The latest festival to offer up a slate of big-name hip hop and trap artists is DRIP World – with dates in August and September locked in for its big launch down under, promises of “10 hours of non-stop music” and a ticket pricing system that runs from $169 upwards, eyes will be on what’s expected to be the “biggest urban festival in Australia.”
DRIP World has officially shared its first release of acts that will be taking to stages across Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Perth later this year, with French Montana, Lil Skies and Comethazine heading up the announcement.
Alongside the big international acts, the festival has announced that Aussie urban and hip hop artists AMARNI and emerging artists Ay Huncho and Sophiya to round out the first drop of artists.
Much like the name suggests, DRIP World plans to drip-feed its lineup, with more artists to be announced in coming weeks.
We don’t know too much about the incoming spring festival, but we do know that it’ll hit Sydney’s Parramatta Park on August 31, Brisbane Showgrounds on September 1, and Perth’s Gloucester Park on September 8. The festival’s website states that Melbourne’s event will be on September 7, but a venue is yet to be announced.
Tickets begin at $169 for general admission, $330 for VIP passes, and right up to a phenomenally huge $1million for the ‘The Drip‘ experience which includes a private jet for 50 people from any capital city in the world, private entry and meet & greet with all artists, 100 Dom Perignon bottles (!!!) as well as a bunch of other perks.
While you absolutely don’t have to fork out a milli to get along to to the first run of the festival, I absolutely want to shake the hand of the person that drops that kind of coin to go to Parramatta. (And then also ask them for $10k)
Tickets for DRIP World Festival go on sale from Monday June 17, and there’s a cheeky presale happening from Thursday June 13 if you sign up over on the festival’s website.Image: Getty Images / Scott Dudelson
