Electro legend Fatboy Slim is returning to Australia next year to headline EDM superfest Electric Gardens, after giving birth to the inaugural event on Australian turf back in 2016.

He will sure be bringing his playlist of timeless bangers to the dancefloor of Sydney’s Centennial Park for the third annual edition of the summer festival’s flagship bash, atop a lineup of international heavyweights including New York icon Armand Van Helden, UK DJ duo Gibbon and Matt Robson-Scott, Detroit techno king MK and many more still TBA.

What’s more, this year’s Sydney instalment will also be double-sized, with four separate musically-themed arenas and three more rounds of major artist announcements to hit us in the coming weeks.

Save-the-dates have also been announced for the festival’s smaller offshoots in Brisbane and Perth, with a Melbourne date locked in as well.

The musical horticulturalists who run Electric Gardens are promising “more artists than ever before” this year along with “the type of global legends we’ve come to expect of Electric Gardens’ programming”, which they’re reminding us “channels the park-based electronica popularised by Parklife, Summadayze, and Listen Out, but goes one step further by steering clear of trend-dependent acts, and instead inviting the absolute godfathers of electronic music to step up to the plates.”
