King Gizzard & The Lizard WizardAustralia
Prolific, ridiculous, psychedelic and supremely accomplished, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are back to blow more minds at this year’s festival. Currently still riding atop on any number of the 5 (count em: 5) albums they released last year, these Melbourne-based trouble-makers have garnered a significant international following devoted to their free-form wig outs and tasteful use of the humble flute. One of these records, the rhythmically thrilling Polygondwanaland landed at number 17 in Pitchfork’s Top 20 rock albums of 2018, with the website praising the band’s ability to “live in their own universe”. We should all be so lucky to spend just one day on their planet.
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.
