Calvin Harris, Tiësto, Diplo, Disclosure, W&W and DJ Snake will headline the first of the two artist groups with: Skrillex, Alesso, Steve Aoki, Showtek, Dash Berlin and special guest Carl Cox leading the charge for the second group of Stereosonic artists. In a year of domination of world festival stages and charts we are very proud of our Australian acts returning from global shows this year to Stereosonic.
Calvin Harris, one of the world’s most biggest artists is thrilled to be returning to the region’s favourite electronic music festival: “I love Stereosonic! I’m looking forward to getting back out and playing in Australia.”
Several much loved and respected music brands will be partnering with Stereosonic this year indicating the level of respect Stereosonic has on the world stage within the industry. LA’s HARD, known for its Holy Ship! and HARD LA parties, will be taking charge of Main Stage 2 on one day. The highly respected Dutch brand ‘Awakenings,’ will be throwing down deep house and techno sounds, whilst Ferry Corsten will return with his iconic ‘FULL ON’ arena. Legendary record labels and electronic brands: Armada, OWSLA and Beatport will all make their arena debuts at an Australian festival, for Stereosonic.

What a year for the Stereosonic Artists!
Quite simply one of the biggest names in Dance music, Tiësto has had some huge tracks out, headlined countless festivals and has a huge new compilation out ‘Club Life – Vol. Two Miami’ (see below for our special Ticketmaster offer). Avicii simply had the biggest track in 2011/2012 and headlined countless festivals and worked on new collaborations with artists such as Lenny Kravitz and is producing anthems such as ‘Silhouettes.’ He simply doesn’t stop! Calvin Harris synonymous with electro pop music is set to release another killer collab, this time with fellow Stereosonic artist, Example. Both have had huge years in touring and production. Celebrating ten years of residency on the White Isle last year, the prolific Carl Cox continues to impress. His legendary sets in Ibiza are still drawing thousands weekly. Major Lazer are back and ready to expose fans to their eclectic dance hall vibes with a new show. Dutch turbine Laidback Luke combines to make a power trio of Stereosonic artists with one of Australia’s favourite acts and tennis star Martin Solveig and Dirty Dutch superstar Chuckie delivering ‘1234,’ a mad crowd track that will surely be dropped during the tour. Dash Berlin has started 2012 with a bang, his latest album ‘#musicislife’ is already delivering chart success. Dash’s trance comrades: Infected Mushroom, Markus Schulz, Sander van Doorn, Aly & Fila, Simon Patterson & MaRLo continue to experience huge love from the trance family. Infected Mushroom are back with their awesome live show (and table tennis skills). The techno fraternity asked and we listened with a huge Techno offering featuring: ‘Carl Cox Revolution’ (brand new room) with Carl Cox, Loco Dice, Adam Beyer, Joris Voorn and more. Rising stars Porter Robinson is one of the most in demand acts at the moment withBass Nectar both having a huge year in 2012. Aussie Tommy Trash has risen to become a huge global producer and DJ this year and is coming back to Australia for Stereosonic. ‘Holy Ship!’ and ‘Hard Fest’ owner Destructo is back after a huge Stereosonic 2011. There will be plenty of Bromance this tour with Brodinski and Gesaffelstein who will be partying with Zedd, Dillion Francis and Foreign Beggars. Diplo’slatest record ‘Express Yourself’ has in typical Diplo fashion exploded across the world with its eclectic high-spirited feel. The rise and rise of bass continues, with Flux Pavillion, Caspa and Datsik all riding the wave of bass adoration in the last year. Australian indie kids, Van She, are finally back with a killer new album ‘Idea of Happiness’ which has already spawned two songs: ‘Idea of Happiness’ and ‘Jamaica,’ perfect for Summer. Kaz James is back, one of the artists who appeared at our first ever Stereosonic, with Feenix Pawl after huge Beatport success and one of the anthems of the European summer.
Don’t miss out!
2011 saw our biggest crowds to date with Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide selling out up to eight weeks before the festival. With the vibe already huge for Stereosonic 2012, it is predicted that we’ll witness big shows again this year thanks to our stellar line-up. We want to party with you, so make sure you purchase your ticket(s) early to avoid disappointment.
This year we welcome: Main Stage 2, plus a new techno stage with ‘Carl Cox Revolution,’ ‘Paris Social Club’ (first time in Australia) and the‘Hard Stage’ (also a first time in Australia – Purveyors of ‘Hard Festival’ and ‘Holy Ship!’)
