The inaugural Aussie edition, headlined by Tiësto and Kygo in 2023, was a slam dunk for this universal brand which has become known for chasing down the hottest locations around the world, with Australia joining the fray alongside Hawaii, the Hamptons, Mexico, Croatia, and more. Developed by Kygo, the Palm Tree branded events are inspired by the bonds and memories forged with musical friends from years of touring around the world. Now heading into its second year, Palm Tree Music Festival is fast becoming an annual calendar favourite in Australia, so ready your crew and get set to make your own memories with this one-of-a-kind music event.

There is no more fitting headliner for Palm Tree Music Festival 2024 than global hitmakers the Chainsmokers, with the Grammy-winning duo Drew Taggart and Alex Pall set to head back to Australia for the first time in five years. The band have set the cultural tempo and delivered some of the biggest songs in the world, hosting a historic multi-year Las Vegas residency, packing arenas on multiple continents, launching first-of-its-kind games in the metaverse, and selling tens of millions of singles along the way, scoring three Diamond singles, namely the Billboard Hot 100 #1 Closer [feat. Halsey], Something Just Like This [with Coldplay], and Don’t Let Me Down [feat. Daya].

Don’t miss Swedish DJ and producer Alesso’s legendary dance anthems that have seen him own stages at Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, Creamfields, Tomorrowland, and more. Excited to be heading back to Australia, Alesso said, “Can’t express how excited I am to come back to one of my favourite countries in the world. Every time I get invited back, it’s always a highlight of the year. Aussie crowds are no question one of the best and craziest crowds. I love audiences that aren’t shy to show their enthusiasm and ready to have a good time, plus, one of the funniest people I know is from Australia, and the seafood is awesome!”

Get swept away by classically trained multi-instrumentalist Gryffin’s captivating soundscapes that have seen him gain recognition across the globe for iconic remixes of Tove Lo’s Talking Body, Maroon 5’s Animals, and more. Upon returning to Australia for Palm Tree Music Festival, Dan Gryffin said, “So excited to be coming to Australia for my very first time.”

Jump into the world of genre-bending Harlem hero Austin Millz. Hailing from New York’s vibrant boroughs to taking centre stage at international music festivals, Austin Millz’ innovative beats and electrifying sets have established him as a pioneering force in the global music scene. Even prior to his viral Boiler Room moment in August 2023, he is applauded industry-wide for his fusion of soul, electronic, and dance music, carving out a special niche between the genres. Millz returns to Australia after his first headline tour in 2024 which cemented his status as a favourite on the scene.

Prepare to be dazzled by synth-pop innovator Daya. Earning a Grammy award before she was twenty, Daya’s debut single was written while she was still in high school and went double Platinum, her dance anthem with the Chainsmokers, Don’t Let Me Down sold more than 10 million copies in America alone. “I’m so excited to play the Palm Tree Fest! It’ll be my first time ever performing in Australia and to do it alongside so many old friends will be a dream,” beams Daya.

Repping Australia proudly is one of the country’s most exciting emerging artists, Darley. From triple j rotation to performing on the main stage at Ultra, Darley’s ascent in the music industry has not gone unnoticed, and her gratitude is real, saying, “I can’t wait to be playing on one of the world’s biggest festivals with artists I’ve looked up to my whole career”.
