Falls’ El Capitan Stage, showcasing global headline artists across hip hop, indie, rock and pop, is where this Summer’s major music moments are set to play out! Sugarloaf Resort, with high end production and custom structures, is Australia’s new home for the very best in global electronic artists. And the Futures Stage is where you’ll find cutting edge acts, showcasing the future of music.
Arctic Monkeys 2006 album Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not became the fastest selling debut in UK history. They are the only band to have won both Best British Group and British Album of The Year at The Brits three times. They’ve won 7 Brit awards in total alongside an Ivor Novello award, a Mercury Music Prize, 20 NME awards, 5 Q awards and 3 Grammy nominations. With over 30 million followers, the band’s music has been streamed more than 9 billion times to date. They’ll headline Reading & Leeds and festivals across Europe before heading to Falls!
Lil Nas X released the culture-shifting 4x Platinum hit MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name) in March 2021, the queer anthem debuting at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The single features on his GRAMMY-nominated, certified Platinum debut album Montero which was released last September and landed spots on “Best Of 2021” lists across the globe. The album also boasts back-to-back Top 40 #1s with Industry Baby featuring Jack Harlow and That’s What I Want. The 23-year-old rapper, singer and songwriter rose to fame with his 2019 mega hit Old Town Road, which simultaneously upended the music industry and shattered genre norms. The 16 x Platinum remix with Billy Ray Cyrus became the longest running #1 single in Billboard Hot 100 history, earning Lil Nas X 2 Grammys. Multiplatinum hits Panini, Rodeo and HOLIDAY followed. Don’t miss the incredible Lil Nas X’s first live shows in Australia at Falls!
Forward-thinking beatmaker and producer, Jamie xx helped shape the sound of the late 2000s and beyond with his Mercury Music Prize-winning group the xx and solo work. He released debut single Far Nearer/Beat For in 2011. Further singles Girl/Sleep Sound, All Under One Roof Raving, Loud Places, and Gosh followed, the latter two appearing on his debut album as a solo artist, 2015’s In Colour, which received nominations for a Best Dance/Electronic Album Grammy, the Mercury Prize and Album of the Year at the Brit Awards. Jamie released Idontknow in 2020, boasting a faster-pace and more aggressive sound than his In Colour era. He returned in April this year with the festival ready anthem, LET’S DO IT AGAIN, released alongside his massive set at Coachella. Get ready to move when Jamie xx plays Falls 2022/2023!
Few artists have made an impact like South Korean born DJ and producer Peggy Gou. Inspired by the glory years of London club Plastic People, her natural feel for house and techno’s legacy led to a run of international hits; Gou Talk, It Makes You Forget (Itgehane), Starry Night and Jigoo. These iconic tracks with their playful, unmistakable MPC rhythms and irresistible melodies have seen her tour the world’s leading clubs and festivals, from Glastonbury to Dekmantel, De School to Printworks and now Peggy Gou will be the very first artist to headline Falls’ new Sugarloaf Resort.
