
Pre-sale tickets for all three shows go on sale at 9am AEST on Monday, September 5, with general sales from 9am AEST on Tuesday, September 6.
