Twenty new names enter the fray.
Falls Festival has added a heap of additional acts to its already stacked line-up, announcing more than 20 names.
The festival has four versions that all take place over the New Year’s period spanning NSW, Tasmania, Victoria and WA, and is headlined by Vampire Weekend, Halsey, Disclosure and John Farnham (we’ve put the full list below, if you need a reminder).
As of today, Falls has another top-billed name: US rapper Playboi Carti. Also joining him at each stop are Bad//Dreems, Holy Holy, Wave Racer, Montaigne, B Wise, Adrian Eagle, A. Swayze & The Ghost and Teen Jesus and The Jean Teasers. And as announced last month, Good Doogs will no longer play Falls.
Each Falls are getting a handful of exclusive sets too. In Byron Bay, Thundamentals, Cosmo’s Midnight and Concrete Surfers join the fray, alongside previously announced exclusive Tash Sultana.
Meanwhile, Lorne gets The Jungle Giants, Lime Cordiale and Kwame, joining an exclusive set from EDM king What So Not. Tasmania has scored sets from Illy, Kat Edwards and local heroes Luca Brasi, with Wolfmother already announced.
Fremantle also gets a set from Lime Cordiale, while Sampa The Great and Sly Withers join in on the fun. Matt Corby was a previously announced exclusive.
