Angus & Julia Stone

Australia’s favourite siblings are returning to Falls Festival for the first time in 7 years, to reaffirm their place as Australian folk royalty. Fresh off the release of their long awaited new album ‘Snow’, the Stones will be a breeze to the face for many hungover Falls punters. Boys be sure to dress like your favourite vegan/gluten free coffee barista from Brunswick, and girls don’t even attempt to dress like Julia; no one is cooler.

Fleet Foxes

Returning after a five year hiatus, Fleet Foxes have exploded back onto the global folk scene. With their haunting harmonies mixing beautifully amongst their celebrated twenty first century folk sound, Fleet Foxes have re-established themselves as Seattle’s best. Rummage through your parent’s closet to find their favourite vintage plaid shirt, poke some holes in your favourite jeans, and lads, grow your beard to fit in with the band.

Flume

Triple J’s favourite son has returned to Australia to pay homage to his roots after conquering the world, one festival at a time. After his universally acclaimed 2016 sophomore album ‘Skin’, Flume has established himself as the new benchmark of electronic music. Wear anything from H&M or Cotton On, and better save your money for a fashionable $500 haircut to blend in with the Flume crowd.

The Kooks

Regarded as one of Britain’s finest British Invasion revivalists, The Kooks re-emerge in Australia to be Falls Festival’s silent achievers. Alongside bands such as Arctic Monkeys, the View and Franz Ferdinand, The Kooks dominated worldwide charts in the noughties. The Kooks never fail to deliver a great performance. If you’re not heading to Falls, make sure to check out one of their side shows. Bring out your old dirty converse sneakers, a denim jacket, and crack open a bottle of cheap wine. Make sure not to comb your hair.

Liam Gallagher

Fresh off his very first solo album release ‘As You Were’, rock n roll’s greatest Mancunian and ex-lead singer of Oasis heads back to Australia for the first time in years to pump 90’s nostalgia back into our hearts. Be sure to wear your union jack t-shirt, your favourite leather jacket, and John Lennon spectacles. And whatever you do, don’t mention his brother Noel.

Run the Jewels

Still riding high off the success of their universally acclaimed third album ‘Run the Jewels 3’, Run the Jewels return to Australia to what is predicted to be the hip hop performance of the festival. If you want to be as cool as ‘El-P’ and ‘Killer Mike’, all you need is a black t-shirt, a New York Yankee’s Hat and a big gold chain necklace (if you can afford one).
