Dance music fans have put on their brightest clothes for a one night only music festival.

The international festival Palm Tree hit Sydney on Friday night, seeing thousands of Aussies flock to Olympic Park to see world famous DJs Tiësto and Kygo.

The massive music event kicked off at 7pm at Sydney Showground but many attendees were already heading into the venue by 4pm.

Standard tickets set revellers back $165 to see performances from Frank Walker, Sam Feldt and Lost Frequencies before the night ended with headline acts Kygo and Tiësto.

The festival dress code was all things bright, glittery and colourful.

The Palm Tree music festival was only in Sydney for one day. 

Organisers will head to Brisbane on Saturday followed by Melbourne Showground on Sunday, which coincides with Victoria’s public holiday longweekend.

All three shows are set to feature the same highly-anticipated lineup. 

‘Developed by Kygo, Palm Tree Music Festival is inspired by the bonds and memories forged with friends from years of touring around the world,’ Palm Tree said of the Sydney event.

‘With past events in The Hamptons New York, Cabo Mexico and Novalja Croatia, ready your crew and get set to make your own memories with this one-of-a-kind music event.’

The night ended with a set from Dutch DJ Tiësto, one of the biggest names in electronic music in the world for the past two decades.  

He initially got mainstream attention back in 2000 with his remix of Delerium’s ‘Silence’. 

Recent hits include ‘The Business’ in 2020 and 2022’s Charlie XCX collaboration ‘Hot In It’.
