From its birthplace in the electric Ibiza, DON’T LET DADDY KNOW has grown into one of the biggest dance music festivals globally, attracting some of the world’s most exciting names in EDM to its stages. And in Summer 2024, DLDK is bringing the action to Australia for the very first time, locked and loaded to take place across the East Coast in January.
Pre-sales commence Wednesday 11 October, before tickets go on sale to the general public at 12pm, Tuesday 17 October from Ticketek Australia.
The summer vibes will be at an all-time high this coming January, with DLDK’s arrival set to elevate Australia’s incredible festival season to new heights. The debut Australian run through Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane will be a gamechanger in Australia’s EDM scene – living up to the epic legacy of its international counterparts for a one-of-a-kind festival experience this summer.
The explosive artist bill will be led by one of the most innovative and sought-after artists, Grammy Award-winning producer and DJ, AFROJACK. Since making his breakthrough with the multi-platinum-selling single ‘Take Over Control’, the Dutch-born musician has lent his production skills to tracks that bend genres and lay the foundation for major hits for artists such as Beyoncé, Pitbull, Will.i.am and more.
Joining AFROJACK on the debut DLDK tour of Australia is evergreen festival favourite Timmy Trumpet who’s taken over international stages with his high-octane sets. An award-winning, multi-platinum selling recording artist, Timmy has forged his way to the very top, with a discography that exceeds 2.5 billion+ streams.
Danish DJ MORTEN has also joined the line-up – renowned for coining the ‘future rave’ genre with close friend and collaborator David Guetta. MORTEN has graced the stages of some of the most prolific festivals in the world, and even took up residency with Guetta in Ibiza in 2022.
Making their return to Australia for DLDK, are Dutch hardstyle duo Sub Zero Project, who have established themselves as a must-see act for EDM fans with their combination of crazy high-quality productions and a unique signature sound.
DLDK are also excited to be expanding the line-up with some incredible local talent, including RESTRICTED, Dimatik and Bobby Neon.
RESTRICTED is one of Australia’s quickest rising names, who is rapidly gaining support from some of the industry’s biggest tastemakers and music labels. This 22 year older DJ/Producer has carved his signature style with influences from UK Bassline, Techno, and Hard Dance, amassing over 50 million streams in 2022 alone.
Dimatik is a complete package – from heavy hitting music that teeters the line between hardstyle and psy trance, to his haunting and head-banging live shows. His stylistic approach to music has caught the attention from crowds across the globe and it’s no surprise that he’s been supported by the likes of Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto, Hardwell, KSHMR, David Guetta, & more.
Paving the way in the electronic music industry, Bobby Neon has pioneered with his masterful productions and memorable performances. From holding residencies at some of Australia’s biggest club nights, to touring around Australia making guest performances, there is no doubt his music has made a huge impact within the EDM community.
In only ten years, DLDK has transformed into a global movement – with events expanding into over twenty countries including the UK, Thailand and Singapore.
The festival brand has set themselves apart as being one of the most dedicated EDM platforms – DLDK is about more than just a fun day out, it’s about consistently promoting cutting-edge talent and keeping its finger on the pulse when it comes to pinpointing the next wave of superstars.
Putting the emphasis on elevating prime Australian EDM talent alongside global heavy hitters, DLDK is set to offer Australian fans the best of EDM talent this January.
TEG GROUP CEO GEOFF JONES said “TEG is thrilled to be bringing one of the world’s premier EDM festivals to Australian shores. Renowned for featuring some of the biggest and most influential artists in EDM, along with some very impressive production, Australian electronic music fans should definitely mark these dates in their calendar as it’s sure to be the event of the Australian summer!”
Presented by TEG Live in Australia, DLDK is set to redefine the live EDM landscape in Australia, setting a new standard for festivals and festival goers in 2024. With more information still to come, fans are urged to jump on tickets once they go on sale – they will not hang around!
