Former MS MR front-woman and transformative pop genius LPX will also join the New Year celebration that is Falls Byron.

Meanwhile, The Falls Foster A Band competition has opened.

Aine Tyrrell, Banksia, Garage Sale, Gratis Minds and Nick Cunningham are all in the running. The act that gets the most votes will secure a paid slot on the official 2018/19 Byron line-up!
Voting is now open at https://fallsfestival.com/byron-bay/goings-on/foster-a-band/ and will close on Friday November 23.
