Amelie Lens is the first artist to be unveiled for the 2019 instalment of Carl Cox and Hardware Group's Babylon Festival in Australia.

The event teased a photo of the Belgian heavy-hitter from behind the decks, hands raised as she faces out towards the floor, on Instagram with the caption: "Some big artist announcements coming next week. First round line-up drops on August 8th."

Babylon hits the dusty plains of Carapooee West, near The Grampians mountain range, about three hours outside Melbourne, from February 14-17.

Last year, Laurent Garnier, Atish, Giorgia Angiuli, Dax J and Deborah De Luca played the techno and psy-centric event's second year.
