The first ever Falls Downtown, Fremantle have announced a change to the festival lineup this January.

Unfortunately Childish Gambino won’t be attending the Falls downtown due to receiving his first ever Golden Globe nomination. Due to this clash he has to go back to America prematurely, but in good news he will be rescheduling the show at a later date.

Due to the timing being so close to Christmas a international replacement act wasn’t possible. Luckily not only one but two special Australian acts will be replacing Childish Gambino.

The Saturday night spot will be filled by psych legends King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and Australian hip hope royalty, All Day.

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have released 8 massive albums in only 5 short years. The versatile band cover the genres of free-form jazz, funk, rock, punk, psychedelic and folk collective. Their latest release Nonagon Infinity has been a huge hit.

All Day has established himself as a leader in the new era of Australian hip hop. After dropping out of arts school and living off stolen sachets of microwave rice, he turned to full time music dropping multiple mix tapes. He managed to debut in Triple J’s Hottest 100 with his hit So Good and debut an EP number one on the Air charts. His 2016 release Send Nudes, Monster Trucks, Slides and Raceway help establish him as a Australian cult figure.

The Festival boasts London Grammar, The Avalanches, Violent Soho, Matt Corby, Ta-ku, Pond, The Jezabels, Ball Park Music, Jamie T, Broods, ILLY and Grandmaster Flash as just some of the amazing acts performing across the two days.

For those with 1 day tickets for Saturday, January 7, refunds are available for original ticket holders only until 5pm ADST December 31, 2016.
