Taking rave-rap to the masses, Vince Staples is a different kind of cat. One of the hottest artists on the planet right now, this Californian pocket rocket has described his own creations as “Afrofuturism”, and indeed, there’s something in the break-neck beats and wonky flows that points directly at a future that we can only just imagine. Breaking out this year with his huge sophomore album Big Fish Theory, Staples has also displayed a talent for collaboration - hooking up with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Damon Albarn and even our very own festival friend Flume (could an on-stage collab be in the works?). Outspoken, quick-witted and supremely talented - Vince Staples is truly something new.

The Falls Music & Arts Festival is back in Western Australia! With Fremantle’s Kings Square redevelopment in full swing, the second ever rendition of Falls Downtown has a new but even more exciting home in Fremantle! Falls Downtown 2018 will be taking over the Fremantle Oval Precinct and once again will be incorporating and reimagining historic sites, streets, carparks and buildings to delight, entertain and inspire our audiences and artists! Our unique passouts policy will also continue to retain free flowing access to all of Fremantle’s many delights during the weekend of Jan 06 and Jan 07 –  Fremantle Markets, cafes, restaurants, retailers, artisans, tourist sites, the port, Bathers Beach and more.
