Today Falls Festival announces that when the event returns in the summer of 2022/2023, the Lorne event will be relocated to Pennyroyal Plains in Murroon, just a stone’s throw from Birregurra, and confirms that the festival will not return to Marion Bay in Tasmania.
After 27 years in beautiful Lorne and 17 years in fabulous Tassie it is with mixed feelings that Falls Festival moves on to its next chapter.
“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. We hope that our Lorne and Tassie Falls fam will join us at Pennyroyal Plains.” said Jess and Paul. “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.”
Less than 2 hours from Melbourne and 30 minutes from its previous home in Lorne, Pennyroyal Plains is a spectacular and never before used event location.
“The space is truly special. 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” said festival promoters Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco.
“We’re thrilled to welcome the Falls Festival to Colac Otway Shire for 2022/2023 and showcase our beautiful region to the musicians, event organisers, media and audience who will attend the three-day event. It will bring a much-welcomed boost to the local economy and a nice escape from the pressures of the last couple of years for music lovers near and far” said Colac Otway Shire Council Mayor, Cr Kate Hanson.
