The big one is the Big Day Out (wikipedia page), touring yearly from mid January till early February in various cities. (Note that it's already sold out for Sydney and the Gold Coast, and I'm seeing that the tickets for other cities only went on sale just today, so I wouldn't be too surprised if those won't last for very long either.)
I'm sure there's other more local events, but not really my scene, so I'm afraid I don't know about them.

Good Vibrations is another good one in sydney - normally around February - I got to see James Brown there last year :) It's mostly dance music but they have a good mix and the crown are really up for it :)

In Sydney - there are loads of things that go on The Domain and Hyde Park - you should google them

Mumba :)

The Falls festival is another one. I've never been to it, but as far as I know it isn't dance music but attracts a lot of people every year. Tickets always sell out a maxium of a couple of days after they are released for sale and then the only way to get tickets is by paying up to $400 from some person trying to make a quick buck in the paper.

They have one over new years that lasts a couple of days a fair distance out of Hobart/Tasmania. Last time I heard they also had a Falls festival on the Victorian coastline somewhere. Do a google search for "Falls Festival" and you should find information on it.
