Falls Music and Arts Festival-Lineup Update

One of the most beloved festivals on our calender, the Falls Music and Arts festival, received its second lineup announcement this afternoon at 5pm.

The festival was already massive with big names like The Flaming Lips, The Vaccines and Best Coast amongst its headlining names and today the following were added:

Bombay Bicycle Club
First Aid Kit
Hilltop Hoods
Hot Chip
Maximo Park
Millions
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs

Bombay Bicycle Club were out here earlier this year, supporting Elbow on their national tour and playing their own spate of sideshows. First Aid Kit did a similar thing, a tour of Australia off the back of their new release. Hilltop Hoods are a festival staple here in Australia, and having wowed crowds at Groovin the Moo they’re sure to put on a killer show. Hot Chip’s fourth album came out this year and it was thought that they would play Big Day Out, looks like that’s out of the question as they bring their brand of dance to Falls. They’re out here for the first time ever along with alternative rock band Maximo Park. Millions are a new indie outfit along the same lines as Last Dinosaurs and are fronting the Brisbane indie movement. Finally, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs were meant to play last year, but cancelled at the last second. Hopefully we’ll catch them play some of that new album this year!

That makes the festival lineup currently look like this:

The Flaming Lips
The Vaccines
Best Coast
SBTRKT
Beach House
Boy and Bear
Coolio
Sampology
Bombay Bicycle Club
First Aid Kit
Hilltop Hoods
Hot Chip
Maximo Park
Millions
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs

There are still bands to be announced, with over 80 acts promised. Falls is running in both Lorne and Marion Bay this year, over New Years Eve and tickets will vary in price depending on the amount of days you choose to stay with four nights costing around $400. Tickets are done by ballot, so you’d better get your entries in!

I can’t speak highly enough of Falls, I had the best festival of my life last year and I will go again this year!
