You may or may not remember that our first festival review of 2009 came from Everett True at Falls Festival down-under. Well the folks from that festival have announced another brilliant line-up to end/start the year.
The Falls Music & Arts Festival is a three day soirée from December 29, 2009 – 1 January 2010, which takes place in two gorgeous natural amphitheatres along the coastlines of Marion Bay, Tasmania and Lorne, Victoria; featuring around 60 performers, comedians, The Falls Arts Village, films, spectacular scenery and FREE CAMPING!
So not only do you get to spend a few days a lush climate, gazing at beautiful landscape whilst the rest of us nurse a bottle of cider and watch five minutes of fireworks in the drizzle, you also get to see this little lot which they've announced today...
