Millenials in raptures as Falls Festival line-up announced

The nation’s Millenials are bursting with excitement today after the Falls Festival announced a line-up packed with big names for its 2018/19 event.

American rapper Anderson Paak, Welsh indy band Catfish and the Bottlemen, and Scottish synth-poppers CHVRCHES are among the big overseas attractions as Falls flies into it’s 26th year.

They’ll be joined by some of the biggest names in Australian music including Vance Joy, the Hilltop Hoods and Ocean Alley.

In a statement crackling with excitement (and alliteration) the festival organisers said:

‘Warmer weather is just around the corner and with the return of the sun comes the arrival of renewed optimism and feverish expectations for 2019.’

‘Falls Festival aims to capture this reborn positivity and blast it skyward from stage to crowd, creating an unforgettable celebration of the very best music, arts and good times.’

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
