Watch: Arctic Monkeys Belated Falls Festival Midnight Countdown

Written by John Ritchie on January 5, 2012

On Sunday we reported about The Midnight Countdown screw up at Falls Festival in Lorne on New Year’s Eve. Now footage has finally emerged online of the Arctic Monkeys belated countdown attempt after organisers forgot to tell them that they were supposed to run the countdown at midnight. The band left the stage at 11:58pm only to return a few minutes later saying:

Sorry, we thought someone else had organised a countdown; apparently not so, maybe we just fucken missed it. Shall we just do one anyway?

The crowd seemed to find some humour in the whole situation; watch below.
