The Falls Festival always manages to delight and surprise us here at Timber and Steel. While it’s not a folk festival by any stretch of the imagination, and diehard folkies are more likely spending their New Year elsewhere, there’s always just enough acoustic, indie-folk and roots on the bill to keep us happy.

This morning The Falls Festival, held each New Year at Marion Bay in Tasmania and Lorne in Victoria, announced the first bundle of artists for the 2012 event. Currently Boy & Bear is the only Timber and Steel friendly artist in the mix but it’s a pretty interesting lineup if you’re a lover of good music of all genres.

The Falls Festival organisers have committed to drip feeding the lineup again this year as a way of getting punters excited about the whole event, not just the headliners. The ballot for tickets is currently open with more details on the official web site. Check out the full lineup so far below:

Beach House
Best Coast
Boy & Bear
The Flaming Lips
The Vaccines
