Got your tickets to Falls Festival burning a hole on your fridge door? Staring menacingly at you with their glorious promise of fun to come?
Your New Year’s Party™ just got even more packed to the brim with musical goodness.
The lovely folk at Falls have gone absolutely berko today, cramming an eye-watering 29 new acts into the already stacked AF lineup.
On all east coast shows, the rolling tide of good times known as the Northeast Party House will join Spit Syndicate and yung Brisbane lyrical dynamo Mallrat.
In Byron Bay only, it’ll be The Middle Kids, UK trio HAELOS, singer-songwriter Hein Cooper, and DJ Dena Amy jumping up for a nice time.
Meanwhile down in Tassie, Marion Bay is scoring a visit from Aus rock royalty in the form of You Am I, who’ll join Angus Stone‘s solo project Dope Lemon, Kingswood, and Moonbase Commander to help ring in the new year, island-style.
But it’s the Lorne stop on the trip that’s copping the most love, with a staggering 25 fresh faces joining the lineup.
Cop this lot, why don’t you! *inhales deeply*: Olympia, Gretta Ray, Hockey Dad, Just A Gent, Kari Faux (from the promised land of LA!), Baro, Jack River, Good Boy, KLP, Feki, Kilter, Generik, Baytek, ex-Powderfinger guitarist Darren Middleton, Willow Beats, BEL, Sahara Beck, along with The Middle Kids, HAELOS, Hein Cooper, Moonbase Commander, and the I OH YOU DJs.
God DAMN. If that ain’t enough to put a fire in yr step, you’d best check yr pulse.
All those acts join festival headliners Childish Gambino, London Grammar, The Avalanches, Violent Soho, Grandmaster Flash, Alison Wonderland, and a fucktonne more.
Both Lorne and Byron Bay are well sold-out, but if you’re keen to skip down to the wonderland known as Tasmania, tickets are still available.
Festival organisers are also promising more acts to be announced for the inaugural Fremantle leg of the tour as well.
