The much anticipated line-up of one of Australia’s largest festivals has dropped. The first announcement of the lineup for the Falls Music and Arts Festival is music to festival goers ears with some huge names set to rock the 2015/16 stage(s).
Along with UK indie rockers Bloc Party headlining in the lead up to releasing new material, the Foals will also be tagging along as headliners, not far off from the release of their new album What Went Down. Keeping the crowd bopping around during the New Year will also be Disclosure, Django Django, Toro Y Moi, Gary Clark Jr. & The Maccabees.
South Australian Icon Paul Kelly will bring his Merri Soul Sessions show along for the ride amongst other Australian artists including, Meg Mac, Birds of Tokyo, Hilltop Hoods, King Gizzards And The Wizard Lizard, Seth Sentry and Gang Of Youths.
The opening night show will this year be staged by satirist Weird Al Yankovich and Art VS Science.
The West Coast won’t be missing out on any of the festival fun with the 2016 Southbound Festival hosting an almost identical lineup in Busselton, Western Australia from January 8th – January 10th.
