FREEDOM TIME Festival returns this summer for the third summer. The beloved day-night dance-celebration and sound system spectacular will visit three Australian cities; returning to its spiritual home in Perth on New Year’s Eve, then back to Melbourne’s much-loved Coburg Velodrome on New Year’s Day, and, for the first time ever, FREEDOM TIME will grace the shores of Sydney, heading to Manning Bar and Gardens on Sunday the 7th of January.

Freedom Time Festival is back for the 2017/18 festive season.

This year the festival will be returning to both Perth and Melbourne and they’ve also added Sydney to the list!

Renowned for its eclectic lineup, positive energy and free-spirited atmosphere, FREEDOM TIME features some of the world’s most respected & highly regarded artists, producers and DJs, alongside the best local talent each city has to offer, united together for an open-air celebration of music, diversity and community.

House pioneer Larry Heard AKA Mr Fingers, Rhythm Section’s Bradley Zero and Sassy J are set to bring the party as headliners at each event, plus there’s a whole lot of excellent local and international talent joining in for each city.

Heard will be closing out the festival each night with his 30+ years of tunes, while Zero is bringing along a special showcase Aussie fans, working with local artists in each city.

The festival will be taking over Perth’s Northbridge carpark for New Year’s Eve, Melbourne’s Coburg Velodrome on New Year’s Day and Sydney’s Manning Bar on 7 Jan.
