The Falls Festival is one of the hottest New Year's Eve festivals going around in the southern states, and has just announced first handful of bands that will be on lineup in Lorne and Marion Bay at the end of this year (if we survive the impending apocalypse)!
The Flaming Lips are the biggest name on the first announcement, with Aussie act Boy & Bear another very popular choice.
They'll also be joined by Beach House, Best Coast and SBTRKT for what is no doubt going to be one hell of an extravaganza.
Perth will also be getting a piece of the action with all these bands heading over West for Southbound Festival.
This is Falls Festivals twenty-year anniversary in Lorne and tenth anniversary in Tasmania and will be releasing the 80 artist strong lineup over the next few months.
The promoters have also revealed that only a quarter of the full lineup have been secured so far, and they'll announce more names as they are locked down.
What do you think of this initial lineup?
