The Falls Festival crew are coming off a stellar performance after last year’s effort, and are going all out to back it up with another top tier lineup to close 2016 announced on Tuesday afternoon. There’s a strong showing from some of Australia’s finest and proven festival performers mixed in with plenty of internationals. This time the Falls Music & Arts Festival will not only head to the traditional festival digs of Byron Bay, Lorne and Marion Bay, but also for the first time to Fremantle.

As for securing your spot for an unforgettable NYE celebration, things are a little different this year with the ticket ballot making way for the standard 9am dash. General sales will commence at 9am local time Tuesday 30th August via the festival website.

See the full line up below. Or if you really wanna get psyched up view it in video form, ’tis a good idea to have a bib on hand. And remember, this is only the first announcement. We simply cannot wait for the end of year
