Music and art lovers who can’t get to Falls Festival at North Byron Parklands for New Year’s Eve will be able to catch it live on ABC TV.

The national broadcaster will beam performances live from 11pm until midnight to hundreds of thousands of homes around the country.

The line-up for Falls this year is one of the most anticipated with international attractions such as Foals, Bloc Party and Birds of Tokyo, along with big Aussie acts Hilltop Hoods, The Wombats, Courtney Barnett and Paul Kelly.

Many of those acts will be broadcast live.

Festival organisers say ‘it’s guaranteed to provide the best soundtrack to your 2016 countdown’.

Paul Kelly and his Merry Soul Sessions are set to be a big draw at this year's Falls fest.

Extras for this year’s festival includes free camping, a custom built water park with a 20-metre long inflatable water slide, an air-conditioned cinema space and a festival parade.

Patrons can camp next to their cars this year with regular shuttle buses to and from the festival site to many locations up and down the coast and surrounding areas.
