Falls Festival is back with a vengeance, and although the most prominent spotlight is on the musical performances, we can't dismiss the brilliance of the arts program. Late last week Falls announced their arts lineup, with the official 2016/2017 schedule including interpretive dance routines, circus acrobatics, interactive activities, installations that audiences can participate in, and more.
The Festival traditionally commences with a themed party night. This year's theme is "All Gold Everything" - think gold-plated, gold bling, and gold glitter.
MARION BAY: THE VILLAGE
Tasmania's round includes circus performances, interpretative dance offs, rock bands, soul duos, Ukraine accordion maestros, dance parties, beauty salons, face painting craft stations, yoga sessions, interactive kinetic sculptures, BBQ punk bands, story telling, treasure hunts, etc.
Western Australia's round focuses on participatory installations, where the public can interact with many roving activities, including festival markets, beauty salons, and temporary tattoos.
LORNE: THE VILLAGE
Victoria's sold out round features burlesque performances, dance parties, sketch comedy shows, and both Australian and international music acts in a variety of hip-hop, jazz, opera, and punk. There will be morning yoga sessions, beauty salons, Latina dance sessions, karaoke and glam-bulances.
In its third year, Rancho Relaxo is Fall's homegrown lifestyle precinct, with an eclectic offering of craft, yoga, and dance workshops, divine massage parlours, live music, markets, health-food options and silent disco nights.
BYRON BAY: THE GROVE
New South Wales' round boasts a cultural hit, including freestyle rhymes, physical comedy, circus, magic, hip-hop dance workshops, puppetry, burlesque, samba soul sessions, morning yoga, Russian choirs, 80's flash mob troupes, rom-com stand-up, folk and bluegrass bands, cabaret, rappers, and French songstresses.
Not only is Falls Festival bursting with incredible musical performances, but with a unique, memorable, and eclectic arts lineup that's not be missed.
