Canberra's very own SAFIA are also on the bill, fresh off the back of coming in at numbers 35 and 23 in the Hottest 100.

The international portion of the lineup is completely from the US, with MS MR, Mutemath, Odesza, Twenty One Pilots plus rappers Danny Brown and Vic Mensa.

The festival will head to Canberra for the seventh year on Sunday April 24, and will again be held on the ovals at the University of Canberra.

The event seems to be bucking the trend, following the cancellations of other festivals SoulFest, Future Music Festival, The Big Day Out, Homebake, Harvest, Movement and Pyramid Rock.

As well as Canberra, the festival will visit Maitland in New South Wales, Oakland in South Australia, Bendigo in Victoria and Townsville in north Queensland

Tickets go on sale at 9am on February 2 at gtm.net.au.

The full lineup: Alison Wonderland, Boo Seeka, Boy & Bear, British India, Client Liaison, Danny Brown, Drapht, DZ Deathrays, Emma Louise, Golden Features, Harts, Illy, In Hearts Wake, MS MR, Mutemath, Ngaiire, Odesza, Ratatat, Remi, The Rubens, SAFIA, Twenty One Pilots, Vallis Alps, Vic Mensa.
