The Falls Music & Art Festival

Falls Music and Arts Festival

Would you rather be moping around some anonymous club on New Year’s, or laughing on the beach with friends while listening to great live music?
There’s no contest. Head to The Falls Music & Art Festival. What started as an idea hatched sitting around a campfire has become one of the world’s great festivals.
This year dream-pop band Beach House headline, along with psychedelic alt rockers The Flaming Lips. Don’t miss the UK’s Maximo Park, or Mexico’s guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela. Try something new at The Village for morning yoga, samba classes and circus workshops.
Now, your goal for 2013? Travel to all the world’s festivals that combine music and art.
Happy New Year!!!
