This year’s lineup is headed by the UK trance and progressive house group Above & Beyond. One of the genre’s most respected figures, Above & Beyond have been wowing crowds since the late ’90s and have since built a cult-like following. They’ve played everywhere from Madison Square Garden to the Red Rocks Amphitheatre and are certain to create unforgettable moments when they take the stage at Dreamstate.

Joining them will be the Dutch-born Australian DJ MaRLo. The artist has had a strong hold on Aussie audiences for over a decade – in 2010, he was voted Australia’s #2 Best Trance DJ and the #11 Best Overall by Inthemix Top 50. Known for his thick basslines, captivating live performances and catchy melodies, he’s one of Australia’s most enduring EDM acts for a reason.

The Israeli duo Vini Vici are also on the bill, bringing their distinct brand of psychedelic trance to the Syndey Showground and the Flemington Racecourse. After breaking through with their iconic 2015 track The Tribe, Vini Vici has been recognised as a leading part of the psytrance revolution by fusing spiritual motifs, hypnotic elements and tribal samples into their music.

This year, the festival is set to host two huge stages at both locations, making sure the music won’t stop all day long.
