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?

Can we beleive anything that Future have to hype up? They promised a special 20 year celebration festival this year yet it never happened.

Line-Up aside, last years future was horrid. The trance stage was in the middle of nowhere, shitty sound system and aweful set-up. The line-up to get in was stupid, at least an hour to get in ... then another 40 minutes to get to any of the stages due to construction areas. 2012 FMF was definitely my last. The only redeeming quality was the paypass only queue's for drinks.

edit: 2013 was definitely my last

Venue change definitely needed for Sydney... this year it took up to 20 minutes to get from one stage to the other... construction sights everywhere and very poor stage planning

Honestly I'm excited for this, this years Stereo is almost devoid of techno and earlier this year Future delivered with the cocoon stage and that unforgettable after party (please do that again by the way). Bring the techno and I'll be there for sure.

Both future and Stezza have gone down the toilet. Under new management? Or do current management no longer give a f*#k?

I was really happy with the Prodigy Warriors stage at Futures this year. For me at least, it'll be hard to top having Prodigy, Boys Noize, Feed Me and Zedd's Dead all there on one stage, but I'm still hoping for some big dub/dnb acts. Destroid and/or The Glitch Mob are the big live acts I have my fingers crossed for headlining the bass stage but we'll just have to wait and see.

So ready for Future Music 2014 line up! Bring it on October. Following Stereosonic's bill of acts this year will be tough to beat!
