Falls Festival Ticket Ballot Closes Soon
After the amazing time we had in Marion Bay last year, we were elated when philanthropist Graeme Wood invested a shitload of money to ensure the financially troubled Falls Music and Arts Festival would celebrate it’s tenth birthday in 2012 at it’s second home in Tasmania.
Lorne is all well and good, but as the nearly 8000 people who travelled to Marion Bay last year know, Tasmania is where it’s at. And, since the lineup has basically made the decision about whether or not to go for you, now is the time to work out how the hell you’re going to get there. A mammoth 1700 additional seats per week have been added by the various airlines which fly to Tasmania over the festival period, and of course we all know more seats = cheaper flights = more money for goon bags. And, like the Vulture Van did last year, you can always cross the Strait on the Spirit of Tasmania. The ticket ballot closes soon (midnight on Thursday 2nd August, to be precise), and as an extra incentive to get your skates on and buy a Marion Bay ticket, the festival is offering a massive prize to on very lucky early bird purchaser, which includes return flights to Tassie, a week’s car hire, all the camping gear you’ll need to for the festival, one nights accommodation at the seriously luxurious MONA Pavilions (attached to possibly the world’s weirdest museum/art gallery), and a scenic flight so you can take in all of the Apple Isle’s beauty from the air! So much free shit!
Of course, the Lorne edition of the Falls Festival is on as always, and will boast the same epic lineup, just without the thrill of taking a boat or a plane to get there. So whether you prepare your map of Tasmania and head south, or are drawn to the majestic beauty of the Erskine Falls in Lorne, get involved in the best New Years you’re likely to have this side of 2013.
