Yes folks, the countdown has once again begun to the only festival big enough and bold enough to bring in the new year. That's right, the Falls Festival line-up has been announced, and as you'd expect, it's another doozy.
First off, it's an international smorgasbord. With the new album 'What Went Down' on the way, Foals will be bringing all their new hits to Falls. And you can't have a party without Bloc Party; the guys are heading down under from the UK to join the celebrations. Joining them will be Disclosure, bringing their brand of electronica to fans at Falls. Django Django will also be bringing their dance moves, as will Kurt Vile & The Violators. For a touch of indie rock, The Maccabees will be joining the line-up.
There's plenty of overseas up-and-comers headed our way too... BØRNS will blow your socks off with his vibrant tunes, while Gary Clark Jr will be bringing his brand of the blues to Falls. The aurally unpinnable Young Fathers will be heading here from Scotland, and Oh Wonder will put their elegant music on display for us. And believe it or not, but Weird Al Yankovic himself will be making us smile with his catchy parodies for Boogie Nights.
There's plenty of Aussie acts to make you drool too. The legendary Paul Kelly will be making an appearance, performing his endless string of hits with friends Dan Sultan, Clairy Browne, Kira Puru and Vika & Linda Bull. The Hilltop Hoods will have the crowd jumping, and Courtney Barnett will have them crooning along. Let's not forget Alpine, Art vs. Science, Birds of Tokyo, Gang Of Youths, Hiatus Kaiyote, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Little May, Meg Mac, RÜFÜS and Seth Sentry.
