Falls Music and Arts Festival - 2018

2018

It's a jam-packed Falls Festival lineup for 2018 and here at Unearthed, we're looking to add a few more names to the bill!

For your chance to join the party with acts like Flume, Angus and Julia Stone, Jungle, DRAM, The Smith Street Band, Alex Lahey, The Kooks and more in your home state, here's what you gotta do:

STEP ONE: Make sure your best tunes are uploaded to triplejunearthed.com by the competition's closing date, October 22.

STEP TWO: That's pretty much it. Note that if your tunes are "pending" on the website when the competition closes, it's chill. We listen to everything that gets uploaded before we make a decision. 

STEP THREE: Good luck!

Falls Music and Arts Festival - 2016

2016

This year's Falls Music and Arts Festival is shaping up to be one of the biggest yet! Not only do we get to catch Childish Gambino, London Grammar, The Avalanches, Violent Soho, Matt Corby, Alison Wonderland and heaps more over New Year's, but for the first time, Falls is making four stops around the country.
 
We're looking for four acts to open each leg, in Lorne, Marion Bay, Byron Bay and Fremantle. So, if you're from WA, VIC, TAS, NSW, SE QLD, or the ACT, you could be in the running to play the Falls Fest closest to you, alongside all those amazing artists. Kinda the best NYE ever, right?
 
To enter, just upload your best tracks to triplejunearthed.com by November 6th. Make sure you've entered your postcode so we know you're in an eligible state. It's as easy as that!
 
Don't stress if your songs are still pending when the comp closes - we listen to everything that gets uploaded before we make a decision. Good luck!
