Falls Festival organisers have announced that with the departure of General Manager Naoimi Daly and Event Manager Carmella Morgan, Falls Festival have joined forces with Splendour in the Grass organisers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco.
“The Falls Music & Arts Festival goes from strength to strength every year and the contributions from Naomi and Carmella have been immeasurable. I couldn’t think of a better team to join us in Jess and Paul as we continue this tradition for many years to come”. Simon Daly, Festival Founder.
Organisers have confirmed that there are no changes planned for either festival.
Falls Festival takes place in Lorne, Victoria and Marion Bay, Tasmania over New Years Eve. Splendour in the Grass recently returned to Byron Bay for 2012 after spending two years at Woodford in Queensland. Splendour organisers have long petitioned for government approval to move the event to a larger dedicated site — a move which will finally take place in 2013. The Splendour team have in the past expressed interest in holding other major festivals at the permanent site throughout the year.
In recent years the Falls Festival organisers had run a Brisbane counterpart known as Sunset Sounds that didn’t return in 2012.
