Megan Thee Stallion is heading to the land down under for the first time ever. The Houston lyricist will be headlining Australia’s Festival X, a five-date touring festival that also boasts Don Toliver and Calvin Harris as additional headliners.
The festival will kick off at Melbourne’s Flemington Racecourse on November 26, followed by a show at the Alabaster Sports Field in the Gold Coast on November 27. From there the fest will head to Adelaide’s Bonython Park on December 2, followed by two final performances at the Sydney Showground and Burswood Park in Sydney and Perth on December 3 and 4. This will be the first Festival X to transpire since the festival took an indefinite pause in 2020 due to the pandemic.

Megan Thee Stallion will be hitting the festival circuit heavy this summer. She just wrapped headlining performances at the Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama and at Preakness Live at Baltimore’s Preakness Stake, and she’ll soon hit Spain’s Primavera Sound on June 8 and 11.
The “Thot Shit” rapper will also have to make a court appearance this summer related to her ongoing criminal trial against Tory Lanez. Meg and the Canadian rapper are expected to appear again in court on August 17, with the trial set to begin on September 14. Lanez, who is being criminally charged with shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the foot after leaving a party in July 2020, faces a maximum sentence of 22 years if convicted.
Meg recently told CBS Mornings that no matter how the trial turns out, this experience has changed her.
“I feel like my anxiety is worse,” she confessed. “I feel like my relationship with people is – has gotten very cold ‘cause I’m not as trusting as I used to be. Like, I got this wall and I don’t want to make any friends. And I’m trying to be as nice as I can to everybody.
“New people, I probably won’t even hold a conversation longer than 30 minutes ‘cause I feel like every time I’m talking, I’m on the verge of tears and I don’t want to have to explain to strangers why I’m crying.”
