The Falls Festival line-up for 2017/18 is here, and boy, it’s a big one. Following on from yesterday’s announcement that former Oasis member, Liam Gallagher, would be appearing at the New Year’s festival, the rest of the massive roster has been released.
Topping the bill for the 25th anniversary of Falls Festival is a home-grown hero, Flume. Having not performed at home since December 2016, these shows will be Flume’s only Australian appearances for 2017. UK indie rock band, Glass Animals, are another Falls-exclusive addition to this year’s line-up.
One artist getting a lot of attention on social media over their addition to the line-up is none other than Daryl Braithwaite. That’s right, the singer of karaoke favourite Horses will be gracing us with his presence this summer.
The line-up features an impressive selection of international heavyweights, including Run The Jewels, Fleet Foxes, Angus & Julia Stone, The Kooks, Everything Everything, and Vince Staples. The festival isn’t short on local talent either, with The Smith Street Band, Methyl Ethyl, The Jungle Giants, Allday, and DZ Deathrays all listed in the announcement. With loads more artists yet to be announced, this year’s instalment of the festival is shaping up to be one of the biggest yet.
In addition to the stellar musical bill, you’ll find visual art performances, beach access, comedy clubs, holistic yoga and wellbeing, beauty parlours, and gourmet food stalls.
This year’s Falls Festival will take place in all the usual locations – Byron Bay in NSW, Lorne in Victoria, Freemantle in WA, and Marion Bay in Tassie. For those planning to attend the Freo leg, this year’s festival will be held at the Fremantle Oval Precinct, due to the Kings Square redevelopment.
General release tickets for Falls Festival 2017/18 will go on sale Tuesday 29 August, at 9 am AEST, and presales will be available to Friends of Falls and Optus Perks members. Peep the full line-up below, and jump on over the fallsfestival.com to find out more!
