Falls Festival 2012 Lorne Sells Out, Marion Bay Selling Fast
Despite earlier meltdowns for the presale and ticket ballot, Falls Music & Arts Festival in Lorne has sold out in under 50 minutes this morning after tickets went on general sale. Marion Bay is currently still on sale, but you better be quick as tickets are being snapped up at a swift pace.
So if you want to enjoy the sweet sounds of Hot Chip, The Flaming Lips, The Hives, Matt Corby, and more you better be quick and make plans to spend the new year in Tasmania.
Still need some convincing? Well, for one it’s cheap with ticket prices being heavily subsidised, and the festival site is amazingly beautiful. Marion Bay truly is the most beautiful festival location. White sands, ocean breezes, balmy days, warm starry nights – you get it. No wonder so many people travel from all over Australia each year to visit her.
Loads more flights across the Bass Strait this year over the festival period have also been added, or, if you want to take your car and as much luggage as you can muster catch the boat. Just don’t swim.
But most importantly, they’re the only tickets that are still available! All tickets include free camping. Two day tickets are $193 + b/f, three day tickets are $226 plus b/f. Limited Gimme Shelter tickets are also available and include tent and sleeping mat.
It’s a banner year for Falls as well, with the Lorne site celebrating its 20th anniversary; while Tasmania’s Marion Bay location celebrates its 10th year. There’s true reason to celebrate too, following news earlier in the year that the festival site was rescued by a rich philanthropist from its financial struggles.

There’s a hell of a lot at stake when performing at a festival – potentially the biggest crowd of an artist’s career, being pitted against nature’s elements, sound and lighting that could go wrong at any moment. There’s the pressure to blow the act after you off stage, there’s the pressure to live up to hype and show that you are capable of pulling off a show on a massive stage. Mnay acts have come a cropper when trying to do this but many have risen to the occasion; the adrenaline and the massive crowds either overcoming them or proving that they are capable of being one of the best bands in the world. Join us as we count down some of the best festival performances ever. Watch this slideshow »
