In an out-of-left-field revelation, Australian music legend John Farnham has been announced as part of the line-up for this year’s Falls Festival.

In a much-anticipated line-up announcement this morning, the festival also revealed that American singer-songwriter Halsey will be performing, alongside New York legends Vampire Weekend, fresh from the release of their album Father of the Bride.

They will be joined by English house outfit Disclosure and pop performers Peking Duck.

The announcement of Farnham follows in the same tradition as Daryl Braithwaite whose 2017 performance of ‘Horses’ will forever sit in the pantheon of magical Falls.

Byron Bay favourite Tash Sultana will also perform at the Byron event – the only one of the four Falls festivals at which she will be performing.

The full line-up, as announced this morning, is as follows:
