The Falls Festival Frenzy Part 2
Tickets on sale now but selling fast!!

As a Falls Festival subscriber we figured you are the most dedicated of Falls Festival fans and so you've probably already bought your ticket... BUT, on the off chance that you've been busy today or just plain forgot, we wanted to send you the heads up - get off your but and get onto it right now!! Falls tickets are selling so fast and judging by today, we suggest you get one by tomorrow to be sure. That's no marketing spin either; we just want to make sure that our most loyal music lovers aren't the ones that miss out.

You've got a few options; you can buy from www.fallsfestival.com, Ticketek or a bunch of independent stores. More details are available on the website. Each sales channel has a set allocation, and will sell out at slightly different times. We will be updating the website as promptly as possible when the options start to run out so you can check there rather than calling around. Those coming to Tassie from interstate will really need to get onto it as the vast majority of tickets were allocated to independent stores in Tassie - so you've only got what is available via Ticketek and www.fallsfestival.com.

Oh, and a final word, we work our butts off to deliver the most accessible and best value festival in the country so we don't want to see anyone paying too much for a ticket. We all hate scalping so there are a few things we are doing to try to help you. For a start, we've limited sales to 5 per person. We'll also be monitoring advertisements for The Falls Festival tickets and will be canceling on-sold tickets. Don't waste money on paying for a ticket that isn't worth a cent.

So there you have it, don't say we didn't warn you, grab a ticket now!!


Well I know I've got my ticket - so if you're planning on going, YOU'D BETTER BE FUCKEN QUICK!!! - Cross Posted

Hey All...

Recently joined the community... Anyways, getting super keen for the falls. Ended up missing out on tickets but bought some on ebay (at ridiculous prices but I guess that's what you get for not being organised). Probably shows how much I really want to go this year though. Last year was awesome. Hope the time can be repeated. Preying for good weather.

Trying to build a list of essentials to take... let me know what you think?!

* Tent
* Water
* Food
* Protection (and lots of it!!)
* Cash
* Music
* Sunscreen
* Hat
* Waterproof Coat
* Warm Clothing
* a frisbee, cricket set, footy, games and stuff???
* Walkie Talkies as mobile reception is basically zippo
* Tarpaulin
* Picnic Rug
* Camp Chairs and Table
* Cuttlery and bowls, plates etc
* Ear Plugs (for sleepin?)
* Air Mattress
* Sleeping stuff
* Sunnies
* smuggled achohol (the thing is how do we smuggle it in??? and ideas?)
* Torch
* 12 Volt Air compressor to blow up air mattress cuz blowing it up manually sucks ass
* Esky(s) full of ice
* A camera, definately don't forget to take that
* Panadol or Nurofen (just in case)
* Some bandaids
* Aeroguard or equivalent mozzie repelant
* A big smile! haha ok... running low on ideas... check over the list and let me know if I should add anything?!
(Stuff added: Edit 1 Thanks to evildoive!!
* Up & Go. Best ever for Falls breakfasts.
* Fruit
* Stuff to make sandwiches from.
* Giant bottle of water. Like, 20L or so. It's good if you want to skip the massive line for the
showers, you can just pour it on yourself and have a quick wash.
* Deoderant. Obvious.
(Stuff added: Edit 2)
* Extra tent pegs
* A Mallet to hammer in said tent pegs
* Wet Wipes (they were really handy last year as I recall... refreshing and easy to remove dust from
your hands and face)

Hey fellow fallzians. I've heard an interesting rumour.......

That Ben Harper is going to play as a New Years Surprise guest....

Have any of you heard that? - And I am definately going now, some of my mates have miraculously lined up themselves tickets so I'll definately be making an appearance!

More importantly I'm interested in finding out whether this Ben Harper Rumour is true or not?

The Falls Festival at Lorne has now completely sold out!

There are NO tickets available in any of the stores so please don't call them anymore!!

You don't have to miss out on your Falls Festival experience just yet - tickets are still available for The Falls Festival in the stunning Marion Bay, near Hobart in Tasmania. Check out the transport options in the "getting there" section of this website. Tickets are selling super fast to this festival too, so we recommend that you grab one now.

Just as a side note:-

You know what sucks more than not having a ticket? Being the ONLY person out of your mates who bothered to get a ticket, so when all the tickets sell out - you're the only one standing there going 'what's wrong with you people!'.

Anyway I hope all you guys enjoy falls, because if my mates don't get their act together - I won't be going !@

Lineup got updated again! And if you're on this community I'm assuming you're on the mailing list too, so this announcement is kind of redundant.
