Modern pop icons will be on full display with performances from English songstress Charli XCX, new-age America rap royalty G-Eazy and Wiz Khalifa, forward-thinking performer Tinashe and Australian wunderkind Kid Laroi.

Dance music's most famed legends will also take the digital stage with heroic progressive house sets in line from Zedd, Hardwell, Armin Van Buren, and Fedde Le Grand, plus multi-genre throwdowns from global stars TOKiMONSTA and Alison Wonderland. Fans of the heavier end of the electronic spectrum will be treated to a Monstercat takeover to launch phase two featuring an on-location spectacle with Pixel Terror, Habstrakt, Sullivan King and KTN. Manila Killa and Yung Bae will bring their unique indie-electronic stylings to the platform.
