Deadmau5, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Phoenix and Hardwell will make the long trek to Australia next year for the five-city Future Music Festival.

Homegrown acts Knife Party, Cut Copy, Stafford Brothers and Timmy Trumpet will also make the trip, while Eric Prydz will play his first-ever Australian dates at the EDM fest.

The line-up was revealed Tuesday in Sydney, where Rudimental turned it up for guests. The British drum & bass act, which played this year’s Future tour, will return for the 2014 run. Others announced to the line-up include German DJ Paul Van Dyk, U.K. rapper Tinie Tempah and American hip hop artist 2 Chainz.

The 2014 edition of the Future Music Festival is the first through a potentially brand-saving new partnership with Australian independent music powerhouse the Mushroom Group.

Next year's shows represent a new start for Future, which pitches the event as its "biggest lineup to date."

March 1, Brisbane, RNA Showgrounds
