Moby heads up a string of New Years announcements

Image for Moby heads up a string of New Years announcements

Australian music fans were whipped into a frenzy over the past 24 hours with the lineup for the beloved Falls Festival events in Melbourne and Tasmania leaking onto the net, revealing dance music’s biggest little man Moby to be headlining the proceedings.

And then before we could even blink, the lineups for Sunset Sounds in Brisbane and Southbound in Busselton, WA were also unleashed to the ravenous public, with Moby also top-lining the proceedings alongside with Diplo and Switch project Major Lazer, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Midnight Juggernauts, Lyrics Born, DJ Yoda and many more.

It represents the biggest peek so far into what we’ll be getting down to to at our parties and festivals over the New Year period. Will Moby also be appearing at any of the other events around the country like Shore Thing or Field Day in Sydney, or Summadayze in Melbourne? We’ll have to wait in anticipation for the moment, but stay tuned to ITM for updates as they come to hand….
