Falls Festival Byron Bay – Day 3
Searing heat and a dry dusty walk into the festival site felt like a pilgrimage to a holy land where hardship must first be endured to prepare the mind for revelation. Seeing people with various states of epic sunburn prepared me for what would be my skins fate at the end of this 3rd and final day of Falls festival.
Wet – the rising minimal-pop three-piece-band from Brooklyn – have just announced that in addition to supporting London Grammar, they will be making the journey across the globe to perform two intimate headline shows in both Sydney and Melbourne. Finally Australian audiences will be able to see what all the international buzz is about!
** TOUR UPDATED **
erth International Arts Festival are excited to announce London Grammar will be returning to Western Australia to play Redhill Auditorium on March 5 as part of the 2015 program. Returning to the West for the first time since their stunning performance at South Bound Festival, the announcement will be welcome news for WA fans.
Joining London Grammar for all shows will be New York minimal pop three piece Wet. The talk of SXSW this year, Wet, came to prominence late 2013 with breakthrough single ‘Dreams’ – a track readily added to full rotation on triple j and boasting in excess of 300,000 plays online. Their second single ‘You’re The Best’ proved a worthy successor; showcasing the indie pop smarts and minimalist R&B that saw the band publicly lauded by the likes of NME (“beguiling”), Billboard (“the toast of the tastemakers”) and BBC Radio 1 (“understated, considered and beautiful”).
Dustin Tebbutt will join London Grammar to open their SOLD OUT Splendour in the Grass sideshows next month. In a move that will delight fans who missed out first round, a very limited number of production holds have been released for both shows and will be available exclusively to Secret Sounds and Dew Process mail out subscribers 9am Friday July 4.
