Falls Festival organisers dropped the long-awaited lineup for the event’s 2014/2015 celebrations this morning, and did not disappoint. Topped by UK indie group Alt-J, fellow indie-rockers Glass Animals, Norwegian electronic duo Röyksopp & Robyn and American groups The Black Lips and Cold War Kids, Falls’ 2014/2015 lineup was something to behold. That said, it’s hardly full up.
After announcing their 2013/14 lineup in August last year — a bill that featured Vampire Weekend, The Roots, and MGMT — organisers followed-up by adding The War On Drugs, Johnny Marr, and more just a month later, before rounding out the lineup with more choice names in October.
Back in March, Falls got together with their friends in the Splendour In The Grass camp to put on a Secret Sounds-presented showcase at South By Southwest, which helped get the rumour mill for both festivals churning. Of that lineup, only Gossling and Skaters made their way over to SITG.
Meanwhile, fellow Falls & Splendour SXSW showcase alumni Wolf Alice were confirmed as part of the Falls 2014/2015 lineup earlier today. With plenty of other acts “due” for an Australian return, Music Feeds has compiled a list of potential acts for upcoming Falls lineup announcements.
