Halsey, Pnau, BANKS and more join Falls Festival 19/20 line-up

Falls Festival is ready to see in the new Twenties with a massive line-up of the best international and Aussie artists playing in Lorne, Marion Bay, Byron Bay and Fremantle.

Leading the charge in 2019/20 will be newly minted pop royalty and recent Rolling Stone cover megastar Halsey (for her only Australian shows), NYC’s hugely important hit making heroes hot off the back of new album Father Of The Bride Vampire Weekend, English house icons Disclosure with their massive hits Latch, Omen and latest banger Talk, plus super fun pop legends come stage slaying stars Peking Duk.

Add these huge names to a tectonic first announce which includes plenty more irresistible fruit, including those joyous Icelandic architects of anthem Of Monsters And Men, future hall of famers and festival masters Pnau with their slew of #1 dancefloor starters Chameleon, Go Bang and Changes, multi-platinum British lung buster / heartbreaker fresh from his famous Glastonbury set Lewis Capaldi, smooth German hook guru’s Milky Chance and downright dazzling LA alt-pop Queen BANKS.

There’ll even be a special appearance from Whispering Jack himself as the one and only John Farnham shows us all a thing or two in his first appearance on Falls’ hallowed stages. Look for his rendition of You’re The Voice to sit right next to Daryl Braithwaite’s 2017 performance of Horses in the pantheon of magical Falls moments.

Also dropping in for single shows are Falls’ signature guests! Tash Sultana (appearing as our special guest in Byron Bay) will be showcasing the multi instrumental talents that have made her an international star; What So Not taking his humungous live show to Lorne; Matt Corby arriving on-stage fresh from the release of last year’s breathtaking Rainbow Valley and appearing on the Fremantle leg; popping up in Marion Bay – the crater creating riffs of the untouchable Wolfmother.

After introducing a beefed-up arts program last year which included all manner of performances, activations, installations and curiosities strewn throughout the sites of each stop, Falls will again level up in 2019/20. This year, as every year, organisers promise to expand in scope and simultaneously narrow their focus to provide each punter with the best possible festival experience.

Falls Festival will be in Victoria, Tasmania and New South Wales from 28th Dec – 2nd Jan, wrapping in Fremantle on 4th & 5th January. For tickets and the full line-up, head to fallsfestival.com
