Falls’ VIC event is set to relocate to Melbourne for the first time. Falls Downtown Melbourne will now take place at Sidney Myer Music Bowl and surrounds across the same dates 29, 30 and 31 December.
Colac Shire Otway Council approved the planning permit on 30 June for Falls VIC to be held at a new location at Birregurra, but while the planning permit was approved with council, along with support from the local MP and the broader community an application by a small group of locals was made to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) appealing this decision and a hearing date set for February/March 2023, after the event was meant to take place.
Falls Co-Producer Jessica Ducrou said: “Thanks so much for all the support from stakeholders, the venue, artists, all who contribute to Falls and especially our patrons. We’re thrilled that the show will go on at Sidney Myer Music Bowl, ringing in the new year in Downtown Melbourne!”
Falls Downtown Melbourne will feature the full line-up of acts already announced, across two stages in an inner city setting, with all the convenience that provides plus Club Falls, Rancho Relaxo, multiple bars and food trucks and much more! Bring in the 2023 New Year with your crew, as we rediscover the joy of celebrating this milestone together.
