    Stereosonic

    In a state spoilt for choice when it comes to dance music festivals, scoring the #1 spot is no easy feat. But with a lineup boasting some of the year’s hottest acts, including Deadmau5, Crookers, The Bloody Beetroots, Axwell and Fedde Le Grand, Stereosonic 2009 earned its place at Victoria’s top event for the very first time.

    Future Music Festival

    The Future Music Festival is always one of Victoria’s most anticipated events, and the 2010 edition was no exception. It looks as though introducing even more live acts proved a success, with The Prodigy, Franz Ferdinand and Empire Of The Sun attracting huge crowds in spite of some pretty intense weather conditions.

    Defqon.1 Festival

    Fiercely proud of its Dutch heritage, Defqon.1 premiered on Australian soil in 2009 to exceptional reviews. “Never, in my entire life, have I been completely awe-struck after an event,” wrote our inthemix reviewer. The scale and production of the event flawed all who attended, so it is little surprise that the festival has taken the top spot in 2010, being voted NSW's favourite event. [Festival Page]

    Splendour In The Grass

    Perhaps the biggest and most comprehensive lineup Australia’s has ever seen, Splendour in the Grass steals the #1 spot for Queensland in their very first year at new venue Woodford. Splendour raised the bar in 2010, celebrating their 10th anniversary with the likes of Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem, Delphic and Miike Snow. [Festival Page]

    Stereosonic

    It's no secret; Queenslanders love to party. And what better place to party than at a festival? Stereosonic reigned supreme in 2009 nationally, and the Brisbane leg of the tour was the last date. Crowds certainly sent the festival off in fine style, and clearly had a good time doing it having voted Stereosonic as one of the year's favourites. [Festival Page]

    Stereosonic

    Rocketing into pole position as WA's favourite festival for the very first time, Stereosonic was a universal success in 2009. Alongside the international talent sampled at all tour date nationally, however, Perth locals like Jus Haus, Micah, Canyons and Mind Electric held their own for the WA crowds, making for a wild day at the Claremont Showgrounds.

    Future Music Festival

    There must have been sometime in the air at Future Music Festival in Perth this year. Not only did the crowd love the festival so much they named it as one of their favourites, but Sven Vath, John Digweed, Dubfire, Booka Shade and Above & Beyond had so much fun they kicked on afterwards at an after party in one lucky punter’s backyard. That's one to tell the grandkids about! [Festival Page]

    Foreshore

    Set on the water at Commonwealth Place - with a prime view of Parliament House, of course - in 2009 Foreshore boasted a massive lineup of international stars, including The Bloody Beetroots, Deadmau5, Axwell and Empire of the Sun. This is the third straight year Foreshore has been voted Canberra's favourite festival. [Festival Page]

    All Our Friends

    The inaugural All Our Friends festival gave Canberra a reason to come out of winter hibernation, with Laidback Luke and Steve Akoi rocking the UC Refectory to its foundations. They well and truly made up for last minute cancellation of fellow headliners Tiga, The Proxy and Felix Da Housecat. [Festival Page]

    Future Music Festival

    Future Music Festival maintains its four year reign as the festival state’s favourite festival - could there be a bigger honour?

    Stereosonic

    Adelaide loves The Bloody Beetroots - with the Italian’s having visited the city on pretty much every one of their Australian tours over the past few years. It’s therefore little surprise that their closing set at Stereosonic 2009 made the festival one of the best of the year. The likes of Deadmau5, Axwell and Fedde Le Grand certainly didn't harm things!
