The 2017 Falls Festival
Happy Birthday to us! We're getting set to celebrate our brightest ever summer silver jubilee, across the 100% all-natural amphitheaters and center stages of our spiritual homes in Lorne, Marion Bay, Byron Bay and Fremantle! Our quarter-century line-up has landed amongst the party palms, port cities and champagne shores of Australia's heartland, as we release another collection of almighty salutations across the New Year period and first week of January.
Beneath the Falls silver-sunset you'll find: world class music · creative installations · visual arts performances · pop-up bars and beer gardens · thoughtful camping facilities · comedy clubs · daily beach access · glorious gourmet fare · makers' markets · local traders · beauty parlours · holistic yoga and well-being, plus loads more to be announced!
Some changes on the horizon: Our bars will now be cash and pay-wave enabled, leaving drink tokens behind. Cheers!

Falls Downtown 2018 will be taking over the Fremantle Oval Precinct along Parry Street and will once again will be incorporating and reimagining historic sites, streets, carparks and buildings to delight, entertain and inspire our audiences and artists. Our unique passouts policy will also continue to retain free flowing access to all of Fremantle's many delights during the weekend – Fremantle Markets, cafes, restaurants, retailers, artisans, tourist sites, the port, Bathers Beach and more.
As ¼ of our venues transform, ¾ of our venues welcome us home; all remaining 100% awesome! Lorne will rev up our beloved flagship farm in the lush green Otways. Marion Bay will sip up space along the crystal coastlines of Southern Tasmania and Byron Bay will nestle into the tropical wonderland of North Byron Parklands. Ushering us into 2018 and setting the soundtrack against our beautiful backdrops will be…
