Still planning your New Years festivities? Need a fix for your crippling live music addiction?
Falls Festival has you covered. Thanks to the site receiving a capacity increase, 2,500 more tickets are available to buy right now.
The capacity increase approval comes after the North Byron Parklands home of Falls Festival and Splendour In The Grass was given the A-OK to continue hosting both festivals for another 20 months by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment (DP&E). What does this all mean? There will be more people ready for a groove in the mosh.
The good news continues – Falls Festival has added even more acts to its already zesty lineup with the addition of the triple j Unearthed winners. Coming to us live is the Brisbane band WAAX, the nostalgic vibes of Wafia, Adelaide rockers West Thebarton, new kid on the block Manu Crooks, soul soaked Alice Ivy, and double trouble the Party Dozen.
Each of the four stops – Marion, Lorne, Freemantle and Byron – will receive a different Unearthed winner to play at the festival and it’s a pretty diverse mix. For us in Byron Bay, we are blessed with the infectious tunes of a trio of boyish Brisbane blokes, Bugs, who categorise themselves under the allusive genre known as ‘noise’. You’ll have to come find out for yourself.
All these newbies join a main lineup that includes those essential to any Aussie festival; Flume, Peking Duk, Dune Rats, Daryl Braithwaite and the Smith Street Band.
The countdown to the new year is on. See you there rocking out in all your glitter and gumboots glory.
