Can't wait.

The summer festival announcements are beginning to roll in, with the hallowed Falls Festival announcing the first taste of their 2016 lineup along with dates and venues. 

Bringing music, art and light to the rolling amphitheaters, streets and shores of Australia, Falls 2016 will go down in Lorne (Wednesday December 28 - Saturday December 31), Marion Bay (Thursday December 29 - Saturday December 31), Byron Bay (Saturday December 31 - Monday Janurary 2) and Fremantle (Saturday Janurary 7 - Sunday January 8) for some New Year's antics. 

Topping the bill so far comes acclaimed rapper Childish Gambino. He'll be heading over armed with PHAROS, his new record due out later this year.
