Festival Description

The Falls Festival features 50 performers and comedians, with an arts village, and films set on beautiful beachs in two locations. Festival-goers are treated to two nights of free camping. The Festival began in 1993 with the simple idea of transforming a New Years celebration among friends into an event that extended its invitation to a broader audience. The Falls Festival was born and was entitled “Rock Above the Falls”. The holiday event has since turned into an annual celebration of music and revelry with top international acts.

The Falls Festival is held on a truly beautiful farm. The backdrop to the stage is the ocean that overlooks the stunning Marion Bay and out over Maria Island. And the main arena is blessed with a natural gradient that provides the perfect viewing platform for the main stage. From DJs to Punk to Blues, Folk and Rock, and Comedy—the diverse line-up offers something for everyone.

The Festival—with the local community and the world-at-large in mind takes great strides in making the festival a green event by signing on with partners in the field of enviromentally-minded practices. The organizers reach out to involve themselves in the local community through charitable donations and fundraisers for a variety of causes.

The Falls Music and Arts Festival also takes place in Lorne, Victoria. For more information visit
