UPDATE: The full 2017/2018 Falls Festival lineup has now been announced.
ORIGINAL STORY: The 25th annual Falls Festival is only a few months away, so today organisers have revealed exactly when they’ll be dropping their much-hyped lineup for 2017/2018. Oh, and this year’s festival dates have been shared as well.
Falls has launched a lineup countdown clock on its official website, and it’s set to reach zero at 8am AEST next Tuesday, 22nd August — so mark it in your calendars (or just bookmark this page).
What’s more, according to dates discovered by Music Feeds within the code of the new Falls Festival website, the event will be held in Lorne (Victoria), Marion Bay (Tasmania), Byron Bay (New South Wales) and Fremantle (Western Australia) between December and January — view all the dates below.
Last year’s Falls Festival also took place in Lorne, Marion Bay, Byron Bay and Fremantle, and featured headliners like Childish Gambino, London Grammar, The Avalanches and Violent Soho.
The festival was also hit with a class action lawsuit after a horrific stampede incident led to dozens of people being injured in Lorne.
