Falls Festival 2017: local Tassie acts to showcase at Marion Bay

The Falls Music and Arts Festival have once again teamed-up with Music Tasmania to showcase a bunch of local acts at this year’s Marion Bay festival.

This is the third year that Homebrewed has been a part of the festival and provided bands with an incredible opportunity to connect with over 16,000 music lovers during the New Year’s festivities.

This year, the Homebrewed line-up will take over the Field Stage on December 29, getting the party started with some Tassie favourites, including the sweet sounds of Kat Edwards, dark electro act Q.E., ocean pop darlings Heart Beach, Launceston punks The Sleepyheads, surf-rockers Chase CitySUNDAZE, and Younger Dryas, with masters of groove LAZER BABY and The Embers finishing up the night.

From December 30, the Homebrewed stage will focus on emerging talent with performances from up-and-coming acts such as Ani Lou, Isla KaRoboticusVerticoliThe StragglersSquid Fishing, and more.

Music Tasmania’s CEO Laura Harper said: “We’re really proud of the Homebrewed line-up this year. There are 25 acts programmed over three days and more than 50% are female-led.  Homebrewed has become the place to discover local talent at Falls Festival and we have a great mix of more established bands who have been kicking goals over the last year, along with some amazing emerging acts that you have to experience.” 

The Homebrewed stage will be running for the entire duration of the festival, giving music fans and festival goers the opportunity to support a slew of Tassie talent.
