Joining the top-drawer 2014 line-up will be…

Since hitting Australian airwaves Ásgeir’s debut album In The Silence has scored triple j album of the week and the chilling single ‘King and Cross’ is set to be one of the big hits of 2014. In The Silence became Iceland’s fastest and biggest selling debut album ever by a home grown artist, outselling the debuts of superstars Bjork and Sigur Ros combined with a staggering one in ten Icelanders now owning a copy. Hailed ‘the next big thing’ this Icelandic artist is sure to stun audiences at Falls 2014!

Country soul, rock’n’roller Dan Sultan is always best experienced live. With a new album this year Blackbird receiving critical acclaim he’s a man in high demand. Recorded with Grammy Award-winning producer Jacquire King (Kings Of Leon, Tom Waits) in the legendary Blackbird Studio, which inspired the album title. He’s currently touring the country with his new material and is leaving audiences breathless.

Cloud Control, the four Blue Mountains musos intent on reviving the dulcet tones of vintage pop, best demonstrated with their 2013 hit release Dream Cave. A festival ready band, their entire performance always has a celebratory feel, especially when they belt out favourites like ‘There’s Nothing In The Water’, ‘Death Cloud’, Dojo Rising’ and ‘Promises’.

ART OF SLEEPING - IMG 1 NEW 1mb

Brisbane 5-piece The Art Of Sleeping are currently winning hearts and minds across the country with their indie/folk sound. Many flawless singles like ‘Colourblind’ and ‘Empty Hands’ and a small collective of EPs later, the quintet have just finished recording their latest, long-awaited offering, hopefully finished in time for you at Falls!

The beautiful and talented Megan Washington will let loose a jam-packed set with hits ‘How To Tame Lions’, ‘Rich Kids’ and ‘Clementine’ as well as tracks from her new album There There, due out this September. We can expect an emotional, uplifting and an all-round honest performance from the lady who wears her heart on her sleeve. An Aussie treasure.

Melbourne’s Kingswood are quickly gaining a reputation as one of Australia’s hottest homegrown acts. Since their formation a few years ago, the indie-rock four-piece have toured with heavyweights like Aerosmith and Grinspoon in addition to numerous festival appearances including Splendour In The Grass. With their debut album Microscopic Wars dropping this month, they’ll have a fresh batch of tunes ready for you at Falls.
