Falls Festival have made major changes to their locations in 2022/2023.
Falls Festival have just dropped some major news, with the iconic end of year festival revealing that when they return in the summer of '22/'23 the Victorian leg will be housed at a new location after 27 years staged in Lorne.
Pennyroyal Plains in Murroon (located in the Colac-Otway area) will now be the new home for the Victoria event (a 2-hour drive from Melbourne and 30 minutes from the Lorne site).
Meanwhile, the Tasmanian event will no longer continue after 17 years at Marion Bay. Both the Byron Bay and Fremantle events will continue.
"It has been a privilege to operate Falls Festival in such beautiful locations and we're so thankful to the Surf Coast Shire, Sorell Council and supporting stakeholders of Lorne and Marion Bay who have shown Falls Festival such incredible support over the years," festival promoters Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco says.
"We hope that our Lorne and Tassie Falls fam will join us at Pennyroyal Plains.
"Lorne is where Falls Festival started, so we want to give a particularly special shout out to the locals there. You have been instrumental in making the festival all that it is today, and we'll always be grateful to the community for their long-time support."
A never before used event location, Pennyroyal Plains offers the festival plenty of opportunities to evolve the festival. "The space is truly special," Jess and Paul says.
"We fell in love with its gentle topography and sweeping open spaces, which has created the opportunity for Falls to transform its new landscape into a deeper and more immersive festival experience."
