88RISING - FEAT. RICH BRIAN & AUGUST 08 (ONLY AUS SHOWS)US
Something a little different and extremely cool for this year’s festival comes in the form of Asian hip-hop collective 88rising. Established as a label with the intention of championing Asian artists across America and Europe, they have recently crystallised and dropped their debut album Head In The Clouds – a release that features their entire roster. Bringing the whole thing together for the stage, 88rising will be showcasing (among others) the considerable talents of Rich Brian, an 18-year-old Chinese Indonesian prodigy who managed to teach himself English just by listening to popular hip-hop.
Falls Downtown 2019 will once again be taking over the Fremantle Oval Precinct along Parry Street and 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 05 and Jan 06 - Fremantle Markets, cafes, restaurants, retailers, artisans, tourist sites, the port, Bathers Beach and more.
