Only a week out of the Splendour in the Grass muddiness, and we’re already getting ready for the biggest and best new years celebration in the country, Falls Music & Arts Festival.
The Falls Festival lineup has just dropped on Triple J, and it is IMMENSE. Highlights include UK megalith Foals, who will be dropping their new album What Went Down later this year, Disclosure who are slated to release sophomore LP Caracal next month, Bloc Party, Toro Y Moi and Kurt Vile and the Violators. The absolute best of the best of Australian music will also be in tow, featuring Paul Kelly, Seth Sentry, Little May, Rufus, King Gizzard, Courtney Barnett and loads more!
You can currently enter the ticket ballot here – considering that this is likely to sell out immediately, we highly recommend doing so before closing on August 14. A general sale will follow for those who miss out, taking place at 9 am on August 26.
