Produced by Kicks Entertainment, part of Live Nation Entertainment, Spilt Milk is one of Australia’s fastest-selling single day music and arts festivals. Since 2016, the festival has sold out within hours and this year expects its largest ever attendance to events in Canberra (25 November), Gold Coast (26 November), Ballarat (2 December) and for the first time, Perth (3 December).

In 2022, Spilt Milk generated incredible financial, cultural and social value to the communities it visited, driving a combined total of $54.4M into the Canberra, Gold Coast and Ballarat economies. A significant driver of inbound and repeat tourism, more than 171,000 visitor night stays were recorded across Spilt Milk’s three events in 2022 with 75% of total attendees travelling from out-of-town.

This year, the festival features performances by Post Malone, Dom Dolla, Ocean Alley and Tkay Maidza and welcomes an esteemed line-up of brand partners including Smirnoff, Red Bull, KFC, Rimmel London, Jim Beam, Somersby, Carlton Dry, Tempus One, Balter and more. Each brand offers festival-goers a uniquely immersive activation to enhance the festival experience.

Kristy Rosser, Founder of Secret Sounds Connect, and SVP, Marketing Solutions at Live Nation ANZ said: “At the centre of Spilt Milk’s appeal among young adults is its eclectic mix of global artists, culture and immersive activations by some of the world’s leading brands and creatives. The festival continues to soar to new heights each year, making it one of the most sought-after events, particularly for Australians between the ages of 18 – 24.

“Sentiment among attendees is extremely positive, and in 2022, over 90% shared their experiences online – driving a sense of FOMO across the country. For brands taking part in Spilt Milk, it is a significant opportunity to be part of the social, cultural and economic framework of the festival and local communities, particularly when demand for live music is at its highest.”

The festival promises not only a stand-out live music line-up but a series of brand activation hubs including:
