A raucous traveling act, Stereosonic stops in Melbourne, Perth, Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane over 5 days of musical madness from a rotating line up of more than 60 acts, including Skrillex, Carl Cox and Porter Robinson, to name a few. (Nov. 29–Dec. 7; stereosonic.com.au).
An outdoor music festival set in the middle of Hong Kong’s West Kowloon Cultural District, Clockenflap brings together a line up of world-class acts. Last year 30,000 people showed up to watch Franz Fernand, Metric and Four Tet headline, and 45,000 are predicted for this year. (Nov. 28– 30; clockenflap.com).
Held in the beach town of Goa each year, the three-day Sunburn electronic music festival offers a well-rounded variety of international DJs like Swedish House Mafia, Avicii and Armin Van Buuren; live musical acts; and high octane vacation activities like bungee jumping, volleyball and zorbing, the sport of rolling downhill in a plastic ball. (Dec. 27–29; sunburn.in)
Ultra is roving from its traditional home in Miami to make its much-anticipated Japan debut this September. The party is set to be epic, held in a custom-made event space on Odaiba and featuring some of the world’s hottest DJs—think: Hardwell, Fedde Le Grand and Afrojack. (Sept. 27–28; ultrajapan.com)
Founded in 2002, Urbanscape is Malaysia’s longest running creative festival. This year’s program is still pending, but after 2013’s bash, with performances from Two Door Cinema Club and Dangerdisko, we know it will be a stellar show. (late November; urbanscapes.com.my)
