The 2015 #fallsfestival line-up is here to sweep you off your feet with all the best frequencies and your favourite summer love songs, and we’ve got our family members Oh Wonder and Little May to help!
Tried, tested and perfected over the past two dozen years, Falls proudly delivers all your number ones: rolling green amphitheatres, multiple stages, stunning locations, bountiful nature, free camping, sustainable and environmental processes, curated foodies, interactive arts and all the best sounds with even better memories.
Many have tried and many have failed to achieve what London-based duo OH WONDER have managed. Release one song a month, every month for a year on SoundCloud. See what happens. A brave move and a folly in the hands of less talented artists. The thing about Oh Wonder though is; it worked. The public started listening and play counts began rising, rising and rising up into the millions. Anticipation for the next tune would hit fever pitch every month and pretty soon Anthony and Josephine’s brand of gorgeous, soft vocals and heartbreaking emotive qualities were hitting critical mass in the UK. Once they were done releasing, they began playing live. Simples! We’re lucky enough to have them for their Falls appearances, as well as this being their first Australian shows!
LITTLE MAY are a big deal. Our Sydney folk-pop trio have, in the space of a couple of years grown into one of Australia’s most talked about new acts. Establishing themselves with a string of gorgeous singles (you will have heard ‘Boardwalks’ and ‘Hide’ on triple j) Annie, Liz and Hannah have gone on to sell out shows in Australia and London and grace the stages of Bonnarroo, Reading and Leeds. They’ve also supported the likes of Alabama Shakes, The Flaming Lips and Mumford & Sons – quite the CV! Having just finished recording their debut album in New York with The National’s Aaron Dessner, they’re set to head back to Australia and amaze us all over again.
