Summer festivals are ramping up, New Year’s Eve planning is underway, and today Secret Sounds are excited to announce a string of Falls Festival Sideshows in Melbourne & Sydney to soothe your NYE hangover and ease you into 2018!
With the Lorne and Byron legs of the Falls Festival selling out in a record 30 mins, and Marion Bay and Fremantle rocketing home at unprecedented speeds, we are happy to give fans another chance to see their favourite artists this summer… presenting international Britpop icon and notoriously entertaining Liam Gallagher, LA’s dancefloor-filling indie rock trio Foster The People, and Queen B approved hip-hop artist DRAM.
Tickets for the sideshows are on sale now.
Presented by Secret Sounds
Making his debut solo appearance down-under with one of the most iconic voices in popular music history, Liam Gallagher has returned in true form with a slot at Glastonbury Festival, a sold-out underplay tour across the UK and Ireland, and an emotional performance at One Love Manchester. His forthcoming debut solo album As You Were confirms that he is as much of a legend now as he ever was, with lead single Wall of Glass already clocking up over 11 million streams on Spotify in just under two months.
Lending his voice to a myriad of sing-along tracks as front man of Oasis, including classics like Live Forever, Morning Glory, Wonderwall, and now with new solo material under his belt, get your vocal chords prepped and ready for a show you won’t want to miss!
Thu 04 Jan – Hordern Pavilion, Sydney
Fri 05 Jan – Festival Theatre, Melbourne
FOSTER THE PEOPLE
Presented by Secret Sounds and Handsome Tours
LA trio Foster The People burst on to the indie scene with their massively popular and infectiously catchy single Pumped Up Kicks, which led them to take home a Billboard Music Award for Top Rock Song as well as Grammy, BRIT, NME and Teen Choice Award nominations. Since then they have been filling dance-floors worldwide with headline tours and slots at some of the biggest international festivals including Lollapalooza, Glastonbury and Coachella. Now the sun-drenched Californian outfit return to Australia, this time bringing their third record Sacred Hearts Club along for the ride, featuring hit single Doing it for the Money.
Thu 4 Jan – Forum Theatre, Melbourne
Fri 5 Jan – Enmore Theatre, Sydney
Presented by Secret Sounds
With a name short for Does. Real. Ass. Music., 29-year old rapper, singer and producer DRAM will be making his Australian headline debut early next year. Coming in hot off the back of the release of his debut record Big Baby D.R.A.M. and his massive single Broccoli (featuring fellow buzz king Lil Yachty), which has amassed over a whopping 396 million streams on Spotify, the world initially took notice with his breakout hit Cha Cha, including Queen B herself. Lending his trappy-go-lucky vocals on collaborations with Chance the Rapper, Gorillaz and SZA, the US rapper will be hitting the stage after an extensive US headline tour as well as performances at SXSW, Coachella and Austin City Limits.
Fri 5 Jan – 170 Russell, Melbourne
