Falls Festival drop lineup with huge overseas acts including Arctic Monkeys and Lil Nas X

Falls Festival have announced that the Arctic Monkeys, Lil Nas X, and Chvrches will be headlining in 2022-23 with tonnes of top notch Aussie acts rounding out the lineup.

Back for the first time since 2019, Falls Festival has dropped its mammoth lineup for 2022-23, with some of the biggest names in alt-rock, hip hop, and dance.

The festival will kick off in Birregurra in Victoria, then Byron Bay, and Fremantle. Sadly, Falls won’t be returning to Marion Bay or Lorne after hosting the festival for 17, and 27 years respectively.

Among the local acts are DMA’S, Amyl and the Sniffers, Spacey Jane, Young Franco, and G Flip, with other overseas guests including Jamie xx, and Aminé.

But guess what. That’s not even the full list of artists. Falls Festival are somehow going to make this killer lineup even better before the event kicks off at the end of the year.

As usual, Falls Festival will also feature a range of markets, art, wellness stalls, delicious food for when you’re feeling a bit peckish, and off-stage performances (and no we don’t mean the guy that’s been buzzing since midday, cutting shapes at the back of the mosh).
