Aussie hip-hop legends Hilltop Hoods have been added to the Future Music Festival lineup, joining an already massive bill. Hilltop Hoods join the Future Live stage, the lineup for which has just been announced today and also features headliner Drake and rapper 2 Chainz.

“We are very excited to be announcing we are coming to Future Music Festival this year,” says The Hilltop Hoods. “This is our first time so you got to come hang with us. We’re going to be bringing our man Mr Plutonic Lab, we’re gonna have our horn section, DJ Debris getting be healthy and sexy… so see you soon Future.”

The Australian hip-hop group had a big 2014 off the back of their seventh album, ‘Walking Under Stars’, which was the ninth best selling album of 2014 in Australia. Single <em>Cosby Sweater</em>, has become the highest-charting single of their career, reaching #4 on the ARIA Charts, and there’s high odds for the track to place in the top 10 in Triple J’s Hottest 100 come Australia Day.

Future Music Festival is set to be headlined by Drake, The Prodigy and Avicii. Hilltop Hoods will play just before Drake on the Future Live Stage which is also bolstered by 2 Chainz, Example, Sigma, Gorgon City and Kiesza.

As if the lineup wasn’t already big enough, yesterday it grew by more than 200, with local acts added to each city. The festival is set to kick off on Saturday, 28th February in Sydney, before making its way through Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide.
