This fabulous festival will be on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th January 2019, however, you will need to book early to get your tickets. One state in Australia has already sold out more than 3 months ahead of the date, so book now. You can get your tickets at this link.



Falls Festival is an annual music and arts festival held in Fremantle each year. Falls Downtown 2019 will be taking over the Fremantle Oval Precinct and once again, will be including historic sites, streets, carparks and buildings to entertain participants!

At this festival you can get pass outs which will enable you to have access to all of Fremantle's many interesting places during this weekend. Places such as the Fremantle Markets, cafes, restaurants, shops, artisans, tourist sites, the port, Bathers Beach and more!

This will be WA's largest outdoor beer garden, where you will be able to see your favourite headliners in comfort and under the huge trees or heritage grandstand.



There will be heaps to do and after dark, you can escape into jail The Old Time Music Hall. This will be the old Fremantle Jail which will turn into a music and dance hall. Here you will be able to hear authentic blues, jazz, bluegrass, swing and more.

The Oddfellow basement venue will turn into the Downtown Comedy Club. This is one of Fremantle's oldest pubs and you can go into the basement where you will have a wonderful time full of laughs.

All the venues will be connected one way or another and the streets will be full of markets, food, entertainment, bars and more. This is going to be a weekend full of fun, laughter and adventure.

With 40 performers lined up so far to entertain you, here is a list of some of them:

BISHOP BRIGGS - was born in London but describes herself as a citizen of the world. Bishop plays soul, R&B, hip-hop and booming indie and does so with great style. She released her first album, Church of Scars this year.


TOUCH SENSITIVE - Sydney producer, Touch Sensitive is a "lord of choppy synths, strolling baselines and general good times". He is a former member of Van She and recently toured the US. He has also released his first album this year.

HILLTOP HOODS - are an Adelaide group who are extremely popular. They formed in 1993 and since then have established themselves as stars. They have even reached double platinum sales and have played with symphony orchestras.



KING GIZZARD AND THE LIZARD WIZARD - this group is back and have currently released five albums last year. Hailing from Melbourne, they have a significant international following.



HICKEY DAD - is the first band from Windang, Wollongong to get into the top 10 of the ARIA charts! They are the most played group on the Triple J's radio for 2018.



JACK RIVER - has released her debut album this year and has a rapidly rising fan base. She is from Sydney and sells out in all venues she plays at.
