Prepare yourself because the Falls Festival timetable has just been released. 

Peking Duk will be bringing in the New Year on the main amphitheatre stage in Byron Bay.

New Years Eve is looking especially funky as attendees will be partying alongside the likes of John Farnham, Tash Sultana, Pnau and Parcels

Uncle Magpie Yerrubilgin will open the festival with a Welcome to Country at 1.10pm on the Forest Stage on December 31.

Some note-worthy clashes include: Vera Blue and Parcels, Holy Holy and Lewis Capaldi, and Thundamentals and Disclosure.

We recommend a comfortable pair of dancing shoes so that you can race between the different tents.

The official Falls Festival planner will allow you to customise your own timetable to avoid missing out over the course of the festival.

Tickets are still available for the festival.

  1. Water restrictions in place, while this event aproximately doubles the Shire population’s need for water, and not to mention its greenhouse gas’s from moving 25,000 people into and out of the Shire, or the environmental impact on wildlife on the sites facetiously “protected forest’ (protected from 24 hour lights and noise by a 2 metre hessian wall), or on the adjacent SEPP Wetlands and Nature Reserve, on land that is wildlife habitat that hasnt been burnt. Does the Corporate American majority owner Live Nation care if we become a Dead Nation if the money keeps rolling in?

  2. i object to money being spent on any arts or cultural phenomena that not only employs john farnham but does so without any indication ofof irony, sarcasm or whoopee cushion noises as, say Kenny Everett would have done
    And, Where are the deadly Indigenous artists?

  3. I think it is the year to say no. Who can contemplate the tragic potential of the combination of camping equipment, cigarette buts etc of 50,000 odd in one forested area, in unprecedented dryness and potentially catastrophic fire conditions. We are all advised to have a fire plan – what’s the fire plan for Falls including evacuation procedures? Sorry ScoMo if I’m being too insensitive!
