As hotter weather approaches and the Eastern States of Australia slowly begin to pack away their duffle coats, the team behind Falls Festival have decided to bring you a bit of good news with a smorgasbord of international musical delights as they present a scorching range of summer sideshows.
Showcasing a potent mix of global stars and fast rising up-and-comers, this anticipated range of shows will spread its tentacles throughout Sydney and Melbourne in January 2019.
Californian kings TOTO will whip up extreme levels of nostalgic buzz when they land at Melbourne’s Festival Hall (Jan 4); New Yorkers INTERPOL will be showing off their excellent new album Marauder at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre on Jan 4; English rockers THE VACCINES will be hitting up the Croxton Bandroom on Jan 3 with their latest cut Combat Sports; BISHOP BRIGGS will perform an exclusive East Coast show at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne on Jan 8; Irishman DERMOT KENNEDY will hit up the Croxton Bandroom on Jan 9; Nashville’s SOCCER MOMMY will be at Howler on Jan 7 and rounding it all out is the eclectic HOBO JOHNSON & THE LOVEMAKERS, who will be making their first trip Down Under and performing at Corner Hotel on Jan 5.
From legendary 80’s outfits to New York post-punk icons to Nashville born stars of the future, there’s something for everyone on offer as the summer calendar domination begins in earnest.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 9am via Secret Sounds.
