Amyl and the Sniffers, Swedish DJ Eric Prydz and Jessie Ware are also part of the series.
The Victorian government said the first Always Live events in 2022 delivered more than $80 million to the local economy.
Program director Matt Gudinski said live music is part of what makes Melbourne great.
“An event like ALWAYS Live is what makes our great city what it is,” he said.
“(It) ensures Victoria remains the music capital of Australia.”
The event’s program is now available on the Always Live website, with more acts to be announced in the upcoming months.
