SHIT YEAH: The 1st Falls Festival Lineup Is Here And It’s Certified Dope

What could be better than spending New Year’s Eve suffocating in a crowd of tens of thousands of strangers who are happily foregoing showering after spending all day alternating between running around in the hot summer sun and marinating in the unique aroma of a drop toilet? 

Wait, I phrased that terribly, I mean: what could be better than spending New Year’s Eve seeing a bunch of awesome bands and camping with a bunch of your mates? That, but with flushing toilets, probably.
Falls Festival is a dope way to both ring out and ring in the previous year and the coming year respectively and, if you weren’t already enticed by the announcement of Childish Gambino and London Grammar as headliners, here are a bunch more excuses for you to buy a $40 tent from Kmart and RSVP “no” to a bunch of slightly disappointing NYE house parties. The first lineup drop is HERE:
Childish Gambino (no sideshows)
London Grammar (no sideshows)
The Avalanches
Violent Soho
