Future Music Festival hypes “blockbuster” line-up for 2014
March might seem like a while away yet, but you can rest assured that Future Music Festival’s 2014 preparations are in full swing. “Every year we work hard to up the ante on the line-up we deliver for Future Music Festival in March and I gotta say we’re looking good to hit the ball right out of the park when announce next year’s blockbuster!” Future posted to their Facebook earlier this week. “Which artists are you hoping to see on #FMF14?”
With this year’s Future bill having boasted everyone from the incendiary The Prodigy through to Boys Noize, Hardwell, Avicii and Madeon and a pair of superbly-curated techno and trance arenas, an ever bigger bill for 2014 is a tantalising prospect. So which big name would really up that ante? If the responses on Future’s Facebook are any indication, there’s a lot of punters hanging out to see Deadmau5 in the headline slot. With the mau5 conspicuously absent from Australia since 2011, he’s certainly due a return visit – and, as he told inthemix earlier this year, he’s “180% focussed” on touring at the moment. Keep your fingers crossed.
If you’re in the mood to speculative about who might be coming out, we’ve got a few ideas. In our list of 20 tour predictions for summer, inthemix tipped a return visit from FMF 2013 favourite Hardwell, big room gun Kaskade, seizure music specialists Knife Party and dubstep-turned-disco don Skream, to cherrypick a few. With Future historically announcing their line-up mid-October, there’s still a couple of months to go before the lid on next year’s bill is lifted. So, who are you hoping for?
