The Falls Festival 2018 line-up is here!
It's that time of year where your group chat is working overtime trying to decide what plans to make for the most overrated night of the year, when you change your calendar from 2017 to 2018. If a road trip and a playlist of some of the best international and local bands were on your NYE radar, then you're in luck. Falls Festival, the pinnacle of Australian New Year's Eve festivals announced their line-up today, and for their 25th birthday, they've pulled out the big ones.
Electronic prodigy, Flume will be exclusively headlining the series of shows in Lorne, Marion Bay, Fremantle and Byron Bay. Joining Flume on the roster is Grammy nominated folk band Fleet Foxes, Run the Jewels and The Kooks. You can sit on the grassy knoll and listen to the sweet sweet voices of Julia Jacklin and Alex Lahey by day, and join the sweaty mess of punters dancing to Peking Duk and Cosmos Midnight by night. Special consideration goes out to Aussie royalty, Daryl Braithwaite - we're hoping his set will be one hour of 'The Horses' on repeat.
