The Falls Festival Sideshows are Here

As hotter weather approaches and the Eastern States of Australia it's time for Falls Sideshows and The Falls Festival Celebrations.

As hotter weather approaches and the Eastern States of Australia slowly begin to pack away their duffle coats, the team behind Falls Festival are delighted to offer a smorgasbord of international musical delights as they present a scorching range of summer sideshows.

Showcasing a potent mix of global stars and fast rising up-and-comers, this anticipated range of shows will spread its tentacles throughout Sydney and Melbourne in January 2019. From legendary 80’s outfits to New York post-punk icons to Nashville born stars of the future (plus plenty more), there’s something for everyone on offer as the summer calendar domination begins in earnest.

Toto

First cabs off the rank are Californian kings TOTO, who will whip up extreme levels of nostalgic buzz when they land at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion and Melbourne’s Festival Hall for two huge shows. Riding high on a renewed public obsession with classic tunes ‘Africa’, ‘Rosanna’ and ‘Hold the Line’, these pioneers of prog never seem to go out of style.

Another gigantic voice capable of transfixing audiences at festivals and venues alike belongs to Irishman DERMOT KENNEDY.

She’ll be hitting cosy venues in Sydney and Melbourne for two not-to-be-missed shows.
