Holy crap it looks like it’s going to be one helluva good new year’s eve in Marion Bay and Lorne at the Falls Festival come December 31st: try kicking of 2011 with Public Enemy playing Fear of a Black Planet in full; getting your nu-rave on to Klaxons and The Rapture; breaking out the camel toe in your favourite spandex unitard with Peaches; and just chilling with some of your favourite local acts. Brusselton WA will host the Soundbound festival and Sunset Sounds in Brisbane follow up Falls’ New Year’s Eve spectacular with the same buffet of musical delights.

Feast your eyes on these apples:
