Headlining this year is Australia's leading lady on the decks, the sensational HAVANA BROWN bringing her modern-day renaissance woman stylings to the Harbour Party stage. An icon for the dreamchaser generation, Havana has been a meteoric force on the dance and DJ scene both here and abroad, ever since she went supernova with her first single – a little gem by the name of We Run the Night. The already phenomenally successful DJ has been mounting a no-holds-barred assault on charts as well as dance floors all across the world, making appearances at Korea's ABU TV Song Festival (where she represented Australia), the Spring Groove Festival in Tokyo, France's Fun Radio concert in front of a capacity crowd at Palais Onisports de Paris-Bercy, and for millions of viewers on America's Got Talent. With her debut album Flashing Lights set to drop later this October this dynamo of a DJ and dance artist will no doubt tear up the Big Top stage.
One of the USA's leading exports in house music, IAN CAREY also joins the Harbour Party 2013 line-up. A mullti-platinum artist with multiple worldwide top 10 hits, including smashes such as Rise, Last Night and Get Shaky, Ian Carey has sold millions of records across every format. He's DJ'ed in over 50 countries, produces the biggest, baddest house anthems AND runs his own label – GFAB Records.

TIMMY TRUMPET is officially Australia's busiest DJ, ranking in the top 3 DJ's in Australia's InTheMix Awards, averaging 7 flights a week, and juggling over 200 shows per year, including major festivals and international super clubs.
