Falls Festival 2012 lineup: Third announcement

Image for Falls Festival 2012 lineup: Third announcement

Falls Festival has been announcing the 2012 lineup a handful of acts at a time this year, and a day out from ballot ticket sales kicking off we’ve been given the third batch of names to expect for the New Year. Leading the charge this time around is Irish group Two Door Cinema Club, who are backed up by veterans The Hives, Brits Django Django and a bunch more.

They’re joining previously announced names like SBTRKT, Hot Chip and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, whose own one-off Sydney club date sold out just minutes after going on sale this morning. But the line-up ain’t finished yet – Falls has explained that they’ll be announcing the bill as it’s booked and that as of the first announcement, only about a quarter of acts had been locked in. Promoters have promised an 80-strong assembly of names for 2012 and we’re currently just 27 in, so there should be plenty more to come.

Ballot tokens, for those who’ve already registered, will be emailed out tomorrow morning at 9am. Any remaining tickets will go up for sale on August 16.
