Byron Bay’s Falls Festival Drops An Additional 2500 Tickets, More Acts To The Lineup

The Byron Bay leg of Falls Festival may have sold out in record time thanks to its bumper lineup for the 2017/18 edition but the good news has rolled in as the site has been approved for an extra 2500 capacity along with six more names added to the bill.

For those who missed out on the quick run of tickets earlier this year, the extra 2500 will be hitting digital stores 9am AEDT Thursday 2 November—that’s this week so set those iCals! The Byron Bay leg of the annual, touring Falls Festival has been in hot contention as the most popular leg rivalling Marion Bay and Lorne.

To celebrate the new abundance of punters to enter to festival grounds over the new years period, organisers have also dropped an extra six names to the already mammoth bill. Wafia will lead the pack along with Brisbane’s Waax, newly rebranded West Thebarton, Manu Crook$, Australia’s favourite beatmaker Alice Ivy and our number one pick from BIGSOUND, Party Dozen.

Go HERE for the newly added tickets this Thursday. Car passes for Lorne and Byron Bay will go on sale the following day at 9am AEDT Friday 3 November. Scope the full Falls Festival Byron Bay lineup below.
