Like a cold ice-cream on a perfect summer day, Falls Festival are sprinkling a little sugar on their already sweet 2018 / 2019 line-up, scattering 100’s and 1000’s on every stop and popping a Flake into the party with new national and international drawcards galore.
Joining the travelling road show at all Falls stops will be buzzing Chicago-based rapper Juice WRLD with his massive tune ‘Lucid Dreams’ and fresh album WRLD On Drugs which dropped last Friday! Grime kingpin Dizzee Rascal with hits ‘Dance Wiv Me’, ‘Bonkers’ and ‘Holiday’ and former MS MR front-woman and transformative pop genius LPX. Electro legends Cut Copy will light up dancefloors on East Coast shows only.
Also dotted throughout the various line-ups in Lorne, Marion Bay, Byron Bay and Fremantle will be top class local and national talent ready to share the stage with already announced heavyweights like Anderson.Paak and the Free Nationals, Catfish And The Bottlemen, Chvrches, Amy Shark, Interpol and so much more.
The beautiful Otway Rainforest of Lorne will see the addition of indie-folk sweeteners Little May, Melbourne-based troublemakers / recent Rough Trade signees Amyl & the Sniffers and rapidly rising punk rockers Slowly Slowly.
Marion Bay will also get a sniff of Amyl in addition to recent Future Classic superstar Hayden James and hard touring folkster Ziggy Alberts.
Our friends in Byron Bay will welcome the girls from Little May, be serenaded by local busking breakout Garett Kato and get down to a set from notorious Blue Mountains party-startersHermitude (DJ set).
Not to forget Falls’ newest offshoot Falls Fremantle: they’ll be given the pleasure of Dean Lewis’ company. The Sydney songwriter is responsible for the viral hit ‘Be Alright’ which is currently making waves worldwide with his stunning voice. They’ll also be enthralled by local gem Carla Geneve who will cap off a huge year by showcasing her honest, ethereal song writing.
With Lorne already sold-out, it’s time to get your skates on – grab your ticket to Marion Bay, Byron Bay or Fremantle now and lock in your plans to kick off 2019 in style.
