THE FALLS MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL are thrilled to announce two of music’s greatest dance-pop heavyweights, Australia’s own EMPIRE OF THE SUN and British ‘Bulletproof’ sensation LA ROUX will be stepping up to bring the fun after Royksopp and Robyn regrettably had to withdraw from their Australian tour due to personal family matters.

The Village at all Falls Festivals is co-ordinated by artistic director Ian Pidd. The Byron edition is curated by local artist and performer Valley Lipcer of Roundabout Theatre, drawing on a wealth of local talent that a uniquely north coast flavour to the creative oasis at the festival.
