The Falls Music & Arts Festival stands out from the usj of music galas where orange-hued shirtless muscle-bound creatures accompanied by bottle-blond equally apricot-coloured girlfriends define the order of the day and night to endless synthetic beats. It’s all in the delivery. It’s about getting back to nature and enjoying the environment while advocating awareness of sustainability. Falls places a strong focus on arts and culture, with workshops, programmes and creative ways to entertain the mind, body and soul. As the same organisers of Splendour in the Grass, we’re pretty darn lucky for such a cultural experience. The music is a dimension in itself – and especially so with this upcoming line-up.
The 2015-2016 edition of Falls Festival has landed with a great big behemothic - and slightly British - thump. UK-inese Disclosure, Bloc Party and Foal bring the celebration down under to VIC’s Lorne, TAS’ Marion Bay and NSW’s Byron Bay for an epic affair. The line-up has a distinctly premium international flavor with French producer The Avener and downtempo popper Toro Y Moi also onboard. Native numens RUFUS, Art Vs Science, Birds of Tokyo, Kurt Vile and the Violators, Django Django, Mac Demarco, Hilltop Hoods and Courtney Barnett are all prepared for the plunge. Scroll down for the full line-up.
Falls Festival kicks off in Lorne, VIC December 28, Marion Bay, TAS December 29 and Byron Bay, NSW December 31, running across three to four nights in each location.
General ticket sales for those who miss out on the ballot commence 9am, Wednesday August 26 from here.
