Falls Festival 2013 Line-Up Announced

FallsFestival_SerenaHo-Fiesta-1200px

The 2013 FALLS FESTIVAL line-up has finally dropped. Yep. We were awake at 8am listening to Triple J breakfast just so that we could impart the all-important news to you loyalists. We know, we know, we’re pretty generous. 

They’ve recently expanded into NSW (Byron Bay = way shorter road trip for us Sydneysiders) after 17 years of our favourite music and arts festival. It’ll be a chilled way to spend your New Years: just you, a tent, loads of big name acts, and thousands of punters drinking and eating gozleme for three days in one of three locations; Byron Bay, Marion Bay and Lorne.

Last year we were wooed by The Flaming Lips and Best Coast. This year the line-up has your expected mix of indie and electronic bands, plus a few hip-hop acts thrown in for good measure. There’ll also be comedians and other arty-farty spoils. Better start saving, you’ll need a bit of dosh to get your hands on a three-day pass. It will of course be worth it.

About:

Hannah’s best friend describes her writing as 'like Hunter S. Thompson, except less engaging and less good.' Her boyfriend says she’s 'a good writer, but couldn’t beat Ernest Hemingway in a fight.' Apt. If you want a healthy dose of shoegaze, look no further.
