Got plans for New Year's? Cancel them, because Falls Fest are gearing up to announce one heck of an All-Australian treat!
**UPDATE: In a social media post, Falls Festival have announced that their 2020/21 event will no longer go ahead. Read their statement below:
There is one thing we can be certain of, Falls Festival will be back this summer.
“As Australia heads towards the recovery phase of COVID-19 we have decided to move forward with optimism, and work towards presenting our Dec 2020/Jan 2021 event in a way that will best bolster Australia’s live music industry,” organisers Jess and Paul said in a letter to fans.
The annual festival has announced a special edition for this New Years, pulling together an all-Australian lineup for stops in Lorne, Byron Bay, Marion Bay, and Fremantle.
“We have some of the most exciting acts in the world and this special “homegrown” edition of Falls will ensure that money stays in our local economy, providing maximum financial benefit for the Australian music community – artists, management, crew, agents, roadies, production etc – as well as the thousands of contractors and suppliers who rely on our events for their income,” they said.
“Falls Festival will also raise funds for Support Act which provides essential services to our music industry workers. Support Act has been inundated with requests recently from workers who have been severely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.”
We don’t have any news on when a lineup might drop but keep your eyes locked here for updates as they arrive.
Of course, the internet has heated up with rumours (including what could be some very very exciting reunions) so, if anything, Falls Festival is currently providing some very necessary water cooler chats.
More to come soon.
