+ LOADS MORE TO BE ANNOUNCED
Leading the charge in 2019/20 will be newly minted pop royalty and recent Rolling Stone cover megastar Halsey (for her only Australian shows!), NYC’s hugely important hit making heroes hot off the back of new album Father Of The Bride Vampire Weekend, English house icons Disclosure with their massive hits ‘Latch’, ‘Omen’ and latest banger ‘Talk’, plus super fun pop legends come stage slaying stars Peking Duk!
Add these huge names to a tectonic first announce which includes plenty more irresistible fruit, including those joyous Icelandic architects of anthem Of Monsters And Men, future hall of famers and festival masters Pnau with their slew of #1 dance-floor starters ‘Chameleon’, ‘Go Bang’ and ‘Changes’, multi-platinum British lung buster / heartbreaker fresh from his famous Glastonbury set Lewis Capaldi, smooth German hook guru’s Milky Chance and downright dazzling LA alt-pop Queen BANKS.
There’ll even be a special appearance from Whispering Jack himself as the one and only John Farnham shows us all a thing or two in his first appearance on Falls’ hallowed stages. Look for his rendition of ‘You’re The Voice’ to sit right next to Daryl Braithwaite’s 2017 performance of ‘Horses’ in the pantheon of magical Falls moments.
Also dropping in for single shows are Falls’ signature guests! Tash Sultana (appearing as our special guest in Byron Bay) will be showcasing the multi instrumental talents that have made her an international star; What So Not taking his humungous live show to Lorne; Matt Corby arriving on-stage fresh from the release of last year’s breathtaking Rainbow Valley and appearing on the Fremantle leg; popping up in Marion Bay – the crater creating riffs of the untouchable Wolfmother.
After introducing a beefed-up arts program last year which included all manner of performances, activations, installations and curiosities strewn throughout the sites of each stop, Falls will again level up in 2019/20. This year, as every year, organisers will expand in scope as they simultaneously narrow their focus to provide each punter with the best possible festival experience. From humble beginnings in Lorne 27 years ago, Falls has grown to become the absolute gold standard of Australian festivals. Thousands flock to famous coastal locations to enjoy a New Year’s filled with camping, nature, music and unforgettable memories.
Tickets on Sale 9am, Wednesday 14 August (VISA pre-sale Monday 12 August)
