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
March 2, Perth, Arena Joondalup
March 8, Sydney, Royal Randwick Racecourse
March 9, Melbourne, Flemington Racecourse
March 10, Adelaide, Adelaide Showgrounds
