Falls Downtown will be making her maiden voyage to WA this summer! An exciting event packed with maximum good times will be staged over the weekend of January 07 and January 08 2017, including the very best local, national and international artists; performance installations; creative food and boutique drinks; décor; makers markets and artisans; community involvement and so much more.
Breaking the traditional Falls Festival format, Falls Downtown will flood the streets and forgotten buildings of Fremantle, awakening spaces which have been lost in time – creating a completely new festival experience over two days in January.
To add to the already awesome line-up, more names have just been announced to play the festival and its many unique and creative spaces!

The Danceteria at Falls Downtown is hidden away deep in the dark basement gallery of the MANY makers’ markets in the old Myer building. It’s where the festival literally goes underground and plays host to the absolute cream of WA’s underground electronic music crews, co-ops and collectives.These motivated communities of artists, producers, organisers, movers-and-shakers are at the core of what keeps WA supplied with interesting parties, events, releases and happenings all year-round. It’s therefore our pleasure to hand over the keys to the Danceteria to each of these communities so they can show the Falls Downtown audience exactly what they do. Expect nothing but audio and visual goodness from: PILERATS · THE COMMUNITY · FUNGLE CLUB · BOOGIE NIGHTMEDIA · POLYRHYTHMIC · CAMP DOOGS and a special live performance by KARI FAUX.
OLD TIME MUSIC HALL

CHURCH OF HEAVENLY DELIGHTS
St John’s Anglican Church let’s laughter in to our hearts at Falls Downtown as some or our best national and local comedy artists preach their own hilarious sermons throughout the day in search of mass laughter and/or redemption in this lovely 1843 church building. So take a pew and have a laugh or two at the Church of Heavenly Delights with acts such as JOEL CREASEY, MC ANDY SAUNDERS, THE STEVENSON EXPERIENCE, AUNTY DONNA, MC IVAN ARISTIGUIETA,WA’s legendary improv riot THE BIG HOO-HAA, BULLSH*!# TRIVIA, THE TOR-NIGHT SHOWand a cast of WA’s finest stand-ups strutting their stuff at the golden lectern in LOCAL LAUGHS.
