Other esteemed international acts on Falls’ first lineup announcement include Halsey, Django Django, Kurt Vile And The Violators, Mac DeMarco, Young Fathers

Organisers have also announced the lineup for the festival’s opening party, Boogie Nights, which this year will be led by singer, songwriter, parodist, record producer, satirist, and all round legend ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic.

He’ll be joined by Sydney trio Art Vs Science, DJ collective and London “re-edit project”, Fleetmac Wood and the man known as the “Mexican Elvis” El Vez.

The annual New Year’s Eve event is returning to its longtime homes Marion Bay, Lorne as well as Byron Bay in late December and early January.

The festival’s ticket ballot is now open and registrations close on Friday August 14. There will be general sale for those who miss out in the ticket ballot, starting at 9am AEST on Wednesday August 26th.
