First, Spilt Milk gave music lovers and festival fans in Canberra, Ballarat and southeast Queensland the news they'd been hoping for: in November and December this year, the beloved music, art and food fest will finally return. Now, the event has unleashed unleashed its impressive lineup, aka exactly who you'll be dancing to. Leading the charge: Flume, Stormzy and The Wombats.

Homegrown hitmaker Flume nabs one of the headliner slots fresh from playing Coachella, while UK grime pioneer Stormzy adds Spilt Milk to his upcoming — and rescheduled — Down Under tour. The latter also proves true of British indie rockers The Wombats, who keep proving a hit on our shores — with 15 slots in Triple J's Hottest 100 over the years to prove it.

Also on the bill: Ninajirachi, FISHER, G Flip,Genesis Owusu, Mallrat, Spacey Jane, A.GIRL and PEACH PRC, among others — and, from the art lineup, a heap of talent from long-running Spilt Milk partners Studio A. Also, because this fest is also about food, there'll be bites to eat from Alongside, Firepop, Black Bear BBQ, 1800 Lasagne and more.

Originally only held in Canberra, then expanding to Ballarat, and now heading to the Gold Coast as well, the fest will hit up its ACT home on Saturday, November 26 at Exhibition Park, then regional Victoria on Saturday, December 3 at Victoria Park, before wrapping things up on Sunday, December 4 at Doug Jennings Park in the Sunshine State.

The multi-city one-dayer has cemented its spot as a must-attend event for a heap of reasons — and tickets have sold out in under 30 minutes every year, including in a record nine minutes one year. So, expect this to be one of the most anticipated returns of 2022.
