Falls Festival 2011/2012 Line up

Written by Brayden Darke on June 29, 2011

The Falls Festival line up for 2011/2012 is starting to be revealed, and so far it looks pretty good. We’re also going to throw in a few rumours as well, but we expect the full line up to be revealed very soon.


Update: Falls Festival 2012/2013 line up is here!


So far 6 amazing acts that are guaranteed to light up the Falls stages this summer. Arctic Monkeys, Arj Barker, Easy Star All Stars performing Dub Side of the Moon in full, Fleet Foxes, The Jezabels and Tim Finn.

Robin Pecknold from Fleet Foxes told JJJ breakfast this morning that the group’s second visit to Australia was long overdue.

“By the time we’re over there we’ll probably have a couple of new songs (to play you) but it depends how long they let us play.”

Watch Arctic Monkeys – Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair
