The Grass Is Greener line-up in focus
One of the most iconic acts transcending hip hop over the past two decades, Ty Dolla $ign will be gracing the stage in the four regional locations at The Grass Is Greener.
The 5-time Grammy nominated artist has skyrocketed his career since his debut album in 2014 and shares collaborations with the likes of Megan The Stallion, Skrillex, and Tyler, the Creator among many others. Expect nothing short of a typically incredible showing from the Los Angeles superstar.
When you can get one of the biggest names in hip hop, why not get two? YG adds to The Grass Is Greener’s most daring line-up this summer. The BET award winner will be bringing his live show to Australia for the first time since 2018 highlighting the magnitude of the event.
Building on his already illustrious career some of YG’s most notable collaborations include Drake, 50 Cent, and J Cole. The crowd will undoubtedly be blessed with a catalogue of global hits including the two time platinum song Who Do You Love?.
Crossing genres, The Grass Is Greener welcomes EDM global star ZHU, who since releasing his grammy award nominated single Faded has been a leader in the dance music industry across the world.
When you think of dance music, it is almost impossible to think past Australian royalty PNAU who will be bringing their historically radiant live set to the festival.
On the back of their recent soundtrack contribution to the cinematic feature film Elvis and their #1 remix of Elton John and Dua Lipa’s Cold Heart, PNAU are in the prime of their creativity and will look to give their audience an outer body experience.
