American EDM stars The Chainsmokers will headline Australia’s second annual Palm Tree music festival, which will take place across three east coast cities in December.

Announced today (July 4), the “Paris” duo will be joined on the lineup by Alesso, Gryffin, Austin Millz, Daya and more.

Produced by Kygo’s Palm Tree Crew and TEG Live, the Australian edition will kick off at the Sydney Showground on December 6, move to Brisbane’s Sandstone Point on December 7 and conclude at Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl on December 8.

Australia is represented by emerging artist Darley, who is moving from triple j rotation to the Ultra main stage, and now Palm Tree Music Festival. “I can’t wait to play one of the biggest festivals in the world with artists I’ve admired my entire career,” she said in a statement to Rolling Stone AU.

Palm Tree Music Festival returns to these shores after its inaugural Australian leg in 2023, which saw headlining performances from Tiësto and co-founder Kygo.

Palm Tree Crew was launched in 2020, a project of Norwegian producer and EDM DJ Kyrre Gorvell Dahll (aka Kygo) and his manager Myles Shear, with a shared dream of rolling out an unmissable festival experience in lush venues around the world.

In just four years, Palm Tree has grown into a global dance party network that has visited Hawaii, the Hamptons, Aspen, Egypt, Mexico, Croatia and beyond.

Palm Tree Crew “harnesses the power of entrepreneurs, investors, strategic advisors and celebrities who know how to build global brands,” the team said in a statement.

Kygo and Shear have clearly done their research on Australia. The former Sound check A report released by Creative Australia in April mapped 535 festivals across the country and found that dance music reigned supreme, accounting for almost one in four dance music festivals nationally (23% of the total).

Tickets for the 2024 Palm Tree Music Festival will go on sale to the general public next Friday, July 12, at 3:00 p.m. local time.
