Falls Festival sideshows announced

Johnny Marr, Solange, The Roots, London Grammar and James Vincent McMorrow have announced sideshows for the upcoming Falls Music & Arts Festival, held over New Year's in Lorne, Marion Bay and Byron Bay. The announcements are especially exciting to those who missed out on the now sold out festivals at Lorne Ampitheatre and North Byron Parklands.

Johnny Marr
Playing to Australian audiences for the first time as a solo act, Johnny Marr - one of the most celebrated guitarists in the history of contemporary music - will perform songs from his debut album The Messenger along with some Smiths classics.

The Messenger represents the first chance to capture Johnny Marr’s musical vision exactly as he envisioned, mixing elements of angular art-rock, indie and rock ‘n’ roll. And if the past tells us anything, it’s that Marr’s future projects are an on-going story worthy of the world’s attention and that these headline shows are not to be missed!

London Grammar
They captured hearts with the release of debut single ‘Hey Now’ and cast a soulful swoon over the masses with slow-burning follow ups ‘Wasting My Young Years’ and ‘Strong’. Bursting anticipation was eased with the release of the UK trio’s acclaimed debut album If You Wait and now, London Grammar answer the collective call of Aussie fans with the announcement of two very special shows in Melbourne and Sydney early January.

Upon release of their debut work If You Wait, London Grammar entered the ARIA charts at #2, and continued to hold Top 5 in the week to follow; proving one of Australia’s most loved breakout acts of the year. The rest of the world were to follow,  reaching #2 in their native UK and Scotland.

Now, the beloved Irish singer is set to send hearts a-flutter once again, with shows in Sydney and Melbourne this January.
