The next batch of acts for the Falls Festival 2012 lineup has been revealed, with another seven names joining the New Year’s Eve festivities.

The second announcement is led by Hilltop Hoods, who helped us celebrate the beginning of 2010 at Falls in Lorne. In the dance stakes, Hot Chip will be making the festival appearance they alluded to a while back, off the back of their latest killer LP In Our Heads. They’ll be joined by fellow Brit Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, who’s making up for last year’s last-minute tour cancellation and is coming with debut album Trouble in tow. Rounding out the reveal are indie kids Bombay Bicycle Club and First Aid Kid, as well as alt-rockers Maximo Park and Brisbane boys Millions.

Stay tuned for several more announcements as the final lineup for the festival, which is celebrating its twenty-year anniversary in Lorne and tenth anniversary in Tasmania, will feature 80 acts.
