New Years Eve ‘Boogie Nights’ at Falls Music & Arts Festival Byron is a time to put on fancy dress and to be fancy-free (and locals sure know how to do that). Helping legendary hip hop queens SALT N PEPA push it into 2015 will be Melbourne synth-pop duo CLIENT LIAISON who are no strangers to mullets, shaded sunglasses and shoulder pads; Canadian trio BADBADNOTGOOD with their jazzy spin on the likes of Odd Future, Kanye West, MF Doom and Feist; four-piece psych-rock band from Brisbane MOSES GUNN COLLECTIVE mixing up psychedelic dream pop with soulful crooning and howling riffs while AIRLING will bring otherworldly vocals, lush electronics and dreamlike beats.
Add to that a line-up of DJs ready to scratch any New Year’s itch including Californian producer DJ FLETCH, Sydney DJ, producer and vocalist KLP, Triple J’s own queen of the morning airwaves ZAN ROWE as well as DJ KLEVAKUTZ , DJ JACK SHIT and PARKSIDE DJS. DJ WOODY will present his ‘Hip Hop is 40’ AV show celebrating all things hip-hop, starting with the original breaks and rap records through to the party rockers spanning the 80’s up until now (all with the visuals to match!).
And for those who always wanted to twerk but were too afraid to ask, Melbourne’s very own TWERKSHOP will be on hand to teach the masses this life-long skill in an hour of jammed packed fun. And that’s just on the main stage. One of the most popular spaces at last year’s festival, the artistic oasis called The Village, will be in full swing with workshops, comedy, burlesque and everything quirky, fun and colourful. There’ll also be a kaleidoscope of other acts and activities to discover throughout the festival grounds and a cornucopia of food and market stalls. The fancy dress theme for this year’s celebrations is yet to be announced but it’s sure to ignite the creative fires and have you hitting Spotlight and the op shops for those get-up gems.
