A Byron record shop will be curating a dedicated stage for local acts at this year’s Falls Festival, to be held at North Parklands in Yelgun over New Year.

Howl & Moan owner Mario Fraietta says bands performing will vary from psychedelic rock and grunge to extreme metal, hardcore punk and experimental noise. The lineup includes Miniskirt, Stoker, Captain Squidlicker and Hobo Magic.

Fraietta says the Tuesday night ‘Wolf’s Den’ sessions at the store have become very popular in musical circles nationwide, with opportunities to perform in the store usually occurring on a three-month waiting list.

Falls Festival kicks off on Monday (December 31). Gates open for campers from Saturday (December 29).
