Falls Festival Adds Even More Acts To 2017/2018 Lineup

Falls Festival has added even more acts to its ever-growing 2017/2018 lineup by way of triple j Unearthed winners.

Each of the four stops will receive a different Unearthed winner to play at the festival and it’s a pretty fresh crop.

Playing in Lorne will be 18 year-old Samsaruh who only released her debut single ‘Golden To Thrive’ in June but has already collabed on stage with giants like Peking Duk and Slumberjack.

In Marion Bay, the lineup will be boosted by Tasmania locals A. Swayze & The Ghosts who will give the festival a healthy injection of garage punk. Their raucous vibes have seen them play alongside fellow Aussie rock acts like The Living End.

Much further north in Byron Bay, a trio of guys who go by the name of Bugs will play. They call their sound Noise/Pop and are sure to bring good vibes to the festival.

The final addition is Elli Schoen who joins the Fremantle bill. Schoen has one of the most stirring fresh voices in the country and will likely haunt the WA audience.

These new additions come in the same week that the Byron Bay leg of the festival received a new injection of talent including Wafia and Alice Ivy.

All these newbies join a main lineup that includes Flume, Liam Gallagher and Daryl Braithwaite. You can check out the full lineup and more details below.
