It’s six down sixty to go as the state spanning Falls Music & Arts Festival tease a sextet of acts for their 2011 lineup. Headlined by UK juggernauts Arctic Monkeys, the festival flexes its diversity with US comedian Arj Barker (Flight of The Conchords), dub re-appropriators Easy Star All Stars performing their take on Pink Floyd classic Dark Side Of The Moon, beardy folk rockers Fleet Foxes, Split Enz alumni Tim Finn and Sydney world beaters The Jezabels.

Falls takes place three days from December 29, 2011 in Marion Bay Tasmania (all ages), and four days from December 28, 2011 in Lorne, Victoria (18+ event).

Tickets will be allocated from the ballot which you can subscribe for at www.fallsfestival.com.au before it closes on August 5th 2011. General public tickets will go on sale August 17th 2011.
