The 2017/2018 Falls Festival lineup just got even bigger in Marion Bay, with 25 local Tasmanian artists joining the lineup.

25 local Tasmanian artists have just been added to the bill on their own stage. The ‘Homebrewed’ lineup has been a part of the festival for three years now, and gives locals bands an incredible opportunity to connect with all the punters of the New Years festival.

Taking over the Field Stage this year will be the likes of dark electro act Q.E., indie pop darlings Heart Beach, Launceston punks The Sleepyheads, surf-rockers Chase City.

Music Tasmania’s CEO Laura Harper said in a statement: “We’re really proud of the Homebrewed line-up this year. There are 25 acts programmed over three days and more than 50% are female-led.

Homebrewed has become the place to discover local talent at Falls Festival and we have a great mix of more established bands who have been kicking goals over the last year, along with some amazing emerging acts that you have to experience.”

The Homebrewed stage will be running for the entire duration of the festival, giving festival goers the chance to brush on their knowledge of great Tassie talent.
