Can’t get that time off work over New Years? The crew’s already made other plans?
No stress, the first announcement of sideshows from this year’s delicious Falls Festival lineup are here to make all your troubles disappear.
Branching out from the stacked bill of international acts will be German folksters Milky Chance, crooning R&B star Pink Sweat$ and the UK’s genre-bending rocker Yungblud.
Appearing at Melbourne’s Festival Hall and Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion for some very special all ages dates, eager fans will be among the first in the world to experience Milky Chance’s brand-new album Mind The Moon live on stage. With a reputation as one of the hardest touring acts around, their breezy harmonic tones illustrated on tracks like ‘Cocoon’ and the mega-hit ‘Stolen Dance’ will steal the night away.
Tuesday January 7 — Festival Hall, Melbourne.
A man apart from a world of processed beats and trap-hats, Pink Sweat$ will demonstrate his addictive harmonies and sublime vocal abilities on stages at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory and Melbourne’s Corner Hotel. Having picked up millions of streams for his two EP’s Volume 1 and Volume 2, this Philly native is an expansive talent painting with a stunning minimalist brush.
Wednesday January 8 — Corner Hotel, Melbourne.
Leaping off the Falls stage and landing like a cat in the lap of audiences for all ages shows at Melbourne’s Forum and Sydney’s Enmore Theatre, UK troublemaker YUNGBLUD will be delighted to show off tracks from his upcoming the underrated youth EP. Released in mid-October, this new set of songs (including brand new single ‘hope for the underrated youth’) are as powerful and arresting as anything yet put forth by this super talented Englishman.
Thursday January 2 — Forum Theatre, Melbourne.
Pre-sale for all shows commence Thursday October 3 and general sale kicks off Friday October 4 via Secret Sounds.
