This will be the first time Nicki performs at the Australian festival, after recently telling fans she’d be touring Australia in 2019 for the NICKIHNDRX Tour.
FOMO will be held at Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne during two separate weekends in January. There will be sets from producer Mura Masa, singer-songwriter Kali Uchis, Dutch DJ San Holo, Australia’s Anna Lunoe and Scottish artist SOPHIE.
The festival is also planning to expand FOMO By Night to more cities that are still-to-be-determined. The festival will additionally help support arts charity Heaps Decent and the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre by donating one dollar from every online ticket sold.
FOMO organizers will launch an official online ticket resale facility to allow the public to safely sell and purchase tickets.

The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York got loud and wild on Tuesday night, with the star-studded Tidal X: 10/20 benefit concert. Jay Z, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Usher, Nick Jonas and T.I. were just a few of the huge names that graced the stage.
However, nobody brought the house down as hard as Nicki Minaj and Beyonce when they performed their song “Feeling Myself.”
Nicki kicked off the song by herself and was joined by Beyonce soon after. The audience could hardly handle all the awesomeness.
The performance included group dance battles, curve-hugging costumes and perfect poses. What else could you ask for?
Clearly excited with the results, Nicki said “it was epic.”
“Oh my god, when Beyonce came out, you could feel it,” the rapper told ET backstage after the performance. “It was electrifying. The place went nuts. It was like shaking, like, it was so insane — and I was excited as a fan, too. Like, I was excited that they were about to experience this, because both of our fans have been threatening us online, saying that if we didn’t perform together, they were going to hunt us down.”
“I feel like great women always raise the bar for each other and, so, it’s always great,” Nicki added. “I learn so much for her, and I genuinely like her. Whenever we smile on stage, it’s genuine. Um, I really, really love her. I mean, what else can I say? I think it’s great for women in general.”
