The Falls Music & Arts Festival (commonly known as Falls) is a music festival held annually in Lorne, Victoria, Marion Bay, Tasmania, and Yelgun (30 km from Byron Bay), New South Wales, Australia, on New Year’s Eve. While the festival is best known for contemporary music performances, dance, comedy, theatre, circus, cabaret, as well as other art forms, are also featured at the event.
Due to the length of the event, people bring a tent and camp out at the event; the Victorian and Tasmanian locations have nearby beaches, the New South Wales location – Yelgun is approx 7 km from South Golden Beach, which is 28 km from Byron Bay Main Beach. Many artists playing at the Falls Festival are traditionally of the blues & roots genre, however it is not exclusively of this style, with rock, hip hop and electronic style acts also playing.
