Despite the chilly weather, it looks like festival season is well and truly upon us: after yesterday's Beyond The Valley bombshell, Falls Festival has gone ahead and dropped a whopper of a lineup to welcome in the new decade.
Leading the announcement is US pop sensation Halsey, as well as live favourites Vampire Weekend, Disclosure and Peking Duk. There's also more than a few seasoned veterans, with the likes of John Farnham (not too sure about this one...) and PNAU sitting pretty up on headline slots, as well as appearances from Banks, G Flip, Yungblud, Crooked Colours, Milky Chance, Lewis Capaldi, The Japanese House, Parcels, Amyl & The Sniffers and more.
This year also sees the inclusion of an array of 'special guest' acts at each festival site. Byron Bay gets loop maestro Tash Sultana and Lorne gets doof lord What So Not, while Marion Bay cops Wolfmother and Fremantle gets treated to Matt Corby. There's set to be a whole heap more artists announced over the next few months, so be sure to stay tuned.
In the meantime, check out the first lineup announcement below - tickets go on sale on Wednesday August 14.
