GLOBAL music phenomenon and Grammy Award-winner Flume will be welcoming 2018 in style at Falls Festival Byron Bay this New Years' Eve.

Flume acknowledged via his Facebook page that Falls Festival in Lorne was one of the first ever music festivals he played at.
"Falls Music and Arts Festival, I can't wait to be in you. Lorne was one of the first festivals I ever played. Excited to come back for round two,” he posted on his Facebook page .
His self-titled debut studio album, Flume, was released on November 2012 to positive reviews, topping the ARIA Albums Chart and reaching double-platinum accreditation in Australia.
Flume is regarded as the pioneer of future bass, who helped popularize the genre.
Flume has remixed songs from such diverse artists as Lorde, Sam Smith, Arcade Fire, Hermitude and Disclosure.
