Falls Festival are celebrating their 25th birthday this year, and for the occasion have locked in an insanely juicy line-up, with a few surprises up their sleeves.
Falls Festival are celebrating their silver jubilee with huge line-up for 2017/2018, including Flume, Fleet Foxes and Glass Animals.
Leading the line-up is Flume, who told triple J he’s “currently working on a whole bunch of new ideas, bits and pieces” and will “hopefully we’ll be able to play a bunch” at the festivals. These will be his only performances over the New Year period.
The same can be said for fellow bill-toppers Glass Animals, who are among a huge list of internationals playing the festival, including Run The Jewels, The Kooks, Everything Everything, Foster The People, Fleet Foxes, Vince Staples, D.R.A.M., Flint Eastwood, and Liam Gallagher, who sneakily announced the news yesterday.
Falls 2017/2018 will not be without its usual long list of great local acts, with the likes of Dune Rats, DZ Deathrays, The Smith Street Band, Methyl Ethel, D.D Dumbo, Julia Jacklin and Winston Surfshirt.
Some new things for Falls this year: bars will now be cash and pay-wave enabled, meaning you can leave drink tokens behind; and, for the second instalment of the Falls Downtown in WA, the festival has moved location from Fremantle’s Kings Square to the Fremantle Oval Precinct.
