Childish Gambino Playing Falls Festival + Dates Announced

New Years 2016 – 2017 is looking bloody amazing for hip-hop fans, and we’re only a few days into the festival announcements. Not only has Chance the Rapper been announced for Perth’s Origin NYE, but now Falls Festival has announced the return of Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, to head up the event which takes place across Byron Bay, Marion Bay, Lorne and for the first time, Fremantle.

Childish Gambino is no strange to Australian festivals; last year he delivered a rambunctious set at Listen Out, and he previously ripped Splendour in the Grass 2014 a new one. As to exactly where he’ll playing on NYE is anyone’s guess for now, but considering he’s set to drop new release PHAROS later this year, and previously announced that its debut at his own festival in Joshua Tree would be his only performance for 2016, we will be among the very first in the world to hear his new music live.

The Falls Festival 2016-2017 dates are as follows:

Lorne VIC: Dec 28, Dec 29, Dec 30, Dec 31
Marion Bay TAS: Dec 29, Dec 30, Dec 31 (ALL AGES)
Byron Bay NSW: Dec 31, Jan 01, Jan 02
Fremantle WA: Jan 07, Jan 08
The full Falls Festival lineup comes out on August 23 – so get ready, it’s looking to be huge. Watch the teaser video below:
