Falls Festival 2009/2010
Marrying the forked tongue wit and guttersnipe humor of The Libertines with the melodic nous of The Buzzcocks and Oasis, The View – one of the latest groups from the UK to be touted as “the next big thing” – are bringing their infectious sounds to Australia for the 2009/2010 festival season.
It is fitting that Andrew Bird’s last name should share the name of a flighty creature, many breeds of which migrate to follow the seasons.
Kid Sam are two similarly named cousins from Melbourne, Kieran and Kishore Ryan. Their music carries with it a unique aesthetic that draws on elements of post rock and ambiance, with themes of violence, romance and the politics of the everyday.
For those of you that missed out on tickets to The Falls Festivals in Lorne and Marion Bay, but simply MUST catch your favourite acts this summer, (or for those of you that need a double shot of Falls happiness) there are a bunch of sideshows happening so you can still get your fix!
Australia’s leading fire scientist has confirmed that “the environment around the Falls Festival site is highly unlikely to be dry enough by the time of this year’s event to enable a bushfire”.
The combination of strong international and national performers
This years Falls Festival Line-up has leaked and Oh My God does it look amazing.
