International Women's Day
Looking for some sweet tunes this International Women's Day? We've got you covered
Music / Just announced
If you have any other plans for New Year's this year cancel them, because once again Falls Festival has dropped a bangin' lineup to help you farewell 2019 and welcome 2020 in style.
If this year’s Falls Festival lineup wasn’t already ridiculous enough, they’ve gone and added a stack more bands to the lineup. New Year’s plans are well and truly sorted.
Already blessed with an incredible stack of international and Australian music whizzes, Falls Festival is once again taking the festival to a whole new level by adding a stack of topnotch artists spread across all four locations in Lorne, Marion Bay, Byron Bay and Fremantle.
The stunning surrounds of Lorne in Victoria will be blessed with a blast of sparkling additions including indie dance groovers Northeast Party House, electronic wunderkind Just A Gent, Sydney legend Mickey Kojack, janglers The Gooch Palms and heaps more.
Down in Tassie’s Marion Bay you’ll be blessed with the presence of Melbourne singer-songwriter Alex Lahey, sister act Kinder, international DJ Dena Amy, Brisbane pop-punks Bugs and lyrical onslaught Wombat.
Surf rock pals Goons of Doom are set to supercharge Falls in Byron Bay, rolling in with their mates Mini Skirt and Israeli Chicks who will bring a blast of guitar-based fun.
Not to be forgotten are our friends in Fremantle, where neo-soul locals Butter, synth mates Gazey and up and comers Jack Davies and the Bush Chooks will bring the charm Downtown.

Heading right around the country and hitting every Falls Festival stop along the way is Atlanta rapper Playboi Carti alongside Aussie rockers Bad//Dreems, the incredible Montaigne, shredders Holy Holy, and DJ/producer Wave Racer. With a stack of top-notch new music flowing out of this group (including a couple of our albums of the year), Falls Festival just got a whole lot bigger.
But wait – there is more. B Wise is in, as are A Swayze and The Ghost, Adrian Eagle, and Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers. Four artists who have all been applauded for the calibre of their live shows.
Each stop is also getting their own personalised injection of musical goodies too. Which could really end up being the deciding factor for where you end up when the clock strikes midnight and 2019 becomes 2020.
In Byron Bay, Tash Sultana will throw down their hazy, sun-soaked guitar mastery alongside Thundamentals, Cosmo’s Midnight and Concrete Surfers.
Over in Lorne, we already know party started What So Not is throwing down a much-hyped exclusive set, but now we also know he’ll be accompanied by indie-pop darlings The Jungle Giants, groovy boys Lime Cordiale and the happiest dude in Aussie hip hop Kwame.
Marion Bay is sure to go off, with huge additions including Illy, local heroes Luca Brasi and Kat Edwards, who will be joining Aus rock’s cool dads Wolfmother.
And finally in Fremantle –where the New Year ticks over a little later than the rest of the Falls Festival stops – Lime Cordiale will head across the country to jump back on the Falls stage, with Sampa The Great and Sly Withers also joining in on the port-side New Year celebrations.
So there you go – now it’s really time to decide where you’re headed when New Year’s rolls around. Big decisions will be made, but quality music times await wherever you land.
We know you’ve been waiting as eagerly as we have, so we’re stoked to finally be able to share with you the HUGE 2019/2020 Falls Festival lineup.
For the last 27 years, punters have been ringing in their New Year’s with Falls Festival, and every year they have managed to exceed even our lofty expectations, but this year is a special one because we’re ready to farewell another decade – another tumultuous, memorable decade – and there is no better way to welcome the Roaring Twenties than arm-in-arm with your best friends, singing along with the lot Falls Festival have pulled together for us.
Halsey (only Aus shows) · Vampire Weekend · Disclosure · Peking Duk · Of Monsters and Men · Pnau · Lewis Capaldi · Milky Chance · John Farnham · Banks (only Aus shows) · Dope Lemon · Vera Blue · Yungblud · G Flip · Crooked Colours · Parcels · Thelma Plum · #1 Dads · Waax · Baker Boy · Psychedelic Porn Crumpets · Amyl & The Sniffers · The Japanese House · Pink Sweat$ · Good Doogs · Cxloe · Totty
But that’s not all, because each city also has a very special guest ready to add a little something extra to your weekend.
That’s right, you get to sing along to ‘You’re The Voice’ and ‘Someone You Loved’ in the same weekend. Dance along with our ultimate bop queen Halsey and spend a night boogeying with rockers Vampire Weekend. Be thrilled by both England (Disclosure) and Australia’s (Peking Duk) best duos in electronic music. That’s only scratching the surface. We haven’t gotten to the incredible host of local Australian music on offer (so many huge 2019 singles and albums in this list). And as always there are loads more acts to be announced, which means that this list is only going to keep getting better.
So, in summary, Falls Festival 2019/2020 absolutely rules.
Well, here we have it, folks. The 26th annual Falls Festival lineup is finally here and we cannot contain ourselves. It seems like the Falls team have done it again and have given us a corker of a lineup. We won’t keep you waiting any longer so read ‘em and weep.
