The last act is announced! Mayfest has revealed the final Main Stage artist for Dillo Day 2016-  Australian singer, songwriter, and producer Hayden James.

Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Hayden James released his first track in early 2013, circulating among the masses and reaching well into the millions of plays on Soundcloud and YouTube. His individualistic approach to producing summer jams featuring euphonious and evocative vocals quickly allowed him to find his niche. Nowadays, Hayden has been titled the “face of the new Australian production scene.”

“Something About You”, Hayden’s top 40 hit

Hayden’s first single “Permission to Love” accumulated global praise and recognition, hitting #1 on Hype Machine as well as becoming the most played track on Australia’s most reputable national broadcasting giant, Triple J. His hit single, “Something About You,” hit certified Gold sales within Australia and reached the top 40 throughout Europe. Since the release of “Something About You,” he has toured all over Europe and the U.S., playing Coachella, Lollapalooza, a support tour with Odesza, and more.

Mayfest is thrilled to bring Hayden James to Dillo Day this year, and expects his tracks to bring a fun, upbeat vibe to the Lakefill.
