Falls & Southbound Festivals announce lineups

August 13, 2008



I have never been to Falls Festival or Southbound before, and I really don’t think I intend to go this year as well. Living in another state that these festivals are in are a deterrent and I’m planning on a holiday in late January instead anyway. But as always around this time, we get excited about the plague that is the festival announcement. We have got into the swing of things with Homebake already announcing their line up earlier this month and Falls and Southbound festivals just announcing their nearly identical line ups today. As per below:

Southbound Festival 09 (January 2 & 3 2009, Sir Stewart Bovell Park, Busselton WA):

    Yeha I have to agree – MMF will be the bomb. Although the above two line ups are tempting!
