Prepare yourself for an involuntary squeal of excitement as you feast your eyes on the fricken fantastic line up for Falls Festival this New Year.
The Falls Festival committee have announced that even more acts will be joining the starting line up, so you’d better start packing and planning for all the inconspicuous ways to bottle your juice - sunscreen anyone? 😏
To save you the trouble of frantically searching for dates we’ve compiled a quick reference guide for all you party people. Bad news for all you youngsters, all four festival sites are 18+ events, sorry.
Lorne VIC: 28 Dec, 29 Dec, 30 Dec, 31 Dec
Marion Bay TAS: 29 Dec, 30 Dec, 31 Dec
Byron Bay NSW: 31 Dec, 01 Jan, 02 Jan
Fremantle WA: 06 Jan, 07 Jan
So, without further ado, our top five picks from this year’s Fall Festival line up are:
Well I’m bias because these guys are my favourite band of all time, but to have them come to Australia is unreal! It’s been nearly two years since these Indie Brit pop-rock Gods graced our shores, and they’re sure to put some Shine On the the festival grounds.
If you and your mates haven’t blasted Braithwaite’s Horses at full volume at pre-drinks, you haven’t pre-drunk properly. A true blue Aussie, Braithwaite is a must see. His performance is sure to be a hands in the air, swaying in unison kind of set. You’ll kick yourself if you were somewhere else, or face down in a ditch 100m from your tent.
We wouldn’t be doing any list justice without getting pumped for our local Adelaide boys to take the stage at Falls. One thing is for certain, the mosh will be absolutely hectic for Bad//Dreems, and it’s sure to peak at Mob Rule. Radelaidians unite for a heaps good performance by these lads.
You more than likely know this Manchester born muso from his days in Oasis, when he produced their smash hit Wonderwall - an absolute classic. His performance will be one to remember, that’s for sure, as his stage presence is energetic and unlikely anything you will have seen before.
Get ready for Coachella. Lollapalooza and Ultra vibes, as this Aussie girl has performed at all these festivals and more. Having collaborated with artists like Flume (who is also performing at Falls!!), and Tommy Trash, Lunoe’s set is going to be an electronic dance music sensation.
